- IDEX attendees first to see the new cost-effective solution
Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) is showcasing a new, clip-on Thermal Weapon Sight (TWS) at the International Defence Exhibition and Conference, IDEX 2013. The surveillance and targeting sight, which mounts in front of a rifle's existing sight without reducing targeting accuracy, delivers precise surveillance and advanced targeting imagery.
"The clip-on TWS can also be used as a hand-held imager, and is an affordable, vital component for a wide range of military and border patrol missions," said Jeff Miller, vice president of Combat and Sensing Systems in Raytheon's Network Centric Systems business.
