The light-weight Mobile Observation System will improve the unit's range of vision
The Field Intelligence Corps recently acquired the cutting-edge Mobile Observation System (MOS), which will be used by the Corps' Target Intelligence Unit. The new, light-weight system will give soldiers a range of vision of dozens of kilometers.
"If in the past we had night equipment, day equipment, GPS, and a recording system – carrying all of which required two or three soldiers – the MOS incorporates all of these, and one soldier can carry it alone," explained Maj. Nadav Peretz, outgoing head of the Target Intelligence Unit, adding that the new system boasts increased capabilities and quality as compared to its predecessors.
In the coming months, all of the reserve soldiers of the Field Intelligence unit are due to work with the new system. "We are now in the process of distributing and integrating the MOS. In this period, the battalions are receiving the MOSs, and the MOS is at the Field Intelligence Academy and the Field Intelligence Branch of the Ground Forces Training Center," explained Maj. Peretz.
The soldiers in the field are satisfied with the advanced equipment. "It fulfills the necessary achievements for which it was built. We are still in the period of improvements, changes, and upgrades, but the system itself is an excellent tool," he said.
