Embedded Image Periscope and Sighting Systems
Embedded Image Periscopes (EIPs) provide classic direct view periscope vision, combined with the ability to display digital images from sensors and cameras located on the vehicle directly into the original periscope window.
The EIP products offered by Kent Periscopes consist typically of a standard periscope upper assembly and a compact lower assembly which holds a display, and an optional relaxed view biocular - allowing the user to select a direct view or a digital view without moving the head position or swapping out periscopes.
They each offer a versatile solution for AFV drivers, enabling quick and intuitive switching between direct view and digital imagery from sensors and cameras on the vehicle, giving a comprehensive image of the mission ahead through battlefield obscurants, during the day and at night. But they are equally relevant to other positions in the vehicle, where constraints exist. An EIP eliminates the need for separate displays or alternative “swap in” night-vision solutions.
All of our EIPs are designed to be modular and can therefore be configured for both new vehicle requirements and as a direct replacement for current in-service solutions - with minimal, if any, vehicle modification.
• A “standalone” and “leave alone” day and night solution
• Ability to display images from existing cameras and sensors on the vehicle
• Eliminates the need for additional monitors within the crew compartment
• Reduced logistic and through life support cost
• Ergonomically designed to minimize head movement
• Reduced training burden
We are the leading exponent of this innovative type of solution, and our experience in continuous improvement has taught us that different circumstances call for different solutions.
