The US Army received the 100,000th MicroIR uncooled thermal imager from BAE Systems to be installed in the common remotely operated weapon station (CROWS II) of the army.

With thermal imagers, soldiers can detect heat from people or vehicles and identify targets, while remaining secure inside their vehicles.

In production since 1996, the imagers are used on soldier thermal weapon sights, combat vehicle thermal imagers, and thermal cameras used by firefighters.

The MicroIR devices operate in darkness, and in smoke, fog and other poor visibility conditions, and are smaller and more energy efficient than other simialr devices as they do not require constant cooling to maintain thermal sensitivity.
