Photonis Defense participates in AEWE Event at Ft. Benning

Friday, 28.02.2020

Photonis Defense’s Digital Vision technologies are being used by US and foreign soldiers during the Force-on-Force phase of the Army Expeditionary Warrior Experiments (AEWE), going on now at Fort Benning, GA.

AEWE are annual, invitation-only testing & evaluation events where new products and technologies are put in the hands of soldiers to determine if they can satisfy current and future Army requirements. The Force-on-Force events are scenarios designed to simulate realistic tactical conditions during squad through company-level operations such as patrolling, attack & defend, and search & rescue.

Photonis Defense was invited to participate with Digital Vision products featuring Nocturn imaging sensors. The CMOS Night Observation Device (CNOD), built-in partnership with Rochester Precision Optics (RPO), and the SR750 system, built-in partnership with SYT Technologies, provide high-quality day and night digital imaging. The CNOD can be used as a handheld monocular, stand-alone weapon sight, or clip-on in front of another day optic. The SR750 is a portable long-range observation system that can be operated by a wireless hand controller with a built-in display or by computer via an ethernet connection.

The key benefits of these systems are their versatility and portability for use by individual soldiers to obtain high-resolution imagery with a single device while operating in full sunlight to starlight conditions. A digital output is more easily networked than legacy analog imagery.

In preparation for the Force-on-Force events, Photonis Defense Digital Vision specialists conducted New Equipment Training (NET) for the soldiers tasked to employ these systems during the experiment. They will continue to provide on-site support until the AEWE concludes in mid-March.
