BAE Systems provides thermal weapon sights for Canada

Defence products provider Rheinmetall Canada will integrate BAE Systems’ uncooled thermal weapon sights with the 40mm grenade launcher’s fire control system as part of the Canadian Army’s Close Area Suppression Weapon System (CASW).

BAE Systems’ thermal sights will enhance weapon functionality and mission effectiveness by allowing for targeting independent of darkness and common battlefield obscurants.

The defence, security and aerospace systems developer has operated in Canada since 2000.

BAE Systems produces light, medium, and heavy thermal weapon sights using the company’s MicroIR uncooled infrared sensor technology to generate superior infrared imagery without the need for bulky, power-consuming cryogenic cooling equipment.
