The Meprolight Nyx 200 riflescope family also includes a high sensitivity daylight camera for low light and an IR pointer. The most technologically advanced is the Nyx 222


Israeli company Meprolight has developed a multifunctional device Nyx-222, which combines a thermal imaging channel based on a 640x480 matrix with a pitch of 17 microns, a day camera or a camera with an image intensifier tube and a Class 3 infrared pointer. In the family under the common designation Nyx 200, this device is the most technically advanced . The Nyx-222 has an x2 magnification and a high resolution daylight camera providing a field of view of 11.3 ° x8.5 °. This allows you to detect a target the size of a person at a distance of 350-400 meters, if necessary, at any time, you can switch to thermal imaging mode. The built-in IR pointer, illuminating the targets by the operator who wears night vision devices, allows you to fire at a light spot. A digital recording device saves a picture from all channels for further analysis or solving legal issues. The Nyx-222 sight with an adapter and without four batteries weighs 850 grams. Batteries weigh about 60 grams, but the weight doubles when choosing a rechargeable battery. The Nyx-212 is equivalent to the previous model, but has an x1 magnification and weighs 150 grams less. Meprolight has already received orders for its Nyx sights, which are currently in serial production.


Introduced at the beginning of 2019, the Dragonit S 12 Detachable Thermal Sight from Excelitas Qioptiq is ready for production, as several orders have already been received for it


The Turkish company Transvaro has developed the Engerek-SAO thermal imaging sight in the "W" version (pictured), equipped with a wireless communication channel, through which images from the sight are sent to the helmet-mounted display of the owner

The Turkish company Transvaro offers a full line of day and night sights. One of the latest additions to this line is the uncooled Engerek-S40 sight with an increase of x1.3, which allows it to be used in close combat, as well as when mounted on assault rifles - at medium distances. The matrix of the device with a size of 640x480 and with a step of 17 microns works in the range of 8-14 microns and can be used in full-fledged thermal imaging and contour modes. The field of view is 16.3 ° x12.2 °, electronic magnification x2 and x4 are available. The device is equipped with a pointer that operates in the invisible IR spectrum at a wavelength of 830 nm. The crosshair can be selected from the menu, electronic zeroing is available along with remote control. The basic S40 model weighs less than 600 grams without two 18650 lithium-ion batteries and optional accessories. The S40W (“W” means wireless) is similar to the S40, but does not have an IR pointer. but it has a number of elements that are optional for the S40 model. A short-range wireless radio channel (less than a meter) is the most important of them; it operates at a very high frequency close to 10 GHz, which makes it difficult to jam. A one-way communication channel transmits images from the sight to the soldier's helmet-mounted display, as well as to a personal radio station to send images and videos to the higher command. A limited memory is built into the sight itself, which allows you to keep track of shots. The S40W weighs 7000 grams.


Excelitas Qioptiq Phoenix-S is based on the new MWIR HOT sensor, which needs less energy to cool, which increases the overall system runtime

Medium wave thermal imaging


Cooled systems in the wavelength range of 3-5 μm, in contrast to the systems described above, are able to see a smaller temperature difference. Compared to previous types of sensors with operating temperatures of about 80 ° K, the new sensors operate at higher temperatures of about 150 ° K, and also have lower power consumption compared to older systems.

The all-new long-range cooled thermal imaging devices for sniping have recently been shown by Excelitas Qioptiq. The removable Phoenix-S trailer, which implements the latest MWIR-HOT technology (mid-wave [medium] IR-range - high operating temperatures), is based on a 640x512 matrix with a pitch of 15 μm and a frame rate of 60 Hz. Thanks to the new technology, eight AA lithium-disulfide batteries allow working at a temperature of 25 ° С continuously for 6 hours. The Phoenix-S with a field of view of 3.8 ° x 3.0 ° can work in combination with daylight optics with magnification up to x25. According to the company, the detection distance is 4,5 km for a growth target and 8,8 km for a target the size of an armored car, recognition distances are 1,6 and 3,6 km, respectively, and identification distances are 800 and 1900 meters. Matrix cooling takes less than 4 minutes. The device is equipped with a GPS system, a digital compass and orientation sensors, the mass in working condition, including the lens cap, case and batteries is less than 1,6 kg. The Phoenix-S is designed to be mounted on .338 LM and 12,7 mm caliber sniper rifles, but thanks to its compact dimensions of 285x80x95 mm, it can be used with 7,62 mm caliber rifles as well weapons support, for example, machine guns. The sight is designed to work in combination with observation binoculars and determine the coordinates of the target Phoenix-H, which is based on the same sensor with MWIR NOT technology. This binocular is capable of transmitting the target to the shooter, since both systems are equipped with wireless communication. Excelitas Qioptiq has already received several orders from unnamed special units, the implementation of which is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2020.

