NightEagleTM incorporates an infrared sensitive CMOS sensor that detects light not visible to the human eye. Depending on the strength of the IR illuminator, targets can be engaged and tracked out to 300 yards at night. As a shooter pulls the trigger the target is automatically acquired and tracked. When trigger pull completes, the target is instantly eliminated. Total Time-To-Kill (TTK) is approximately 2.5 seconds. RapidLokTM Fire Control is image stabilized enabling off-hand shots and shots on the run.
NightEagleTM records voice and video. As the shooter engages a target he can voice annotate the recorded video in real-time, creating a rich media experience of his engagement to be shared with friends and family.
When deployed with ShotGlassTM the shooter is completely unexposed. In effect the shooter becomes the predator with skills well beyond the skills of the prey. Wearing the digital glasses the shooter can see exactly what NightEagleTM is seeing without exposing their body or head. The scope view is projected into the shooters ShotGlassTM so shooters can acquire predators with virtually no exposure making the shooter undetectable by the predator. Shooters can engage from virtually any hidden position – over berms, over walls, and around corners with extremely high eradication rates.
