KINETIC DEVELOPMENT GROUP
The KDG Optics Hub is a lightweight, rugged aluminum housing for your favorite spotting scope. Unlike other products on the market, the Optics Hub works with a wide array of different spotting scopes from popular manufacturers. It is designed to allow the user to select and connect other accessories to the outside of the unit. Laser range finders, mini-red dot sights and laser target designators can be co-aligned to match the center focal point of an etched spotting scope reticle. This allows the spotter to acquire a target faster, properly identify it and start collecting data all in one fluid motion. Additionally, all of this can be accomplished without drastically breaking your field of view or looking away from the Optics Hub to retrieve other shooting accessories.
With (22) individual M-LOK slots, and (14) 1/4-inch-20 standard camera-sized threaded inserts, the Optics Hub can be set up into unlimited configurations. Nearly all small to mid-size spotting scopes can be easily set up with a red dot optic to get on target quickly, without the need to zoom out magnification to locate the target that caught your interest. When used with an AN/PSQ-23A STORM, Wilcox RAPTAR or Silencerco Radius range finder, the spotter can immediately range the target after positive identification and track range changes in real-time if the target is moving. The addition of a small weather station will allow for environmental changes to be monitored consistently while observing. Ballistic corrections and DOPE can be viewed via smart phones or PDAs attached to the sides of the unit. When it is time for the Spotter to move, the entire suite can be quickly placed into a pack. The underside of the Optics Hub offers additional mounting points for different sized camera shoes or mounts and also for fine tuning the placement of the spotting scope in the housing. The Optics Hub features two rifle-style quick detach (QD) swivel sockets for tethers or slings. For the military spotter, the Optics Hub works perfectly with the issue Leupold Mk4 12-40x60mm M151 Spotting scope. The MIL-SPEC hard anodized earth brown finish provides an excellent base to paint custom camo patterns over for Snipers and Recce teams. KDG plans to grow the Optics Hub line, with the addition of adjustable night vision mounts and rear-mounted DSLR camera adapters. kineticdg.com

NYX—Dedicated Night Vision Binocular
NYX is a cutting edge, full MIL-SPEC, image intensified, dual tube binocular that is able to be operated helmet-mounted, head-mounted or hand-held. It offers better depth perception than single tube systems making it easier to judge distances and relative motion so the ability to perform tasks such as driving is greatly improved. NYX is the ideal choice for special operations forces.
NYX includes an integrated infrared illuminator, reducing the need for the warfighter to carry a separate illuminator. Image intensifiers enable soldiers to operate in low- and no-light combat scenarios more effectively than ever before and can easily be replaced at the unit level.
For momentary configuration changes, the user can flip away each monocular separately. With both monoculars flipped away and flipped up, the system stows along the contour of the helmet thus reducing its silhouette and neck strain, minimizing the danger of system damage.
NYX features self-contained single AA battery power and can be also operated via a remote battery pack at the rear of the helmet for increased operational life. theon.com

Through its modularity the user can freely decide on the actual system configuration (monocular-, binocular-, weapon-mounted) depending on the mission profile and user preferences.
Argus Panoptes as a dual channel, dual tube system offers better depth perception than single tube systems, making it easier to judge distances and relative motion and allowing the user to perform tasks such as vehicle driving or other demanding applications. Both versions (LW and FS) can be offered with or without Manual Gain Control (MGC). theon.com