FUR Systems' ThermoSight H1SS-XLR, although it appeared on the market several years ago, is constantly being updated. For example, an angle adjustment has been introduced in order to see the target when shooting at very long ranges

The FLIR Systems ThermoSight HISS-XLR retractable scope, which appeared on the market in 2014, is designed for sniper shooting at very long ranges. Although the instrument is almost 6 years old, FLIR is constantly upgrading it to meet customer requirements. The company does not disclose the customers of this system, but it is clear that the main buyers of such high-class systems are special forces. Although the 640x480 matrix and a 240 mm lens, providing a field of view of 2.29 ° x1.72 °, remained the same, the display was replaced. The new larger, higher-resolution display delivers a high-definition standard image, which increases detection and identification ranges. The HISS-XLR sight has now got the opportunity to dock with optics with a magnification of x28, which is almost twice as much as the original version. Another key improvement is the ability to align with all ballistic computers, which allows the shooter to get all the necessary data through the scope. The new version took into account the comments of users who needed to adjust the elevation so that the shooter could move the vertical crosshair vertically and see the target during shooting at very long ranges. The sight is also qualified for weapons of 12,7 mm caliber. Another software modification made it possible to obtain an improved aiming point and the possibility of rapid electronic zeroing. FLIR Systems was able to save weight and power consumption of less than 6 watts of the previous options, but at the same time added new features. The weight of the HISS-XLR sight measuring 292x110x76 mm with two battery packs is 1,89 kg. Each of the blocks consists of four CR123 batteries, one block is mounted on the right and the other on the left side of the sight. Without turning off the sight, you can hot-swap one of the blocks, while the device continues to work on the second block.


The Lithuanian company Brolis is one of the first companies to enter the market with a removable scope of SWIR technology, which allows, among other things, to see through the windows and windows of cars

Short wave thermal imaging


A new generation of night vision sights comes onto the scene. These systems are based on SWIR (Short Wave Infra Red) technology sensors operating in the short-wave (far) infrared region of the spectrum, as a rule, in the range of 0,9-1,7 μm. One of the main advantages of these devices is that they allow you to see through glass, for example, windows, car windows, etc., which other thermal imaging devices cannot. In addition, they provide much better characteristics in fog and haze, exclude optical distortion when shooting from a rifle with a hot barrel, while a better image allows you to increase the distance of positive identification of the growth target.

The Lithuanian company Brolis Group is actively engaged in the technology of integrated photonic sensors, developing advanced optoelectronic systems for the military and security services. Its portfolio includes the long-range mountable S100U sight of SWIR technology, which includes the latest 640x512 matrix with 15 micron pitch on indium and gallium arsenide and an indium phosphide laser diode. The sight is equipped with a 100 mm lens, providing a field of view of 5.5 ° x4.4 °, it can be combined with daytime optics with an increase from x3 to x12. According to Brolis, the detection and recognition distances for the growth target are 3,8 and 1,2 km, respectively, and 5,1 and 1,6 km for the purpose of the NATO standard. The sight body is made of aluminum alloy 7075 and can withstand recoil of sniper rifles of caliber up to 12,7 mm. The S100U is equipped with an integrated Class 4 laser illumination device operating at a wavelength of 1550 nm. This device with an adjustable output power of up to 1,5 W and a working range of up to 3 km has a mechanical beam divergence control, adjustable from 10 to 70 milliradians to work in complete darkness or when illuminated through windows. Images can be recorded to a micro-SD memory card, PAL video output is also available. The S100U is powered by eight CR123A batteries, providing more than seven hours of operation; power consumption when the laser backlight is off is less than 7 watts. The dimensions of the device weighing less than 2,1 kg are 260x110x120 mm.


The HuntiR sight developed by the German company AIM Infrarot-Module operates in the SWIR range. According to AIM Infrarot-Module, the first HuntiR sight with final characteristics will be ready in late March 2020.


