SCROME and Thales announce the commercial launch of CECILE-TS, a new family of thermal weapon sights for snipers and marksmen.
The CECILE-TS is the result of a close partnership between Thales and SCROME. As precise and easy to use as a conventional day weapon sight, CECILE-TS offers unequalled performance thanks to its latest-generation uncooled infrared sensors packed inside a lightweight, compact product with excellent ergonomics.
Drawing on Thales’s extensive experience in infrared night-vision cameras and SCROME’s expertise in optical and mechanical sights designed to remain combat operational under the most severe conditions (impact, extreme weather and climate, etc.), CECILE-TS is the most advanced thermal weapon sight on the market today.
“This new sight is an important addition to our range of precision-firing products. Moving into volume production under a long-term partnership with a group like Thales is excellent news for SCROME. It is hugely satisfying to see how an SME like ours can bring its specialist skills to bear and forge lasting ties with one of the world’s leading defence contractors. It also shows that companies like Thales are truly committed to developing the network of SMEs around them,” said Jean Soleille, SCROME’s Managing Director.
