Sagem wins new order for JIM LR multifunction infrared binoculars for Denmark

The NATO Support Agency (NSPA) has awarded Sagem (Safran group) a new contract for 126 JIM LR (long range) multifunction infrared binoculars for the Danish Ministry of Defense.

JIM LR binoculars incorporate a number of features in a single portable optronics package, including day/night (infrared) vision, range finding, magnetic compass, GPS, laser pointer and data transmission. The models intended for Denmark will also include an infrared and visible image fusion function, enabling all-weather vision and the ability to see through camouflage in the daytime. They will also be able to record images and videos via a USB port.

The Danish armed forces are already users of Matis binoculars and JIM LR units and they previously chose the JIM LR based on the results of comparative tests. Field personnel emphasized its excellent detection, identification and target acquisition performance, coupled with light weight and an ergonomic design. With the acquisition of additional JIM LR, the Danish armed forces confirmed their trust in Sagem optronics equipment, being deployed as part of a modernization program for front-line troops.

JIM LR binoculars are already used by several NATO countries for infantry, artillery and intelligence units, special forces, support for front-line troops, border patrol and coastal protection. With this latest contract, there are now 5,000 JIM LR units in service or under order worldwide, including 2,000 in the French armed forces.
