CE’s NightConqueror high-performance thermal imagers have been selected as the imager of choice for new platforms and as an upgrade to many existing legacy vehicles for U.S. and foreign militaries. These modules carve out a true path to horizontal technology insertion across numerous battle platforms. They are true "drop-in replacements" that in every way meet or exceed the older unit's form, fit, and function. CE’s upgraded legacy platforms provide flexibility and synergy in a variety of applications, addressing many of today’s most difficult mission profiles.
Available in custom configurations to match-up to today's challenging mission profiles, CE MWIR thermal imagers significantly extend the reach of the warfighter in tracking, target recognition/identification/ acquisition, and other land combat applications. While they appear to be functionally identical to the operator, they provide greatly improved imaging performance, and gather efficient, up-to-date combat intelligence for reconnaissance, surveillance, and target acquisition. Additionally the units:
- Increase engagement range
- Provide a wider field of view which enhances target acquisition
- Distinguish friend from foe beyond (normal) visual range
- Provide precision sighting of munitions with increased lethal effect
- Engage targets faster at an extended range
