TACS-M easily attaches to existing Night Vision Devices (NVDs) to add additional capabilities. Low power consumtion, optimal sensor technology and high-performance optics integrate seamlessly to provide state-of-the-art long-wave infrared technology.

Since TACS-M mounts on currently-existing NVDs with a bracket, the clip-on technology allows increased capabilities without the need to refit helmets for special equipment. The miniaturized design causes the unit to be lightweight.

TACS-M consumes very little power and consequently can be used for extended periods of time. The unit’s waterproof and rugged construction can withstand the harshest environments.

STERNA provides true north capabilities 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, in virtually any environment, and works in virtually all weather conditions. STERNA operates independently and does not require the soldier to carry any support resources to directly determine true north.

Vectronix’ STERNA does not require GPS, celestial bodies, survey, or landmarks, and can operate in a magnetically charged environment; thus, greatly reducing the cost of replacement parts.

STERNA’s independent true north capabilities permit the soldier to operate in virtually all battle and hostile environments. STERNA systems are for precision missions, such as Laser Guided Bombs.

Depending on your mission profile several system configurations are available: STERNA-V, STERNA-M, STERNA-J.
