Kent Periscopes, the North Wales, UK based international supplier of unity vision periscopes, vehicle sights and related equipment for military armoured fighting vehicles, will be exhibiting a wide range of products on stand N8-251 at the Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEi) show in London, 12-15 September 2017.
New from Kent at DSEi will be the Straight Biocular Display. Comprising of the latest display screen and lens arrangement, the Biocular Viewer gives excellent relaxed viewing for Armoured Fighting Vehicle drivers. The display can be supplied in isolation or as part of the Kent Embedded Image Periscope (EIP) System.
The Unity Vision Periscopes (UVP), including the Kent derivatives of the M17 and M27 Periscopes will also be on display. Whilst Kent have a large range of off the shelf UVP’s, their experienced design team are able to design bespoke solutions for both turret and vehicle applications that can be discussed with the representatives at the event. Kent will be actively promoting the SABRE Thermal Image Gunner/Commander Sight, attractive to several potential upgrade programmes around the world with a working version on display on the stand. As well, the SABRE Narrow Gunners Sight, a derivative of the SABRE family of sights, having been designed as a compact, low cost reversionary Sight with a Day-Only channel, will be there to see. This sight still allows the gunner to accurately aim the weapon if the main turret sighting system has failed or if electrical power to the turret is lost. Finally, Kent will have two functioning examples of their Embedded Image Periscope System on display, one with both a TI and Day CCD sensor pack and one with a SWIR Sensor, that latter being demonstrated for the first time at DSEi.
Kent Periscopes’ sighting and observation solutions are sought out by some of the world’s best armoured vehicle manufacturers, procurers, maintainers and users. Kent’s product and service capabilities include unity vision periscopes, an innovative range of Embedded Image Periscopes (EIPs), the popular and flexible range of Sabre Gunner/Commander sights, the Passive Driver’s Periscope (PDP), Vision Blocks and a range of other related equipment and services for armoured fighting vehicles. Kent also have a dedicated spares and repairs facility with the ability to refurbish periscopes and legacy sighting systems.
