In Britain a DRS Technologies 320 x 240 VOx detector has been incorporated into an uncooled Thermal Imaging Module by Thales Optronics Canada and adopted as a drop in replacement on the Raven sight on the British Army's Warrior repair and recovery vehicles as part of the BGTI (Battle Group Thermal Imaging) Group 2 fit on 94 vehicles, supplied by Thales Optronics.
The BGTI is designed to give the vehicle crew 24-hour all-round surveillance and a weapon-pointing capability for the 30 mm Rarden cannon.
Other BGTI features are a new commander's crew station with direct vision optics, a gyro-based navigation subsystem linked to the commander's display, plus a driver's display showing waypoint data.
