Meprolight announced today that Israel's Ministry of Defense (IMOD) purchased hundreds of MEPRO LI-OR Night Vision Sights for various IDF departments.
The company added that an undisclosed number of other countries' armies have also purchased the MEPRO MINIMON (L) Multi-Functional Lightweight Mini-Monoculars and MEPRO BINIMON (A) Aviator's Night Vision Systems.
The MEPRO LI-OR series of weapon sights is compact, lightweight and easy to operate. The sights enhance sharpshooter and sniper performance in open-terrain, jungle environments, and in urban night operations. Mountable on a wide variety of weapon platforms, MEPRO LI-OR can be supplied with any standard high-quality 18mm image intensifier tube ensuring superior imaging quality under low-light and night conditions. The systems are available with x4 or x7 magnification and include an illuminated red open-cross or mil-dot reticle.
MEPRO MINIMON (L) meets requirements characterizing night operations in harsh tactical and environmental conditions including special naval operations requiring submersion to a depth of up to 20 meters. Based on the proven monocular operation concept, equipped with a 40ES field-of-view and a large eye-relief, the system provides exceptional night vision imagery while allowing the user to maintain full situational awareness with the unaided eye. Utilizing a standard high-quality 18mm image intensifying tube and featuring a modular design, it can be used in single or binocular configurations while head-mounted, helmet-mounted, weapon-mounted or hand-held. The system has been sold to a South American government agency.
The MEPRO BINIMON (A) night vision binocular provides the user with depth perception (3D viewing) and delivers outstanding performance under a wide range of lighting and environmental conditions. Collaboration with various air crews during system development has resulted in an ergonomic design as well as easy and intuitive system operation. The binocular is rugged and metal-constructed, yet is a lightweight system compatible with all commercially available 18mm image intensifier tube technologies. The system fits most aviator helmet visors and can be used in either fixed or rotary wing aircraft, and is also compatible with heads-up displays (HUD). The system has been sold to a leading air force.
According to Eli Gold, CEO of Meprolight said, "South America is a large and important market for us, and we are working to expand our footprint in this market – and happily are meeting with great success".
