Envision Technology Introduces the Miniature Advanced Rangefinder System – Light (MARS-L)

Wednesday, January 5th, 2022

Envision Technology, LLC, manufacturers of state-of-the-art EO/IR technologies for the military, law enforcement and commercial markets, has introduced the newest addition to the Envision product portfolio, the Miniature Advanced Rangefinder System – Light (MARS-L).

MARS-L is a weapon-mounted laser rangefinder (LRF) which is purpose-built for the operational end user, with a heavy focus on Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) when compared to existing systems. The MARS-L achieves this while maintaining required capability attributes, such as a long-range eye safe (1550nm) LRF, visible pointer, on- board ballistic computer (Applied Ballistics), and a large OLED display to allow the user to navigate the simple and intuitive user interface.

The compact and lightweight design (< 7 ounces, which is unmatched in the industry), is feature-rich and minimizes impact on the host weapon system and operator load. MARS-L is capable of successfully ranging a man-sized target out to 1,500 meters and offers the user additional rangefinding modes for specific mission scenarios. The integrated Bluetooth module allows the user to interface with external devices such as a Kestrel weather meter and/or external displays.

“As an American manufacturer, and small business, we take pride in delivering innovative and top-quality products to meet the needs of our war fighters,” stated Envision President, Mark Belanger. “We are proud to provide these solutions to the men and women who continue to put themselves in harm’s way to protect our freedoms.”

Come see it in person during SHOT Show 2022 at the Maxim Defense Booth # 11668

Introducing KIJI Infrared Laser Illumination Tool from B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc.

Friday, November 12th, 2021

B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc., manufacturer of IZLID®, MAWL®, GLARE® , and BOARS®, brings you KIJI™: the most powerful, modular, VCSEL-based infrared laser illuminator commercially available. A Class 3R laser device, similar to the illuminator performance of the MAWL-DA, the KIJI™ K1-3° emits up to 150mw, and the KIJI™ K1-10° emits up to 350mw of flawless infrared laser illumination. Both models feature four programmable power levels and include beam diffuser options to quickly adjust beam power and divergence, ensuring the best irradiance on target for any situation.

As a modular infrared illuminator, KIJI supports a wide variety of use scenarios – from umbrella lighting interior structures, to punching out hundreds of meters on a SPR. KIJI is compatible and interchangeable with most common white light bodies and mounts, offering near endless versatility in handheld, helmet, weapon, vehicle, or aircraft mounted applications. This laser illuminator is designed to be used with user-preferred and existing aftermarket mounting hardware or remote switching options – making mounting and adoption as simple as using the parts and switching you already know and train with.

Programmability is a core component of KIJI with multiple intensity settings and mode combinations, all selectable by the user to ensure optimal performance at the touch of a button. Each model features four power levels and 32-modes of use, including:

• 4 Single power modes, one for each of the four output levels

• 22 Cycled modes for quick manipulation of two, three, and four output options

• 6 Toggled modes for deliberate switching between two output options

Combining the included 10° diffuser on KIJI K1-3° and the included 40° diffuser on KIJI K1-10°, KIJI provides users with flexibility in output, beam pattern, and mounting hardware. This makes KIJI is an extremely high-performing and low-cost laser illuminator capable of meeting any IR illumination scenario or platform requirements.

Overcoming photonic barriers in real world situations has never been as easy or as affordable: KIJI K1-3° and K1-10° are both available to the consumer market with an MSRP of $699.

Orders are released to resellers from B.E. Meyers & Co. the week of 15 November 2021.

Thyrm Introduces the LPC Clip

Friday, November 5th, 2021

Low-Profile Carry for Premium Flashlights
Sunnyvale, CA – Thyrm® changed the premium flashlight market in 2014 with the introduction of the SwitchBack®. Individuals could now pocket-carry most premium flashlights like Surefire and Streamlight with the SwitchBack’s pocket clip. The SwitchBack’s finger ring introduced a host of new features to the handheld light market including flashlight retention and the SwitchBack technique for use with handguns. Consumer demand for a low-profile flashlight carry clip spurred the design of the SwitchBack’s undercover cousin – introducing the LPC Clip™.

The LPC (Low Profile Carry) Clip offers deep carry of premium flashlights like Modlite Systems, Surefire Fury, 6P and G2X, Streamlight Protac HL/HL-X, and the soon-to-be-released Cloud Defensive handheld. This low ride height minimizes visual signature. Thyrm designed subtle control surfaces into the LPC to aid in secure deployments and various grip techniques. A lanyard hole fits 1/8” shock-cord and paracord.

Lanyard Not Included
As with all Thyrm products, LPC Clips are designed and made in the USA.
