Despatch Thermal Processing Technology

The Universal Thermal Clip-On version XII with 12-micron technology is a brand new, more advanced thermal weapon sight from BAE Systems.

Not only does the new sight feature improved image quality, it is also smaller and lighter than current thermal weapon sights on the market.

According to BAE Systems, the company’s latest innovation is comparable to BAE’s 17-micron Universal Thermal Clip-On that is used by the U.S. military in support of long-range sniper and surveillance missions.

In fact, the new thermal sight with 12-micron technology can deftly switch from day vision to night vision for use in a wide range of environments.

“This 12-micron-based solution builds on our decades-long history of providing special operations and tactical customers with cutting-edge thermal imaging products,” said Marc Casseres, director of Imaging and Aiming at BAE Systems. “Our 12-micron technology, will allow users to detect, recognize, and defeat threats in all weather and visibility conditions, like never before.”

BAE Systems is planning on implementing 12-micron technology into all of the company’s future thermal imaging products.
