Meprolight (1990) Ltd., a member of the SK Group (founded by Mr. Samy Katsav), specializes in manufacturing electro-optical systems, thermal and night vision equipment, as well as self-illuminated sights for military, law enforcement and civilian applications. The company has recently completed development of the advanced MIL-STD Mepro TIGON sight. The system integrates the advantages of uncooled thermal imaging technology with those of see-through day optics (“red-dot” sights) in a single product, enabling complete operational flexibility, day and night.

Users in the defense, law enforcement, and HLS sectors can all benefit from the advanced features of the TIGON in one cost-effective solution. The integrated technology enables operational flexibility for mission success in open terrain, CQB scenarios, densely vegetated areas - such as jungles - and more. Being compact and lightweight, it reduces weapon-load, improves weapon balance, and simplifies operations compared with similar non-integrated solutions.

For day use, the Mepro TIGON’s large transparent display window and clearly visible reticle enable rapid target acquisition, with both eyes open. At night, the thermal image projected onto the same display effectively supports spotting and engaging targets in complete darkness and harsh environment conditions, including smoke and dust. To increase the effective day range of the sight, a tactical magnifier can be fitted behind it, while the digital ×2 zoom of its thermal channel may be employed at night.

Additional features and advantages of the TIGON sight include:

  • A high-accuracy zeroing system;

  • A wide FOV in both day and thermal modes;

  • A light sensor for seamless auto-adjustment of day reticle brightness;

  • A long operating time consisting of thousands of hours in day mode, and more than five continuous hours in thermal mode;

  • A power-saving mechanism for maximum energy efficiency, without compromising reticle availability;

  • Power supplied by two commercial AA batteries;

  • Connectivity enabled through a video-out interface for external monitors and communications systems;

  • A quick-release, high-durability Picatinny rail (MIL-STD-1913) mount.

The system is already in the process of being evaluated by the IDF and introduced to select forces around the world.
