Safran JIM COMPACT infrared binoculars selected by a 7th NATO customer
The JIM COMPACT multifunction infrared binoculars by Safran Electronics & Defense, unveiled at Eurosatory 2016, have now been chosen by seven NATO countries. “In particular, these latest-generation binoculars are recognised as the best solution for special forces, since they meet the full range of ISTAR missions: Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition & Reconnaissance),” according to Safran officials.
JIM COMPACT, being very light (less than 2kg, including battery), features long range and advanced battlefield connectivity to meet the users’ most demanding requirements, especially size, weight and power (SWaP), as well as run-time. Because of its intuitive ergonomic design, low-light sensor, cooled infrared and daytime sensors already used on the original JIM LR long-range binoculars, and pointer and laser designator displays (See-Spot), JIM COMPACT, “delivers the best performance/weight ratio on the market,” acxording to the company.
