MANCHESTER, NEW HAMPSHIRE (BNS): BAE Systems has received an $11.1 million order for the StalkIR, one of the highest performance and smallest clip-on thermal monoculars available.

The aerospace company is showcasing the system, also known as the Universal® Thermal Monocular, at the Defense Security Equipment International (DSEi) Exhibition in London, UK, according to the company news release.

"The StalkIR is both a surveillance tool and a weapon sight, and can be used in any situation where the warfighter needs to assess and engage threats," Vadim Plotsker, president of BAE Systems OASYS business in Manchester, New Hampshire, was quoted as saying in the release.

It has four times the resolution of the typical competitor system of similar size, he added.

The StalkIR can be used as a clip-on and thermal viewer device, as well as in handheld mode, and features dual band aiming lasers, a modular rail interface, and one-touch menu options.

The device provides warfighters with an effective surveillance tool to detect improvised explosive devises (IEDs) and other threats on the battlefield.
