|P&R INFARED RELEASES THE FLIR THERMOSIGHT 70 TO LAW ENFORCEMENT|
P&R Infrared is pleased to announce that the FLIR ThermoSight T70, which was selected for the USSOCOM Special Operations Peculiar MODification (SOPMOD), is now being released to the law enforcement community.
The T70 is an in-line, clip-on thermal weapon sight that utilizes a proven 640x480, 17µm detector and is effective on all weapons from carbines to .50 cal semi-automatic and bolt action sniper rifles. Its long-wave infrared imagery is optimized for day scope magnification between 1x and 8x. It provides crisp imagery daylight through total darkness, fog, smoke, dust, and most obscurants.
The low profile design minimizes height above rail, reducing snag hazards and interference with other devices while allowing operators to keep positive control of the weapon’s aimpoint while adjusting the sight. FLIR's proprietary Shock Mitigation System(tm) maximizes system life and reduces recoil by 10x, even when used on high-shock weapons. Rugged, small, and lightweight, the T70 uses either AA or CR123 batteries, which can be hot swapped in any orientation.
A mini-joystick placed at the operator’s thumb when supporting the weapon under the handguard or at a user selected location via a wired remote control pad allows operators to control the sight and adjust the IR image without changing their hand positions. The T70 ThermoSight is also compatible with any MIL-SRD-1913 Picatinny rail system.
