Finland purchases Raytheon's PhantomIRxr precision-targeting thermal bioculars

  • Lightweight, rugged device provides superior accuracy in the dark

The Finnish Defence Forces awarded Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) a contract to procure PhantomIRxr® thermal biocular systems. The biocular uses thermal imaging to pinpoint targets through darkness, smoke and dust. The bioculars will be on display at the International Defence Exhibition and Conference (IDEX).

Since 2011, Raytheon has supplied Finnish Defence Forces with multi-role thermal devices for missions that require close-combat imagery. The PhantomIRxr thermal biocular, with the latest thermal imaging technology, improves range and has advanced image processing algorithms and image stabilization to provide crisp, clear, stable images.
