FLIR Introduces Series of Thermal Weapon Sights, ThermoSight Pro PTS
Tuesday, August 1, 2017
Invasive wildlife control specialists and tactical professionals understand the significant benefits of thermal imaging technology. Many have gone without this unique capability, however, because buying the best thermal imaging weapon sight is an expensive proposition.
At least it used to be.
Today, FLIR Outdoor and Tactical Systems (OTS) introduces the FLIR ThermoSight Pro Series weapon sights, a new level of performance, compact power and superior value to the sporting, law enforcement and tactical markets.
Powered by FLIR’s newest, compact, uncooled, high-performance 12-micron Boson™ thermal camera core, these next-generation thermal weapon sights set a new standard in thermal image quality, while offering a wealth of innovative and intuitive performance features. Best of all, the ThermoSight Pro models are available at a favorable retail prices below what consumers might expect to pay for other thermal targeting systems offering less performance and fewer features.
FLIR’s new Boson™ core is the brain behind the brawn of the new FLIR ThermoSight® Pro Series. The 12-micron, uncooled long wave camera enhances video analytics and image processing, enabling FLIR to create smaller, lighter optics with increased image performance and range. Featuring a 12 µm pixel pitch, industry-leading on-chip video processing, and an uncompressed video signal fed directly to a high definition 1280x960 display, ThermoSight® Pro offers superior detection and classification in the field, with brilliant, clean thermal imagery in any light – from low contrast daylight to total darkness – or through smoke, haze, light fog and rain.
Real Compact Power
Available in three models, each FLIR ThermoSight Pro offers 320x240 thermal resolution and packs greater levels of performance and functionality into a remarkably compact, nimble and lightweight housing. Extremely reliable, the new FLIR ThermoSight® Pro is the perfect addition to any hunting or security weapon platform, striking an ideal balance between size and performance. A robust aircraft-aluminum alloy body protects its powerful and compact hardware.
Register memorable moments with onboard video recording and image capture, while managing them with Bluetooth 4.0 and USB-C connectivity. Internal storage provides remarkable capacity: up to four hours of video or 1,000 still images. The initial offering in the series features patent-pending High-Visibility Technology (HVT), which displays iconology and graphic overlays crisply and clearly over all backgrounds.
