Abstract : A brief summary of the state-of-the-art antitank guided missile systems (ATGMs), their target acquisition system and guidance have been presented. Historical developments of thermal imagers used in such weapons systems have been outlined, bringing out their limitations and technological bottlenecks. Status of an indigenously designed and developed state-of-the-art thermal sighting system for antitank missile system which has given excellent performance in terms of range and picture quality, is discussed in details. An overview of the emerging and futuristic trends in imaging technologies has also been covered.
