The IR HUNTER MARK II, much like its predecessor the IR HUNTER, is designed and built to be the perfect dedicated thermal weapon sight. At the same time, it can be used in various other applications, including as a clip-on sight, in a tactical system, and alone as a handheld imager.
Unlike the IR HUNTER, the MARK II, is powered by the new BAE Systems MicroIR thermal core, which uses the latest 12 micron sensors to provide a 50% increase in magnification in a compact, military grade package. The new sensors also draw less power, which helps extend battery life.
Resolution is a crisp 640×480, and the state-of-the-art processor passes a fully digital RGB signal with a smooth 60 Hz frame rate to the Emagin VGA 640×480 OLED display. This ensures a perfect pixel-for-pixel match with the sensor, providing a perfectly clear and sharp image with no upsizing or downsizing needed. Competing systems often cut costs by using analog displays.
The processing power of the IR HUNTER MARK II generates detailed reticles and symbols with MOA accuracy that are easy on the eyes, even after hours of viewing. Simply sight in and quickly make the ballistic corrections the shot demands! Adding to the ease of use and accuracy, the MARK II employs turret knobs instead of buttons. Using this thermal sight is as familiar as using your day sight!
The highly desired and patented LaRue LT681 QD Mount is standard. This mount is 100% made in the USA and proven in combat. Dual throw levers for even greater accuracy and reliability are available as an option. The system also works as a clip-on out of the box, with no accessory required for a selection of 1x, 1–4x, and 1–6x day optics (ask for approved optics list).
The IR HUNTER MARK II is available in two models:
The IR HUNTER MARK II is American built by IR Defense Corporation to MIL-SPEC standards and is highly dependent on U.S. sourced parts and components. It has a three year warranty and comes in a complete kit (see below).
Higher resolution shows more detail, so we use a state-of-the-art 640×480 sensor and pass the fully digital RGB signal to a 640×480 OLED display, maintaining a crisp 1:1 pixel ratio.
Digital electronic zooming lets you achieve various magnifications quickly and with the advanced built-in sighting system, the reticle will maintain boresight and even increase its MOA accuracy.
(ezoom inline image)
Digitally generated, MOA calibrated reticles work like first focal plane reticles. As you use the digital zoom, the image size increases along with the reticle, maintaining a 1:1 pixel ratio to the display for a sharp, clear image at all times. Optional multiple colors (GREEN, RED, and AUTO).
DFC — Digital Focus Control
DFC lets you focus your image to an optimum setting and sharpen the overall picture.
MaxPol Polarity Control
Easily switch between three levels of White Hot and three levels of Black Hot, giving you much better viewing control than typical single level systems.
ETR — Enhanced Target Recognition
Corrects a problem with thermal sights when viewing a scene with the sky or horizon in the background. The cold sky causes gain and contrast settings in the sensor to wash out the image. With ETR enabled, gain and contrast are limited to the image area within a yellow target box.
A wide range of 10 color palettes lets you display temperature differences in varying colors. This lets you pick a color palette that makes certain objects pop out at you.
The objective front lens assembly uses only the best materials available. The AR coated germanium lens is also DLC hard carbon coated, thermally stabilized (athermalized), and shock resistant. The entire assembly is engineered for high environmental durability and includes a replaceable, highly transmissive IR window in front of the lens for protection.
MOA Accuracy Turret Knobs
Your day sight has them, so the IR HUNTER MARK II uses turret knobs, too. When you’re out there in the dark and under pressure, you’ll know how to operate your thermal sight with just as much ease and familiarity as your day sight.
