Or Akiva, Israel — Meprolight - a leading manufacturer of Laser Range Finder systems, electro-optical systems, thermal and night vision equipment for military, law enforcement and civil applications - introduces for the first time at Eurosatory 2014, the new MEPRO LRF 20-70 - a compact, very fast, Erbium Glass Technology-based Laser Range Finder with a range of 20,000 meters and a repetition rate of 1 pps and 3 pps in burst mode.  The Company will also display the MEPRO LRF 15-02 - a new LRF configuration with an APD receiver that enables a significant extension of the range up to 10,000 meters, while still remaining lightweight and compact and keeping the same size. These systems are designed for a wide range of land, sea, and airborne applications. In addition, the Company will also present a new configuration of the STING - single pulse, cable-independent, Dual Wavelength Laser Pointer.

Meprolight provides a variety of Eye-Safe LRF solutions for various applications, including tactical devices, RCWS (Remote Control Weapon Stations), and observation systems.

Among the LRF solutions that Meprolight will display are the MEPRO LRF 15-02 and the MEPRO LRF 20-70. The Company also provides customized LRF solutions.

MEPRO LRF 15-02 SERIES –Compact Eye-Safe Laser Range Finder
The MEPRO LRF 15-02 is an open frame, sealed or self-tactical Eye-safe system. Its compact, lightweight design makes it ideal for integration into handheld devices, multi-sensor platforms, and fire control systems, or mounted on RCWS, manually operated weapon stations and machine guns.

MEPRO LRF 20-70 – High Repetition Long Range Eye-Safe Laser Range Finder
Designed for the measurement and tracking of fast-moving targets, the MEPRO LRF 20-70 is available in two configurations - open or sealed, enabling  integration on any electro- optical system. The open frame system is designed mainly for stabilized, electro-optical payloads. The sealed version is integrated into any multi-sensor platforms.

In addition to the LRFs, Meprolight will also introduce the new configuration of the MEPRO STING – Dual Wavelength Laser Pointer. This is a considerably lighter weight laser pointer system weighing less than 220 gr. It emits both an infrared and red laser beam projecting a dot on the target - saving time and ammunition. It can work independently with or without a PTL cable connector, so that the cable does not restrict its operation. Operated by an internal electronic system, the MEPRO STING delivers shooting capabilities without the need to look through the rifle’s sight.

Among the other types of solutions to be displayed is the MEPRO MESLAS. This is a compact, lightweight, programmable, multi-function, fire-controlled sniper's riflescope 10x40 system that incorporates a single-pulse laser range finder operating in an eye-safe spectral range (invisible to night vision devices), a sniper’s telescope, and a fire-control computer. When measuring distance, it automatically calculates the elevation angle according to the ranged target accurate adjustability. The robust system withstands all environmental conditions as well as shocks and vibrations, and offers optional measurements of temperature, humidity, and axis angle sensor for ballistic calculations.

According to Benny Kokia, VP Marketing and Sales at Meprolight, "We are pleased to present a wide range of Meprolight's solutions at Eurosatory 2014, and to enable visitors to personally view the LRF systems that are being introduced for the first time at the exhibition. These solutions are the result of thorough R&D, in order to meet the needs of users for lighter weight and faster systems enabling a greater operating range, during both day and night."
