Safran companies introduce new defense technologies at AUSA
October 3, 2016
Vectronix Inc., Optics 1, Sagem Avionics, and MorphoTrak – all companies under the Safran umbrella – are introducing their newest defense technology solutions at the Vectronix Inc. (Safran) booth during this week's Association of the U.S. Army (AUSA) Annual Conference in Washington, D.C.
In addition to promoting its complete range of portable observation and target optronics solutions, Vectronix Inc. is showcasing its newest product, the High-Resolution Thermal Viewer (HRTV) and new LRF OEM laser rangefinder modules. The HRTV was developed – based on the success of the Long-range Thermal Video Imaging System (LRTV) – to be a lightweight, multifunctional, long-range binocular system that provides operators with superior situational awareness and advanced connectivity in the field.
Optics 1, the wholly-owned R&D subsidiary of Vectronix Inc., is introducing the next generation of thermal and rangefinding technologies, including the Enhanced Clip-On Thermal Imager (E-COTI), Enhanced Clip-On SWIR Imager (E-COSI), and the Integrated Compact Ultralight Gun-Mounted Rangefinder (I-CUGR). The E-COTI and E-COSI offer operators the ability to seamlessly inject images from the device directly into night vision goggles. The I-CUGR, a weapon-mounted rangefinder, gives operators the ability to range without taking hands off the weapon system.
Also at AUSA, the Sagem Avionics subsidiary of Safran Electronics & Defense is displaying its best-in-class inertial technologies, including the BlueNaute and the Epsilon family. These inertial navigation systems allow for precise navigation, even in GPS-denied environments. Other products being showcased include illuminated pushbutton switches and indicators for use in land, air, and maritime platforms.
Safran's exhibit of security equipment includes the Morpho Ruggedized LiveScan Jumpkit, a biometric acquisition solution designed for austere environments. The highly portable kit is transportable for use in military operations and natural disasters, where it can be deployed quickly and efficiently. The entire kit is made up of components designed to resist harsh conditions: the MorphoTop® fingerprint scanner, travel document machine readable zone (MRZ) reader, face capture camera, ruggedized laptop, and rechargeable battery are packed in a secure, watertight carrying case.
The Vectronix Inc. (Safran) AUSA exhibit is located at Booth #1703.
