FLIR Introduces FLIR ThermoSight® Pro Series Thermal Weapon Sights
FLIR Boson Camera Core Powers New Thermal Line with Advanced Image Processing
WILSONVILLE, Ore., August 1, 2017 – FLIR Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: FLIR) today announced three rifle-mounted thermal imaging sights as part of the new FLIR ThermoSight Pro Series. Powered by the high-performance 12-micron pixel pitch FLIR Boson™ thermal camera core, the ThermoSight Pro sights expand upon the FLIR ThermoSight line and sets a new standard in thermal image quality and features for the tactical and outdoor enthusiast markets.
The FLIR ThermoSight Pro Series is powered by the FLIR Boson thermal camera core, which delivers smaller, lighter optics with increased image performance and range. Featuring on-chip video processing and an uncompressed video signal fed directly to a high-definition 1280x960 display, the FLIR ThermoSight Pro Series offers improved object detection and classification in the field and clean thermal imagery in any light – from low contrast daylight to total darkness – or through smoke, haze and light fog.
Available in three configurations, the FLIR ThermoSight Pro Series packs greater levels of performance and functionality into a compact and lightweight housing. Each FLIR ThermoSight Pro offers 320x256 thermal resolution, Bluetooth 4.0 and USB-C connectivity, and user-controlled imaging palettes and image enhancement filters. Onboard recording allows for the internal storage of up to two hours of video or 1,000 JPEG images. All FLIR ThermoSight Pro models also feature a digital compass and inclinometer.
The initial offering in the series, the FLIR ThermoSight Pro PTS233, features a reticle pattern using patent-pending High-Visibility Technology (HVT), which displays crisp iconology and graphic overlays over virtually all backgrounds.
FLIR ThermoSight Pro PTS233 – 19-millimeter (mm) lens, 4X digital zoom and 12-degree field-of-view
FLIR ThermoSight Pro PTS533 – 50 mm lens, 4X digital zoom and 4.5-degree field-of-view
FLIR ThermoSight Pro PTS733 – 75 mm lens, 4X digital zoom and 3-degree field-of-view
“The FLIR ThermoSight Pro Series provides feature-rich functionality to offer the sporting, law enforcement and tactical markets a weapon sight with superior thermal imaging technology,” says Dmitry Rocklin, Vice President of FLIR Outdoor and Tactical Systems. “This new Boson-based thermal weapon sight series represents the most advanced recreational scope line for FLIR, setting the bar for size, weight, power, and performance.”
The FLIR ThermoSight Pro PTS233 is available now in the U.S. at $2,199 MSRP through established FLIR dealers. The FLIR ThermoSight Pro PTS533 and FLIR ThermoSight Pro PTS733 will be available later this year. For more information about the ThermoSight Pro series, visit flir.com/TSPRO.
