Thales Launches the XTRAIM Day/Night Weapon Sight, A Technological Revolution for The Armed Forces

Issue 111 - December 2021

Thales has launched XTRAIM, a new weapon sight offering day/night decamouflage capabilities that previously could only be achieved by using several separate pieces of equipment. It is compatible with all shoulder-fired assault rifles (HK416) and light machine guns (Minimi), providing users with an unparalleled precision night-firing capability.

The XTRAIM sight provides a decisive operational advantage in conventional as well as asymmetric combat situations. The new sight weighs less than about 530 g (including battery) and is at least 70 mm shorter than alternative solutions. It is the dismounted combatant's perfect ally, reducing the burden on the soldier and improving their agility and endurance. XTRAIM is a fully integrated sight for daylight operations, combining a reflex red-dot sight with thermal imaging technology to pick out targets from the background (decamouflage function). The high brightness of the reticle in the red-dot sight makes it possible to identify and engage targets even in bright sunlight.
