The Israeli Defense Force (IDF) has inducted two configurations of Elbit Systems' XACT family of Weapon Sights.

 

The company was recently selected to provide thousands of its XACT th65 and XACT th64 uncooled thermal imaging weapon sights to marksmen of both Infantry and Special Operation Forces of the IDF, Elbit Systems said in a statement Thursday.

 

Last year, the company concluded delivery of 4,800XACTth65 weapon sights to the Australian Army.

In a Clip-on or Stand Alone configuration, the compact XACT weapon sights enable effective operation in day and night. Featuring a high resolution colored OLED display, image processing capabilities and a Region of Interest algorithm, XACT weapon sights enable effective target engagement even under degraded visibility conditions, the statement read.

 

XACT weapon sights eliminate the need for Non Uniformity Calibration (NUC) or shutter-based calibration thereby enabling continuous and consistent operation. The XACT th64 provides vehicle target recognition from a 1,100-meter range and human target recognition from a 600-meter range, while the XACT th65 enables vehicle target recognition from 1,250 meters and human target recognition from 750 meters. Both weapon sights are housed in a sealed fully submersible metal housing.
