Gunner sight CRANE SR1G, XSR and SR

Crane XSR

The CRANE is a multi-sensor electro-optical container developed for integration into Remotely controlled Weapon Stations (RWS).

Combination of the sensors inside the container ensures the capability of the system to see in all weather and light conditions. There are three types of sensors – day/night vision and LRF. Day vision is provided by a combination of day and zoom camera with colour and B/W mode for type SR1G and for type XSR is provided by a zoom camera with colour and B/W mode. For both types night vision is provided by an uncooled thermal camera. Range measurements are performed by an eye safe laser range finder.

The body of the container is ruggedized against vibrations and resistant to all weather conditions. The advantage of the container is its relatively small size. Its dimension is designed to be universal for various combinations of sensors.

Commander sight CMS-1

CMS-1

CMS-1 is a multi-sensor electro-optical system developed as a commander sight. All optical sensors are mounted on a gyro-stabilized pan and tilt positioner, allowing a commander to have a clear view on surrounding terrain.
