Soldiers do not have the luxury to choose the time of engagement in combat. Although daytime operations do not always bring visibility challenges, it is the night mission where visibility issues generally crop-up. Natural occurences such as bad weather, fog, vegetation alongside man-made obstacles hamper the pace of an operation, thus decreasing its effectiveness and putting the lives of soldiers at risk. MKU’s progression in field of electro-optics, especially thermal imaging technology, helps armed forces respond and carry out missions faster by delivering devices that detect minute differences in heat to produce images without the need of any visible light.
MKU’s NETRO TW-4000 is a sighting device that is equipped with high resolution thermal imaging camera and in-built system for marking range. NETRO TW-4000 is MIL Std 1913 compatible and can be mounted on a range of arms, varying from small arms to heavier weapons as well. The device at 270x75x86mm and less than 1kg weight, has an in-built system for marking range, confirms MIL standards and is capable of producing real time video. It is all weather capable, water proof, dust proof and corrosion free from Salinity, having a resolution of 640x480 pixels and a field of view of 12x9 degrees with a -6 to +4 diopter and a 800x900 (SVGA) AMOLED display.
