|Sagem delivers first 150 JIM LR 2 multifunction infrared binoculars to French army.|
Sagem (Safran) has delivered the first 150 JIM LR 2 multifunction long-range infrared binoculars to the French army, in line with the original delivery schedule. This delivery was part of the JIR TTA NG (1) program, covering a total of 1,175 multifunction binoculars. The program contract was awarded by French defense procurement agency DGA to Sagem, as prime contractor, in December 2010.
Coupled to a new remote control terminal, JIM LR 2 provides a full-fledged optronic system for area surveillance, intelligence and support, whether used by dismounted troops or from a vehicle.
JIM LR 2 is a portable, compact unit, combining a number of advanced functions: day and night (thermal) vision, rangefinder, laser pointer, compass, GPS and data transmissions. It is fully compatible with Sagem's own FELIN integrated equipment system for dismounted soldiers.
