Thermoteknix Systems unveiled its Ti-CAM 1000B bi-ocular multifunction targeting system at DSEI 2017 in London.
The TiCAM 1000B provides dismounts with day/night surveillance and observation capabilities and builds on the company’s earlier TiCAM 1000.
“Development of the TiCAM 1000B follows from a user requirement for a bi-ocular system format that helps to reduce eyestrain and fatigue sometimes experienced with monocular systems”, Alistair Brown Product Manager at Thermoteknix told Jane’s .
The TiCAM 1000B features the company’s own MicroCAM 3 uncooled LWIR thermal imager, using an amorphous silicon detector featuring a 640x480 array format with a 17 µm pixel pitch. The thermal imager provides x1 to x4 continuous zoom functionality.
The sensor configuration includes an eye safe (1550 nm) laser rangefinder (LRF) with a range of 3 km measured against a standard NATO target, and a laser target marker (LTM) operating at 650 nm (visible) or 850 nm detectable with night vision devices. The system also includes an integrated world magnetic model (WMM) digital magnetic compass, and integrated global positioning system (GPS).
TiCAM 1000B provides 12 hours of on board still image and video recording, and requires eight AA batteries or a 10-24 volt external supply. The system includes USB and RS-232 serial PC remote control interfaces used for integration with wider C4I systems and for real time data exchange.
The TiCAM 1000B is suitable for handheld or tripod-mounted operation and it is available with a choice of 60 mm, 75 mm, and 100 mm objective lenses to meet user requirements.
