MUTANT — smart thermal sighting system for observation, detection, recognition, identification, and aiming of unsheltered, camouflaged or partially concealed behind a barrier target, terrain navigation, searching, reconnaissance and target designation at any time of a day and night in various weather conditions.

MUTANT — multitask system, functional and operational capabilities combine six separate devices:

  • Thermal observation and reconnaissance device;
  • Thermal robotized sight system;
  • High-selective laser rangefinder;
  • Automated ballistic calculator;
  • Meteorological station;
  • Navigation device.

MUTANT is a modern hi-tech element base of the electronic unit and advanced functional capabilities in one compact device. Thermal imaging sensor, laser rangefinder, meteorological station, Linux OS based computer, ballistic calculator, GPS module, 3-axis gyro sensor, G- meter, electronic compass, interfaces of remote control, communications and data transfer are integrated into minimal size and weight shockproof and waterproof aluminum-magnesium alloy case.

Mutant is easy-handling multifunctional device, by using of which the entire process from preparation to the shot is completely automated. Sensitive thermal sensor can automatically detect camouflaged target at any time of the day and laser rangefinder can measure distance in the most adverse weather conditions: snow, rain, fog, dust-storm, high humidity or heat. Ballistic calculator can automatically replace reticle considering the range, elevation angle, atmospheric pressure, temperature, humidity, ballistic characteristics of ammunition, wind speed and direction.   All that remains to be done by you is to combine center of the aiming mark with target and pull the trigger.

MUTANT is a multifunctional device designed for civil or military purposes corresponds the most strict standards. Ability to detect thermal targets in the most adverse weather conditions as fog, dust storms, hurricanes and snow storms provides to use MUTANT in search and rescue operations, restoration works after natural disasters, in special military and elite force operations.

Easy handling, universality and multitasking, all that makes MUTANT at the forefront among existing devices with similar functions.
