The primary sight consists of a thermal imager to identify targets and has a wide area search and detect (WASAD) capability that automatically detects and tracks potential targets.
The secondary sight includes a high-definition colour TV camera for daylight use, as well as a long-range day optical channel to detect, identify and accurately engage targets at extended ranges.
Both sights will be integrated with a Sensor Processor Unit to enable the vehicle’s turret to quickly track the target while on the move, providing an unexcelled hunter-killer capability to the vehicle.
Lockheed Martin UK, the Scout SV turret subcontractor, will integrate the sights onto the turret for the Scout SV programme.
The Scout reconnaissance vehicle is a key variant in the British Army’s SV fleet and will serve alongside other SV variants including protected mobility, repair and recovery vehicles.
