At the core of the RBS 70 NG is the new generation sight module. The combination of features in the sighting system means that the RBS 70 NG can pick up all targets, day and night. With its integrated high resolution thermal imager and night sight capability, it can be used around the clock, for true 24/7 operation.

Three dimensional target designation and automatic target detection improves reaction times. The auto-tracker aids the operator during engagement, increasing hit probability throughout the missile range. All RBS 70 NG automatic functions can be manually overridden at any time. The system also has improved coarse aiming indicators.

The interface graphics are custom definable. They are menu-based and there is an optional login procedure available. The RBS 70 NG's new ILS Concept is based on the Maintenance Support Computer (MSC), a rugged portable PC with dedicated OBELISK software. Key features include version control, logging, test and fault finding, software download and configuration & calibration.

The NG sight has been specifically designed for a high degree of flexibility and modularity: in addition to the Man-Portable Air Defence System (MANPADS) configuration, the same NG sight unit can be used in remote-controlled or vehicle applications.

The RBS 70 NG reduces training time on the engagement procedures to a few hours using a dedicated classroom trainer. The classroom training simulator incorporates operator drills to perform training of all necessary skills such as target acquisition and identification, target tracking, weapon launch and guidance.

Outdoor training is performed with the system, which is supported by a recording function for After-Action Review.
