The 10x40 Stedi-Eye Aviator Stabilized Binocular from Fraser Optics is an advanced electro-optical device designed for long-range observations from unstable viewing platforms on the ground, in the air, or at sea. Fraser Optics has developed electro-optics for the US Military since 1972 and is an industry leader in the production of next generation optical stabilization. Their rigorous and high-minded approach to designing, prototyping, and manufacturing world-class products has earned Fraser Optics a reputation in both industrial and defense markets. Stedi-Eye series optics are manufactured in the United States and are designed to withstand long-term use in demanding weather conditions. This Law Enforcement configuration of the Aviator includes an extended three-year manufacturer warranty as well as Fraser-Volpe's Advanced Lens Cleaning Kit for maintaining exposed lens surfaces.

The Aviator uses gyro stabilization technology to correct up to 98% of image motion caused by hand tremor and platform motion. This technology is especially useful for law enforcement personnel and first responders observing from a marine vessel, moving vehicle, or helicopter. When in high-speed pursuit or conducting aerial and marine surveillance, the Mariner's stabilized viewing platform can be the difference between mission success and failure. As the optical housing pitches and/or rolls, the gyro mechanism compensates for the motion by mechanically orienting the prisms in the opposite direction. This process of stabilization occurs in real time and corrects motion on the pitch and roll axes within 8 degrees. All configurations of the Aviator series are built to the same construction standards as Fraser-Volpe's military spec optics. The weatherproof/buoyant housing, fully multicoated optics, and supplemental external power supply make the Aviator a full-featured binocular for first responders and tactical professionals.


This item is only available to US Military and law enforcement agencies

Gyro Stabilization
Gyro Stabilization technology uses angular momentum generated by a gyro to compensate for movement of the optical housing. When the optical housing moves in one direction, the gyro mechanism moves in the opposite direction and reorients prisms to stabilize the viewed image. This stabilization technique happens in real time, as opposed to electronic stabilization, and corrects up to 98% of pitch and roll motion within 8 degrees of freedom.
The 10x magnification is well suited for long-range viewing in the air, at sea, and on land. Gyro stabilization ensures that transmitted images will remain steady despite the hand tremor commonly visible through high magnification optics. A 4.3 arc second resolution and an 8 degree scan rate ensure that the Aviator is ready to handle a wide range of law enforcement applications.
Anti-Reflective Coated Optics
Fraser-Volpe's proprietary compound optical coatings minimize unwanted reflections and maximize light transmission through the optical channels, resulting in enhanced image brightness and contrast.
Law Enforcement Edition
This configuration of the Aviator is only available to law enforcement agencies. Although the specifications of the Aviator are identical to non-Law Enforcement Editions, this model includes an extended three-year manufacturer warranty and Fraser-Volpe's Advanced Lens Cleaning Kit for maintaining exposed lens surfaces.
