Description: In operation the analysis of existing optical-electronic means of investigation based and working on various physical principles, and ways of their development is carried out. Possibilities of their usage for perfection of means of optical-electronic investigation of arms and military technology for the purpose of increase of its fighting possibilities and efficiency of usage are considered. The offered directions of development, perfection and upgrade of means of optical-electronic investigation of arms and military technology of units and divisions of National guard of Ukraine. Directions of development and upgrade of optical-electronic means of investigation for the purpose of increase of their fighting possibilities and efficiency of usage are defined. 1. Development of luminous, infrared, thermal channels of investigation of objects capable to work in difficult conditions. 2. Development of algorithms and programs; unification video signals of various sources of investigation; search, detection, recognition, attending and output targeting on the weapon for shooting; video information integrations about objects of investigation in management system the weapon. 3. Development and creation of new types of optical and optical-electronic investigation, for example, in an ultra-violet and X-ray range.
