Observation Systems


STERNA family - all STERNA Precision Target Location Systems (PTLS) are based on Vectronix` new and unrestricted north-finding capability providing very precise target coordinates, even in magnetically charged or GPS-denied settings meeting the requirements of multiple mission scenarios. ​STERNA`s extreme lightweight design – with a total system weight starting at below 4 kg - makes it the first true man-portable solution of its kind. Depending on the mission profile, users can select today from 4 mission-ready STERNA system solutions providing independent north finding, eye-safe long distance laser range finding, brilliant day view optics plus the required night view capabilities. STERNA PTLS seamlessly integrates the performances of the well-known observation products PLRF25, VECTOR, MOSKITO, MOSKITO TI and JIM LR (LRTV). All 5 system configurations are in production stage, ready for orders and deliveries. The targeting advantage of STERNA PTLS over other solutions reduces collateral damage while achieving a high first-round / fire-for-effect accuracy. STERNA PTLS are designed to accomplish around-the-clock missions, totally independent, under worst weather and environmental conditions. The flexibility of STERNA PTLS allows for a perfect match with the requirements of today’s Close Air Support, Forward Observer, Forward Air Controller or Joint Tactical Air Controller.
