Elop CORAL(click to view full) Elbit Systems Electro-Optics Elop Ltd. (“Elop”) announces several contracts valued at about $50 million to supply its hand-held CORAL Thermal Imaging night vision systems to the Canadian Forces, Israel’s IDF, and “additional customers worldwide.” Elop’s CORAL systems [PDF brochure] are compact and lightweight (less than 2.5 kg/ 5.5 pounds) thermal imaging viewers that are carried by an infantry soldier on a neck-strap. They can be used to view targets at night at tactical ranges, either from fixed positions or while in motion. The systems are also optimized for low energy consumption, which is important to already-overloaded infantry soldiers who would otherwise have to carry the additional batteries.
