In day or night conditions, in rain, for or smog, Cat Eye delivers the best visibility, said Sofexi.

The portable observation camera restitutes the eye's natural vision (clear, sharp, realistic image) enabling facial identification up to 200 m at night and vehicle recognition at distances of over 8 km.

Precise, mobile and stand-alone, it has just one single Unique Optical Channel (full HD) that it uses regardless of the observation mode (day, Low Light Level, night, associated to a unique active imaging technology, to ensure night vision. An excellent image quality that can record in their reconnaissance and surveillance missions.

The Cat Eye benefits from a dual mode of Active Imagery. Via a common laser source, the camera operator opts for either a permanent lightning mode (illuminated mode) or active gated mode. This active gated mode guarantees the selection of a dedicated spatial range (more or less 15 meters). This mode ensures facial identification of a human being, distant from 150 meters in the midst of night.

OLED technology for the screen, 4-hour battery life or external power from Li-Ion batteries (military class), collection of essential information (compass, telemetrics, dating, etc.), all these technical characteristics are adapted to the missions and interventions of law and order forces, special forces and military personnel.
