NYXUS BIRD
Reconnaissance = Observation + Measurement

NYXUS BIRD is a multifunctional, handheld optronic observation system for reconnaissance and target acquisition at day and nighttime. It combines a powerful thermal imager and glass optics with a laser rangefinder, magnetic compass and GPS.

Day and Night Vision

The compact observation device combines an uncooled high resolution thermal infrared camera for night vision and multiple coated glass optics with 7x magnification.

Target Measurement

The integrated eyesafe diode laser rangefinder operates at a wavelength of 1550 nanometers within a maximum range of 5,000 meters. In combination with DMC and GPS it warrants exact target localization.

Scope of Application

• Surveillance & reconnaisance
• Observation & target acquisition
• For infantry, special forces and police

Features

• Small, lightweight and handy
• Multi-functionality combined in one compact device
• No acoustic detection
• Night vision in absolute darkness
• Vision also through smoke and fog
• Short startup time
• Long autonomous battery operation time
• detection and measurement of targets
at large distances
