M5 Sights and MINIMON (L) Monoculars
Meprolight has won a follow-on contract to supply MEPRO M5 sights and MEPRO MINIMON (L) multifunction vision monoculars to a Western European Federal Police Force Special Unit.
The advanced and unique capabilities of these high-quality sights make them ideally suited to the needs of special police units. Among their features are a ruggedised design that withstands extreme weather and operating conditions, light weight, low power consumption enabling extended operation time while requiring only a single AA commercial battery, and a unique power-saving system extending operating time without compromising target acquisition.
“Meprolight provides versatile solutions suited to military, [homeland security] and law enforcement missions. This new contract is an add-on to tenders previously awarded to Meprolight for the supply of the same products to the same customer. As with all follow-on orders, it is further confirmation of the suitability of the company’s solutions to the customer’s needs and additional proof of their high quality,” commented the company’s Regional Vice President Marketing and Sales, David Shenhav.
The compact, energy efficient MEPRO M5 Red-Dot Sight provides thousands of operating hours with a single AA battery. Featuring battle-proven LED technology and rugged MIL-STD design, the sight assures reliability under the harshest environmental conditions. With its large display window and reticle, it ensures rapid target acquisition with both eyes open. Offering numerous reticle brightness intensities and various reticle configurations, the MEPRO M5 suits every tactical scenario. To facilitate night operations and long-range target engagement, it is compatible with the most advanced image intensification night vision goggles (NVG) monoculars, as well as with magnifying scopes. Its human engineering allows the positioning of NVGs and magnifiers close to the sight’s optics with no decrease in the field of view and without compromising convenient switch operation.
The MEPRO MINIMON (L) can be used in monocular or binocular configuration, having two MEPRO MINIMONs connected via a special bridge. It enables full tactical flexibility using either one or both eyes during missions, including observation, target acquisition, and driving. Multifunctional and extremely lightweight, it can be head-, helmet- or weapon-mounted or hand-held. The monocular operates more than 40 continuous hours using either a single AA or a CR123 battery, provides exceptional night vision imagery while allowing the user to maintain full situational awareness with the unaided eye or a 3D view in binocular configuration. It is built to MIL-STD 810, has a 40° field of view and is compatible with all IR illumination and laser pointers, and while weapon-mounted in tandem behind a day ‘red-dot’ sight, creates an efficient night vision sight.
