JIM Compact features very light weight (less than 2 kilos, including the battery), long range and advanced battlefield connectivity, to meet users’ most demanding requirements, especially size, weight and power (SWaP), as well as run-time. Because of its intuitive ergonomic design, low-light sensor, cooled infrared and daytime sensors already used on the original JIM LR long-range binoculars, and pointer and laser designator displays (See-Spot), JIM Compact delivers the best performance/weight ratio on the market.

Safran Electronics & Defense’s JIM Compact capitalizes on the very successful JIM family of multifunction infrared binoculars, nearly 10,000 of which are already in service or on order in some 40 countries.
