FLIR LS Thermal Monocular

Price: $2,599.00 — $3,599.00

Now every officer can be armed with advanced thermal imaging to see what can’t be seen with traditional night vision scopes. The FLIR LS compact thermal imaging monocular provides all of the benefits of full resolution thermal imaging (better image quality, more image detail, and better range performance) for less than half the price of technically comparable cameras. If you thought earlier thermal imagers were too costly or didn’t like the image quality, a FLIR LS thermal imaging monocular is what you’ve been waiting for!

Flashlights only illuminate a small area, plus they give away your position. Thermal imaging lets you see clearly in total darkness while staying covert. Click for more images and videos.

FLIR LS Compact Thermal Imaging Monocular

Image intensified night vision scopes can’t help you see things that are camouflaged or that have low visible contrast. Thermal imaging doesn’t saddle you with any of these limitations. Click for more images and videos.

Features & Benefits

  • On stakeout or in pursuit, detect suspects up to 1,000 yards out. The state-of-the-art, extremely sensitive sensor delivers superior imaging in total darkness and in adverse conditions day or night (e.g., through dust, smoke, light fog, and foliage).
  • Choose between the LS-X with a 336×256 VOx microbolometer or the LS-XR with a 640×512 VOx microbolometer for excellent, high-fidelity thermal imagery that provides the detail necessary for improved detection and recognition range. Both sensors can detect less than 1° F of difference in temperature, which is 3x more sensitive than competing systems.
  • The LS-X thermal imaging monocular comes with a 19mm lens, 17° field of view, and 2x e-zoom. The LS-XR thermal imaging monocular comes with the 35mm lens, 18° field of view (for greater standoff viewing capability), and 4x e-zoom. Both models feature automatic image optimization with FLIR’s proprietary Digital Detail Enhancement.
  • Compact, extremely lightweight tactical design employs both covert coloring and full silent operation. At 12.9 ounces and under 7 inches long, the FLIR LS is easier to handle than your baton!
  • Intuitive camera operation includes an integrated laser to quickly and safely pinpoint suspects in the dark. Select zoom, palette, and laser features with one finger, even with gloves on. No menus to deal with! Instant on (from standby).
  • Advanced embedded battery technology extends operation to over 5 hours on a single charge. Recharges through provided USB cable.
  • Rugged, hardened, submersible (IP-67) construction.
  • Comes with 2 year warranty. Warranty extended to 3 years if registration card is returned. Detector warranted for 10 years.
