Stabilised independent panoramic sight for armoured vehicles

Orion provides the armoured vehicle commander with a stabilised panoramic sight for long-range surveillance and target identification, independent of turret orientation. Stabilisation enables on-the-move surveillance and weapon engagement and a wide area surveillance (WAS) mode provides a rapid overview of the surroundings. Enhancement options include automated target detection, tracking, and a laser target designator.
