Artillery Electronic Goniometer

electronic goniometer

UPAOS is an optoelectronic device used for general observation and positional awareness. It provides the user with positional data for both himself and his chosen target, using a built in laser rangefinder, personal GPS and a digital compass.

The device is equipped with a daytime camera and a thermal camera in order to ensure complete day/night usability. The unit is designed to perform under harsh environmental conditions, defined by military standards.