SmartShooter is constantly improving its products in close collaboration with the Israeli army, resulting in SMASH 2000 and 2000+ sights. The second model is characterized by an additional anti-UAV mode


In the fall of 2016, the German company AIM Infrarot-Module presented a demo of its removable thermal imaging sight for snipers and high-ranking shooters. It operates in the extended SWIR range, in the range of 0,9–2,5 μm, which makes it possible to detect light marks generated by lasers operating at a wavelength of 2,5 μm. The HuntiR designation was developed for several years in close collaboration with the German Special Forces Command KSK (Kommando Spezialkrafte). Two years later, a prototype was shown, at that time it would seem with the final characteristics: field of view 8 ° x6 °, dimensions 145x110x95 mm and weight 1 kg, battery life 4 hours. But later, German KSK special forces demanded improved optics, capable of providing work at distances of more than 1 km, which slightly increased the weight to 1,1 kg. At DSEI 2019, it was revealed that KSK required further refinements. To work in hot climates, a new case is needed to provide better cooling, a new keypad was also required, and special batteries needed to be switched to standard batteries. At the same time, the weight remained the same as that of the demo sample. According to AIM Infrarot-Module, the first HuntiR sight with final specifications will be ready at the end of March 2020.


The Israeli company Elbit Systems recently introduced the SmartSight sight - an additional digital device that includes a GPS module and an inertial unit. The sight with indication of compass and laser rangefinder data can be equipped with an optional wireless protected data channel


The SMASH 2000 fire control system is being tested with an M4 rifle. It captures the target and allows you to shoot only when the defeat is almost guaranteed

Fire control systems


The Israeli company SmartShooter offers its line of SMASH sights, which are actually fire control systems (LMS). Developed in close cooperation with the Israeli army, the SMASH system allows the shooter to open fire only when the system evaluates the hit on the target as high, of course, it also takes into account external conditions. The built-in computer stores data from different weapons, at the moment from M4 and AR-15 rifles with 193 mm M855 or M5,56 rounds and SR25 and M110 sniper rifles with 7,62 mm M188LR cartridge. According to the company, the system allows you to increase the probability of hitting from the first shot from 100 meters to 80%, which practically equalizes inexperienced and experienced soldiers. From the very first appearance, the system has been constantly evolving and now SmartShooter offers two options: SMASH 2000 and SMASH 2000 Plus. The second model is equipped with a regime for fighting drones, which allows you to fire air targets in the daytime at altitudes up to 200 meters; typical firing distances for fixed and moving targets in the daytime are 300 meters. While the daytime display is available on the transparent screen of the mirror sight, in night mode it is displayed on video displays for low light. The system consists of an aiming block and a fire blocking mechanism, which is built into the pistol grip with a safety bracket that replaces the original handle on the weapon. The scope is compact, measures 195x87,5x81 mm, weighs 980 grams, and is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack, guaranteeing 72 hours of operation or up to 3600 shots when the SMASH system is operating. The sight is equipped with a near infrared illuminator and a built-in video recording function.

After a year of field testing in the Israeli army, the SMASH system has been improved, and the human-machine interface has also been updated. The system has now been adopted to supply the Israeli armed forces, in which it has already been used against flying threats launched from the Gaza Strip.

It is also purchased by several structures of the American army. which led to the addition of new ballistic tables for new types of ammunition, including the 6,5 mm Creedmoor cartridge and the 6,8 mm Remington SPC cartridge. According to SmartShooter, not only special forces showed interest in the SMASH system, but also the regular army, which is currently conducting its operational assessment.

      And I, as a naive young man of Gurana, remained faithful to KO-44, which in our Transbaikalia since my wet childhood has remained the best weapon for a hunter. I did not fight, but I love weapons, and how much has been done is impossible to imagine, but I will remain faithful to the old man KO-44. Military people will not understand me, well, sorry, to each his own.

            I believe that very soon robotic sniper systems will appear (if they have not already appeared)
            The operator pokes a finger on the screen of the tablet, marking targets on the map, and the complex shoots them automatically.

                Human snipers capable of hitting a target at extreme distances are unique.
                Thousands of robots can be riveted.
                The robot does not get sick, does not feel emotion - if they indicate to hit the child, it will fire. And simple performers without special remorse of morality that stick in the control tablet on the target, unlike the same sniper, are easier to find.
                The robot does not get tired; it can be ambushed for several days.
                Finally, the robot does not have to be evacuated after surgery.

      Still, it’s interesting to know which is more effective: a platoon creating a barrage fire (out of 10000 bullets, one hits the target) or a platoon shooting to defeat a specific target. Modern military science says the first is better. But vague suspicions torment me ......

        Immediately they will come, our 8 F16 will arrive, we will supply them with infrared sights and rush ...

        But UTB is really difficult .... we change them, and they come more and more idiotic. Education has completely fallen, the people are dumb and vote for people like them. Fact. Education is the only opportunity for every country to get out of .... from the dunghill. I definitely spoke on the street with a friend that we have a government of the most narrow-minded people. And there is no one to change, although there is an opportunity.

