Both sights are remarkably light weight and robust. The unique Mini-Hunter Compact Lightweight Night Vision Weapon Sight was developed and manufactured by Meprolight's sister company, Pulse Inteco Systems. Weighing less than 1 lb (<400 grams), this very easy-to-use sight offers a 2x magnification. Designed for durability, the sight can withstand the most challenging battlefield conditions. Exceptionally flexible, the Mini-Hunter can also be used for observation, and fits a variety of weapon types - including rifles, assault rifles, rocket launchers and machine guns. Powered by a single, standard "AA" battery, the unit can operate continuously for up to 40 hours.

Meprolight's NOA NYX uncooled thermal weapon sight with 2x magnification was developed in response to the critical need for precise target detection and engagement, even in conditions of dust, smoke, and total darkness. Weighing less than 2.2 Ibs (<1 Kg), the advanced NOA NYX uses high-resolution microbolometer technology to ensure clear and consistent results. The flexible unit can be used as a hand-held device or fitted to light machine guns, assault rifles, and submachine guns. Due to its light weight and long-range capability, it is also suitable for sharpshooter rifles with an x2 and x4 digital zoom. The sight can detect man-sized targets at up to 900m. Output can be fed to a remote screen or recording equipment via its "video out" feed. Storing up to 3 user-configured sighting reticules and requiring a warm-up time of less than 5 seconds, the NOA NYX can operate continuously for 7 hours using 4 "AA" batteries. The NOA NYX is the latest addition to the NOA family of sights that includes NOA x4, NOA x7, and NOA DUAL FIELD - which are all in use globally.

According to Benny Kokia, Director for Sales and Marketing at Meprolight, "The two sights that we are presenting for the first time in the US at Shot Show - from Meprolight and Pulse Inteco Systems - are the result of the implementation of customer requests for extremely lightweight sights that also have extensive capabilities. Both sights include features that make them especially suitable for Close Quarters Battle (CQB) - and are generating considerable interest among our customers around the world."
