Optoelectronic measurement technologies for applied solutions

NOPTEL focuses on three optoelectronic measurement technologies in order to develop its solutions.

These include fast distance measurement based on laser pulse travel time for near field dynamic application, cumulative distance measurement, based on laser pulse travel time for long-distance measurements and position and moion measurement for light beam position detection.

Optical shooting training device to measure rifle movement

The Noptel Expert is an optical shooting training device for shooting skills training. It is used indoors with scaled-down targets and simulated shooting distances, or at shooting range with life-size targets and longer shooting distances.

The device measures rifle movement, detects the shot, shows the location of both the hit and miss, and analyses the shooter’s performance. It’s software shows the rifle movement during the aiming and triggering, and the score right after the shot.

Noptel Expert is fully portable, allowing for training to take place anywhere and at any time. It is also ready to use in minutes, and can mount to most rifles, making it very versatile.

The fevice also has immediate shot analysis and feedback, due to its specialise software. It has wireless operation, rugged contruction and can be used for indoor or outdoor use.

Safety is also ensured by the Expert, and it can be used for training at simulated or long distances.

Laser rangefinders for airborne, land, maritime, and naval systems

The compact, eye safe and highly integrated laser rangefinders can be used as OEM products in different applications.

These include airborne, land, maritime and naval systems, vehicle-mounted reconnaissance systems, observation and surveillance systems, handheld targeting systems, and future soldier program equipment, as well as fire control systems, mobile range finding, and location measurement.

Noptel rangefinders can be delivered as open modules or in nitrogen-filled, watertight casings, enabling flawless operation under harsh environmental conditions. The robust hand-held devices measure distances beyond 10 km.
