CRANE Gunner Weapon Station Sight with Cooled Thermal Camera

for remotely controlled weapon stations

CRANE LR and XLR gunner weapon station sight is a multi-sensor electro-optical container developed for integration into remotely controlled weapon stations. This gunner sight is used in a long range applications to target objects. Primary it can be used on weapon stations but due its versatility it can also be mounted on armored vehicles, tanks or turrets.

Combination of the sensors inside the container ensures the capability of the system to see in all weather and light conditions. There are three types of sensors – day camera, thermal imaging camera and LRF. Day channel contains a zoom camera with color and B/W mode, for night channel is used a cooled thermal imaging camera. Range measurements are performed by an eye safe laser range finder.

The body of the container is ruggedized against vibrations and resistant to all weather conditions. The advantage of the container is its relatively small size. Its dimension is designed to be universal for various combinations of sensors.
