Bertin Technologies, a CNIM Group company, announces that its PeriSight and FusionSight optronic solutions have been selected by the French ministry of defence to equip the combined forces shooting training centre (CETIA) in Canjuers, the largest shooting training centre in Western Europe.
As part of the renovation of Canjuers’ (Var, France) combined forces shooting training centre (CETIA), the French ministry of defence issued a call for tender for surveillance products to equip the centre’s five shooting ranges.
At the end of this call for tender, the ministry retained Bertin’s offer, based on PeriSight, a fixed 360 degree vision system and FusionSight, a night vision monocular with smart digital/ thermal fusion. Bertin will supply and install the surveillance equipment, maintain its operation and provide customer support for five years.
“The tender was for fixed equipment on the control tower of the shooting ranges and for nomadic equipment for master gunners. The setup was to ensure observation and monitoring during training,” said Damien Diaz, Operations Manager of Bertin’s Systems and Instrumentation business unit. “Our PeriSight and FusionSight products are perfectly suited to these scenarios because they help ensure the security of critical state sites and the protection of people and property, day and night, regardless of weather conditions”.
Indeed, FusionSight is the first handheld optronic device to offer smart fusion of thermal and visible colour images, allowing users to benefit from increased day and night vision, with the ability to save images in digital format. Patented, the colour/ thermal smart fusion mode promotes the understanding of all field situations.