                Yes. When you get very tired of some kind, we can change it. That is the question of who the people choose is very controversial. As the uneducated people specified in the top post, they choose the one who will be shown to him by the technologists. In this trouble.

                My red thread, Nexus, in this conversation was that educating people is the best method to get out of the hole. Therefore, our real and your managers do not want to develop education.

                  Eugene, I’ll probably tell you a big secret, but it’s not the people who choose at all. This whole performance with a trip to the polling stations is just a circus performance. All elections, revolutions, Maidan are carried out artificially and not at the will of the people. The slave does not have the right to vote. Sorry for that definition. But in fact, ordinary people are the slaves of the system. You live by the laws that are written for you by someone. They explain to you what the people choose, and you blindly believe it. But ask yourself the question: why then, with a popular choice, do the authorities stand with a desire to fight? Did you vote for the WAR?

                    I don’t know how it is in the EU, I worked in the elections in the Russian Federation from 95 to 10, where there was no CEO. Elections, the result of how people voted (or, if you like, how you organized the election campaign), no calculations change - everything is transparent to indecent there. If something goes wrong, there is a set of measures that are used by those who receive money for this. Only 2 cases are remembered: in one, the commission organized a stuffing, we lost then, but found all involved, organized a criminal case (not related to the election, but the case) and won the by-election half a year later; in another, the TEC stupidly ignored the protocols of the PECs and made its protocol as they needed. Immediately a crowd of lawyers and journalists raised a howl, the matter went to trial, justice was restored. It is clear that we ourselves "worked" with commissions of all levels, like competitors, as without this, but when the turnout is not more than 50%, and if 80-90% went to the polls, then what the hell commissions will help, here only it depends on you how you convinced the people. That is, how they vote. In general, for a long time you can on this topic. The trick is that people are passive. This is what technologists use.

    Yes, everything rests on the cost. If a tricked-out machine gun / rifle of an ordinary servant (I do not take snipers and other specialists into account) is more expensive than the same mortar / RPG, no one will take such a machine gun. There's no point. It’s easier to hammer a couple of mines and is guaranteed to destroy the target than to oil from afar with an ultra-precise machine.

          There are many new weapons, sn. Rifles, pistols, submachine guns, machine guns! Optics, accessories, rangefinders, ballistic computers and computers, perfect cartridges and their range with different bullets, and most importantly, these are new calibers !!!!
          And that's all for the last 10 years !!!!!!
          Each exhibition is something new, just fail to progress.
          Conclusion: because of the conservatives who adore Kalashmat, PM, UAZ, the army and structures lag behind the advanced armies of the world every second!

            You have listed a lot, but the specifics are zero. Fundamentally new did not appear, the ranges remained the same. You do not list the calibers to me (they have always been in a great variety), but specifically write: which particular new model, adopted for service, made a revolution in range, for example. Single instances and individual shots for a couple of kilometers you can not mention is exclusive.

                And why is the S-16 better than the "ancient" screw cutter? the most trivial noiseless with a subsonic cartridge. What is so revolutionary there? And if the entire design of the BCC was specially designed for silent shooting, then the grendel was made stupidly on the basis of the M-16. This is not good, and not bad, just the designers went this way. AK is also equipped with PBS and a subsonic cartridge, essentially the same grendel))))) More specifically, if you defend your position.

    A soldier on the battlefield is weighted with so many "nishtyaks" that it becomes like a robocop or robovoy, it does not matter. The important thing is that who did not have time, may be in a lousy situation, losing.
    Not everything, of course, is suitable for linear combat, but also positional confrontation, tactics of attack from an ambush, and many difficulties can present to someone who is not ready to withstand this. And this is, first of all, highly technological equipment.

          When you lie in a pit in the middle of a night forest, you’ll be paid for everyone who is 300-500 m away, and if you scratch a field in full growth, then no nishtyaks can help out. Well, except if you're stupidly lucky. So without a head in the army does not, that's right.

      Not hell, this is the temperature to which the thermal imager matrix cools. Therefore, it is called cooled. In the needle for this is a container with liquid nitrogen, and then a small heat pump.

        You are mistaken, in the "Needle" cylinder with compressed nitrogen, the cooling of the GOS occurs when it is throttled. And working with liquid nitrogen is still a "pleasure".

    All this is wonderful and understandable that progress does not stand still. But what did the author want to say by pulling information from advertising booklets? Far to see does not mean exactly getting to the distance of this visibility. The shooter has its limits. Optical suppression systems are also developing, and the usual a light bomb makes most of these super devices blind. In conditions of single actions against paramilitaries, this is one thing, in a full-fledged war with an equal enemy, this is completely different, and to make a sniper out of every soldier is generally unrealistic Fr. As the experience of wars shows, the average soldier breaks complex equipment very quickly.

