BAE Systems OASYS Secures Deal To Supply USSOCOM With SkeeterIR®

 BAE Systems announced yesterday , April 11, 2012, that it has been awarded an $11 million contract to provide USSOCOM with its mini weapon mountable IR monocular,  SkeeterIR®.

The SkeeterIR uses a Wilcox interface so it can be mounted to the helmet or any other system supporting that mounting interface; this includes cantilever mounts very much like those available from LaRue. The operator then simply rotates the SkeeterIR in or out of his line of sight as the operation dictates.

The SkeeterIR displays a true 320 x 240 resolution and is configurable with dual band pointing lasers 835nm (IR) or 650nm (Visible Red). Additionally, the SkeeterIR can function as a dedicated weapon sight with selectable reticles. The unit runs on a single 123A battery that delivers 3 hours of run time.
