Bumar Żołnierz S.A. is an innovative enterprise capable of implementing the most modern technological solutions and adapting them to the market situation and changing customer needs.

Bumar Żołnierz works closely with the Institute of Optoelectronics at the Military University of Technology in Warsaw. This cooperation has brought implementations such as fire control systems and thermovision products (including the CTS-1 Thermovision Sight). Other institutions with which Bumar Żołnierz collaborates include the Airforce Institute of Technology, the Military Institute of Armament Technology in Zielonka, and the Military Institute of Armor and Automotive Technology. Apart from military institutions, the company cooperates with civilian institutions as well. These include a space research center.

The company is experienced in the production of night vision devices for the Polish armed forces as well as special units supervised by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Administration and other governmental institutions. In its research and development endeavors, Bumar Żołnierz focuses on making progress in thermovision technology, proceeding from the belief that thermovision products, especially those based on uncooled detectors, will be used by soldiers in the near future. Standout designs include the CTS-2 Thermovision Sight and a prototype of the CTS-3 Thermovision Sight that was unveiled during the MSPO 2011 International Defense Industry Exhibition in the city of Kielce last year.

Bumar Żołnierz also offers products that combine thermovision and television technologies. Examples include the TTSWO-1 Thermal-Television Visualization System, which won the Defender Prize at the International Defense Industry Exhibition last year.

Work to combine these two technologies resulted in the development of integrated optoelectronic modules for armored vehicles. The company also continues work to develop observation devices that employ both thermal and night vision. One result of this work is the MU-3MT Monocular, a variant of the MU-3 Monocular with the ClipIR thermovision attachment.

Bumar Żołnierz also focuses on the implementation of new technologies connected with the production of aspherical optical components. It works to develop new thin layers for optical components. Research into aspherical optical components has been carried out as part of a project co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund under the Innovative Economy Operational Program since 2009.

In the years ahead, Bumar Żołnierz plans to focus on research and development as well as implementation work in the following areas: optoelectronic components for individual soldiers’ equipment, components for onboard fire control systems, and observation systems mounted on armored military vehicles. Research and development will also cover observation systems installed in engineering facilities and optoelectronic systems destined for avionics systems.
