January 28, 2015: The Indian Army is looking to procure Thermal Imaging Sights for its in-service 30 mm Automatic Grenade Launcher (AGL-17)/Automatic Grenade System (AGS-30) systems. Part of its expanded drive to fight night-blindness across equipment stocks in operations, the Army has stipulated, "The Thermal Imaging Sight desired by the Infantry should be a light weight and ruggedized device to enable accurate engagement of target by use of 30-mm Automatic Grenade Launcher (AGL-17)/Automatic Grenade System (AGS-30) at night / hours of darkness / poor visibility at an effective range of 1700 meters." Interested vendors have been called upon to specify the mount design and details of the Thermal Imaging Sight, the type of Reticle Pattern, the zeroing mechanism for the sight, whether the sight has been provided with Optical magnification or Digital zoom along with the corresponding Field of View, Detection, Recognition and Identification ranges varying from clear night conditions to pitch dark conditions and adverse weather conditions (specify adverse weather conditions) and also the interpretation of Detection, Recognition and Identification ranges in relation to the type of target. Also suggest methodology for field evaluation of the above stated parameters.
