"We are happy to present our new solutions, developed by our R&D department," Benny Kokia, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, told MT. "Our close relationships and ongoing communication with our customers allow us to very rapidly translate lessons learned in the field into upgrades for our systems – and to quickly bring the most advanced sights to the market. Both the MEPRO NOA NYX and the MEPRO HUNTER were updated in this type of rapid process. We are pleased that our customers recognize our efforts and appreciate the quality of our products – and that special units have already purchased the new sights."

The latest versions of the MEPRO NOA NYX - Lightweight Uncooled Thermal Weapon Sight are unveiled at Milipol, supporting 640x480 microbolometer cores (17μ). They provide a more advanced image, a wider field-of-vision, and longer ranges, and include color displays and overlays.  The thermal MEPRO NOA NYX sight guarantees high-quality observation and precision target engagement – enabling efficient day & night operations in low-light conditions, dust and smoke scenarios, and in complete darkness common in CQB.

The sight is provided in a compact, lightweight and durable enclosure, minimizing weapon load and ensuring convenient and reliable operation at all times. Advanced power saving capabilities based on a motion sensor combined with utilization of four commercially available “AA” batteries significantly reduce the sight’s Life Cycle Costs (LCC).

The new generation of the MEPRO HUNTER Sniper's Night Vision Weapon Sight with x4 or x6 magnification, optimized for sniper operations, will be launched at the exhibition. Included among the modifications are: An improved zeroing mechanism that allows increased accuracy for both short and long distances – enabling ballistic compensation, as well as changing the reticles for better accuracy; Reduced click size enabling greater precision during the zeroing process; Upgraded adapter that enables user to maintain zeroing during installation and removal of the sight.
