Tactical Advantage in the Palm of Your Hand - FLIR LSX/R | FLIR Systems


Handheld Thermal Night Vision Monocular

The FLIR LS-X and LS-XR handheld thermal night vision monoculars are built specifically for those who serve and protect. This powerful, yet simple imager gives Law Enforcement an unfair advantage whether searching for evidence or pursuing a suspect, all in the palm of your hand. The newest additions to this field-proven line, LS-X and the LS-XR, feature enhanced resolution displays, extended zoom capabilities, and video output. Whatever you are searching for, find it with FLIR.


Its improved eyepiece display takes full advantage of the high resolution thermal imager inside, its 5x magnification, and InstAlert hot object highlighting.


This easy to use thermal monocular starts in sections and has intuitive controls that make single-handed use a breeze, even with gloves on.


Packing a lot into a little design -- like video output and a red laser pointer -- these thermal monoculars still fit easily into pockets, packs, or the included Molle pouch.
