  • Date: 9th October 2019
  • Company: Qioptiq

DRAGON-S12 is the new In-line Thermal Sight, and is part of the latest development in thermal imaging technology from Excelitas. Providing snipers with 24hr surveillance and target engagement capability, the sight is designed specifically to meet target and surveillance requirements for military customers and law enforcement agencies, providing high performance within a lightweight compact and rugged military qualified design. This delivers a capability to detect, recognize and identify man and vehicle targets 24hours a day, in poor visibility, in total darkness and through battlefield obscurants.

DRAGON-S12 utilizes a state of the art 640x480 format 12μm, 60Hz uncooled thermal sensor coupled with a near silent shutter, delivering class leading sensitivity and uniformity. The sight attaches to Picatinny and NATO accessory rails in front of the day sight via a quick release throw lever, providing 24hr capability without the need to remove or re-zero the day sight.
