Photonic produces highly specialised telescopic sights for combined use on modern infantry weapons. With high performance optical designs and tailor-made adaptations, based on environmental and operation conditions, the benefit for the user are improvements in situation- awareness and hit probability on all ranges of engagement.

Optical instruments for infantry and artillery applications

With solidly engineered technical solutions, developed with modern tools and under highest demands on quality and economical workflow, Photonic enjoys a solid reputation as a leading manufacturer of quality optic, optronic, opto-electronic and precise mechanics. As a member of the Austria WILD group of companies, Photonic offers cost effective and value-creating engineering and manufacturing capabilities for prototype manufacturing in small numbers and serial production in large quantities.

Telescopic sights

Photonic produces highly specialised telescopic sights for combined use on modern infantry weapons. With high performance optical designs and tailor-made adaptations, based on environmental and operation conditions, the benefit for the user are improvements in situation- awareness and hit probability at all ranges of engagement.

Night vision

Utilizing the latest light intensification technology a wide product range of night vision instruments for infantry applications have been developed and manufactured by Photonic. This product group includes observation instruments, sights with specialised reticules and mounting brackets for infantry weapon systems and also night vision adapters for the combined use with telescopic sights. Photonic night vision products incorporate high performance optical components and the latest image intensification technology.

Laser rangefinder

Photonic laser rangefinders are tailor-made solutions that utilize the latest diode-laser technology to measure distances and ranges integrated in new weapons, sights or mounting devices or to upgrade existing weapon systems. For infantry weapons with distinctive ballistic features the range is a most important data to guarantee improved hit probability. Using the latest diode-laser technology to measure distances, handheld or mounted, Photonic instruments can be integrated in new developed or mounted on existing weapon systems. Photonics’ modular fire-control system, a tailor- made technical solutions for man-portable anti-tank weapons, is already in operational service on battlefields worldwide.

Armoured vehicles

The long-time experience with optics and opto- electronics instruments for military applications enables PHOTONIC to offer a wide range of instrument like fire control systems for various weapon systems or operational assistance like night-vision driving. These instruments can be integrated in already existing control systems or can be operated independently by gunners, commanders or driver in military or special purpose vehicles. PHOTONIC is partner of international system manufactures to develop, produce and integrate optical systems for tanks, APC or other vehicles.

Mortar sights

For mid- to long range support weapons, like a mortar system, the operational value is linked with its accuracy. The Photonic products enables the user to operate their crew served direct- or indirect, weapon systems on the highest level of accuracy. The sights, customized for the use on 60,81 or 120mm mortar systems in combination with accurate and easy to use bore-sight equipment to maintain the precision also in the field are produced by Photonic.

Artillery sighting systems

In this product group all instruments belong to fire control systems to direct or indirect laying of heavy artillery weapons. These fire control systems combine different components to provide different tasks of the gun laying operation. According to costumers request these component characteristics are variable in respect to the used level of modern technology weight and stress load.

Bore sighting equipment

For every weapons system, from rifle to howitzer, the operational value is indivisible linked with its accuracy and the accuracy of its sighting system. Evan the simplest iron sight must be in-line with the projectile ballistic of the weapon. Reliable, field fit and easy to handle the products of Photonic are used to adjust sighting systems on weapon systems to enable