      An ordinary light bomb will not hurt a damn thing. These are thermal imagers, they do not care about the illumination. To prevent them, you will have to make fires in front of you for the entire length of the positions.

    The SWIR shortwave range relates to infrared radiation, but not to the thermal spectrum - illumination from external sources is required (sun, moon, night sky with stars, open fire, etc.). Because SWIR does not work inside buildings, but it penetrates through window glass. The advantage over the visible range of light is an order of magnitude longer detection range in conditions of smoke, dust, fog, rain and snow.

    The medium and long wavelength ranges of infrared radiation belong to the thermal spectrum and do not require external illumination, because they are generated by any heated body (but they do not penetrate through window glass and do not differ in an external environment of equal temperature). Detection range in poor atmospheric conditions is even higher than that of SWIR.

    The main trend in optoelectronic observation devices is the use of single-channel integrated arrays, one part of the pixels of which receives visible light, and the other part - SWIR (the glass optics are the same for them).

      Back in 2002, the batteries (rechargeable) for the thermal imager kept two hours of continuous operation for a device the size of an amateur video camera. Ever since, the batteries have advanced a lot, and the consumption of devices has greatly decreased.

    I see no reason to argue. Science and technology do not stand still, the question of price - over time, this problem will also be smoothed out. Another question is that everything is there, but where are we now and where will we be tomorrow? This side also needed to be revealed, at least a little.

    And if you put all this together, then apparently the main type of shooting will be single shooting. Well, then why all these dances around the machines. It would not be in a different reality.

    Snipers are not the elite of the infantry. The sniper loses all its advantages with a reduction in the battle distance to 200-300-400 meters. These are just highly specialized units, the demand for which is very limited. Within this demand, they are in demand, but the same sappers, grenade throwers or Marxman are no less in demand, but no one considers them to be the elite.
    It would seem that easier? Each infantryman is sucked with superoptics, and that’s all, all the enemies are killed.
    Probably because it is easier, cheaper and safer to knock out enemy infantry by passing the coordinates of company / battalion artillery.

      Powerful thermal imagers are heavy due to the need to cool the matrix.

      And in them it is not always possible to see a polar bear on ice, but in the ultraviolet it is easy, and the camera is small and it is not necessary to cool. but ideally, you need to have two three cameras on different wave ranges, plus a comp for recognizing the image and highlighting the target on it with the function of displaying the hit point for the current time, and the shooter must combine this point with the target and the comp will give the command to detonate the cartridge’s electrocapsule . Another computer should predict uncontrolled shooter fluctuations in his weapon at the time of aiming and predict the movement of the target well, at least 0.1 seconds. It is even more ideal to hinge the barrel to the bed (as if with a small "shat") so that the micromotors in two planes do the micro-tuning of the barrel within one two degrees of the solid angle. Of course, there should be an image recording function for further analysis of the result of the shot. Thus, if you have a smart, automatic sight, then you do not need to shoot bursts and you do not need to have a lot of bullets with a failure.

    The theory that you can’t fire without aimed fire does not stand up to criticism! All this is relevant for local conflicts, which have just been happening lately. For police operations. And then as soon as everything slips into chaos, everyone suddenly gets to hell with the rules. And the notion of concomitant damage, war crimes, civilian casualties go to the background. And forbidden and inhumane means will be and will be used. War is always dirt.
    Automatic fire, as well as non-targeted shooting, was and will be. Just the same, often the fire is fired without prolonged direct visual contact. You shoot towards the enemy, at the place where he is supposed to be, and not at the enemy whom you see,
    The sight is a necessary thing, and let it be, but this does not exclude both automatic fire and not aimed shooting.

      Quite right, the shooter’s reaction time should also be taken into account, for example, he notices the target does not have time to aim, as it disappears and often shoots at the place where it disappeared, the aiming time increases with increasing distance.

    4. Not aimed shooting - this is when you just don’t know where the enemy is at the right moment ...

    Aiming is when you observe a target in your sight! When the target is conditionally in a trench, in a building, in a window. You know where the target is for sure, but you observe for a short time and not the fact that it is in the sight. And then there is a harassing fire, suppression fire , distracting fire, fettering someone as taught.
    From here comes the frantic consumption of cartridges in conflicts for one killed soul. And no matter what kind of sight you give, this will not exclude this type of fire. But as I said, let it be better, since in aimed shooting it really expanding capabilities, at least as a means of observation.
    Just aimed fire on the battlefield is not that much. The exception is the first minutes of an ambush (competent ambush), there really is an opportunity to aim.
