The Safran Optics 1 STALKER is a lightweight, handheld, day/night target acquisition, surveillance, and reconnaissance device that is capable of locating targets even in adverse weather conditions. It is extremely lightweight and has an intuitive user-friendly interface. It is reliable in all weather conditions and allows operators unprecedented situational awareness for a variety of missions. It also has outstanding C4I (command, control, communication, computers, and intelligence) capabilities, along with multiple interfaces including RS-232 and USB for data exchange with other devices. It has three observation modes to detect targets: Direct View Day Optics, Low Light CMOS Optics, and LWIR Thermal Imager.
STALKER is a similar device to the Optics 1 MOSKITO TI, but has an integrated SAASM (Selective Availability Anti-Spoofing Module) GPS. It utilizes the unmatched L1/L2 antenna and uses a Class 1 eye-safe laser capable of ranging over 5,000m in harsh conditions and up to 10,000m in good condition environments. Stalker utilizes a lower power consuming digital magnetic compass to determine azimuth and inclination and has an operational run time of over 3.5hrs (dependent on mission profile).
