Fraser Optics Observer overview

  • 1Description

The 14x40 Stedi-Eye Observer Stabilized Binoculars LE Edition with Pouch from Fraser-Volpe are an advanced electro-optical device designed for long-range observations from unstable viewing platforms on the ground, in the air, or at sea. Fraser-Volpe 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-Volpe 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 Observer includes an extended three-year manufacturer warranty as well as Fraser-Volpe's Advanced Lens Cleaning Kit for maintaining exposed lens surfaces.

The Observer 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. Whether in high-speed pursuit or conducting aerial and marine surveillance, the Observer'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°. All configurations of the Observer series are built to the same construction standards as Fraser-Volpe's military spec optics. The weatherproof/buoyant housing, fully multi-coated optics, and supplemental external power supply make the Observer a full-featured optic 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 the 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° of freedom.
Performance
The 14x 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 arcsecond resolution and an 8° scan rate ensure that the Observer 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.
Stedi-Eye Cam Compatible
This CCD recording device attaches to an ocular of any Stedi-Eye series binocular and transmits 512 x 492 video for remote monitoring or recording.
Law Enforcement Edition
This configuration of the Observer is only available to law enforcement agencies. Although the specifications of the Observer 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.
