We are very proud to announce that our subsidiary – Thermal Beacon Ltd. was recently awarded a contract to supply a large quantity of MS-OMR beacons to one of our European customers.
The company will supply the latest version of the Thermal Beacon, the MS-OMR II C (Multi-Spectral, Omni, Medium Range). The Thermal-Beacon is an innovative and unique infrared emitter that radiates in the thermal spectrum and does not emit radiation in the visible or near-infrared region. It is used as an identification device in the thermal spectrum region, for use with military vehicles, yachts, police SWAT teams, SAR, emergency services and mountain rescue teams. The unique mechanical design allows the user to install the system in many different configurations. The product is further designed to be mounted on vehicles and helmets, thus distinguishing itself from enemy forces in combat environments.
Recent tests reveal that the MS-OMR II C system is able to identify targets from an altitude of 18 km. This provides an additional and necessary layer of protection in operational environments by avoiding identification errors. The small and compact devices are inconspicuous and limit interference with the users’ activities.
The latest contract represents the company’s market expansion efforts alongside the growing demand for Thermal Beacon’s innovative product line.
