Miniature Gun Camera and Thermal Sight Integrate Into Low-Profile System

Newington, NH, June 25, 2008 --( Wilcox Industries Weapon Video Display (WVD) is a sighting system that uses an LCD display connected to an OASYS Mini- Modular Thermal Sight and incorporates a left/right miniature camera that allows the operator to view potential threats and obstacles around corners without having to reveal himself.

The durable 3.5 inch LCD display is made to pivot 180 degrees vertically and horizontally and features a 2X digital zoom that allows the operator to engage targets up to 300 yards away. The display is easily adjusted but once positioned will stay put during weapon fire or normal handling. The crosshairs can be boresighted to the weapon allowing the operator to use the display image saving valuable time over obtaining the image through a scope.

A choice of crosshairs, intensities, and colors as well as the option of white hot/black hot, are all controlled by a remote control pad when used with a compatible OASYS thermal sight. A simple press of a button on the display switches between the thermal camera and the left/right view camera and battery life is extended by just closing and opening the display. When moved from light to dark the display automatically brightens.

Power for the WVD is supplied by Wilcox’s Quick Change™ Standard Power Supply Module that holds two 123A lithium batteries that provides 2.5 hours of operation.

The WVD is quickly attached to the weapons MIL-STD-1913 rail with a LaRue Tactical mount and features a low profile stance and a black matte finish. The display and control pad are easily operated with one hand and can be attached to either the right or left side of the weapon. The system is constructed of a lightweight aerospace-grade metal. Pricing and ordering information for the WVD is available by calling Wilcox Industries at 603-431-1331.
