JENA, Germany, June 18, 2012 — For reconnaissance and target acquisition applications, Jenoptik has announced the multifunctional, compact and lightweight Nyxus Bird laser rangefinder, which offers a thermal imager that combines day/night vision with target localization capability. Weighing <1.5 kg, the device enhances the dismounted soldier’s reconnaissance abilities while optimizing his mobility, satisfying the demanding requirements of infantry and special forces for powerful and lightweight portable optronic equipment.

The laser rangefinder combines the high-resolution thermal imager with high-quality glass optics, a digital magnetic compass and a global positioning system.

The imager provides clear night vision in absolute darkness, vision through fog or smoke, and detection of camouflaged targets — also under daylight conditions and at great distances. The uncooled infrared detector ensures noiseless operation, a short startup time and long autonomous battery operating time.

Multiple coated monocular glass optics (direct view optics) with sevenfold magnification offer high-resolution day vision and can be combined with standard helmet-mounted image intensifiers or night-vision goggles.

The eye-safe rangefinder operates at 1550 nm, preventing detection by night-vision devices based on image intensifiers.
