Spot the difference [DSEI17D2]

13 September 2017

Among an array of high-performance electrooptical devices by Canada-based Newcon Optik (Stand N4-156) at DSEI this week is the new Spotter range of combined spotting scope/laser rangefinder systems.

The first of their kind, Spotter LRF and Spotter LRF Pro combine 15-45x optics and a long-distance laser rangefinder into a single MIL-SPEC package. ‘‘Our users always demand equipment that is multifunctional yet compact, cost-efficient and reliable,’’ said executive VP and chief operating officer Alex Rudiy.

Also at the stand is the newly released LRB 6K, a sleek, compact and high-performance 7x42 laser rangefinder with a 6,000m (NATO target) measuring range, a built-in digital magnetic compass, an inclinometer, and a GPS receiver. It can be operated remotely, have its stored data exported and communicate with external GPS systems and ballistic computers. In combination, these features make the LRB 6K an indispensable tool for military, Special Forces, and other professional operators.

Last year, Newcon Optik introduced the Seeker M and Seeker S mountable laser rangefinders designed to boresight with practically any optical system. Given their versatility, this series is becoming a favourite for long‑range engagements.
