Thermal Rifle Scopes
Detect targets through snow, dust, smoke, fog, haze, and other atmospheric obscurants. The Predator is a solid state, uncooled, long-wave infrared, magnified dedicated weapon scope intended for day and night engagements without the need to remove the sight from the rifle. But 24/7 mission capability is just one of its many strengths.

With its superior price-to-performance ratio, Predator thermal Imaging weapon sights are well suited to the sporting, law enforcement, and military markets. Based on the FLIR Tau 2 VOx microbolometer core, each Predator model optimizes performance, price, and state-of-the-art technology for a variety of uses and mission applications ranging from the seriously committed hunter to the designated marksman. While primarily designed as a weapon scope, the Predator functions equally well in its collateral assignments as a magnified spotting scope or handheld thermal imager.
The Predator is a solid state, uncooled, long-wave infrared, magnified dedicated weapon scope intended for day and night engagements without the need to remove the sight from the rifle. The 24/7 mission capability is just one of its many strengths. Thermal imaging technology also allows you to detect targets by cutting through snow, dust, smoke, fog, haze, and other atmospheric obscurants. Unlike the use of laser targeting or near-infrared illumination to augment Night Vision equipment, the Predator thermal imaging weapon sight is extremely difficult to detect with other devices, as it emits no visible light or RF energy.
In addition to their compact size and light weight, Predator thermal imaging weapon sights are characterized by their simple and intuitive controls, functions, and features that are layered among direct button adjustments, direct combination button functions, and electronic menu selections. This “layering” of easy-to-understand control functions provides the operator with a framework for customizing his preferences and exploiting the robust variety of setting options available in the Predator.
The Predator has a series of selectable color modes based on a rich, upgradeable software package. A wireless remote switch is included to activate the Predator thermal imaging weapon sight when positioned in the “standby” mode. The Predator has the ability to record videos with an optional Digital Video Recorder and is also equipped with a video-out capability in operator selectable NTSC or PAL formats. The Predator uses the same multi-pin connector to provide video-in imagery, where there is a need for map display overlay and external power access.
Predator weapon installation is easy, repeatable, and reliable based on a unique and highly user-friendly MIL-STD-1913/ Weaver/Picatinny rail compatible, quick-release locking mechanism. The solid state technology and software algorithms, combined with a complementary color reticle platform, ensures maximum reticle contrast, high level target accuracy, and boresight retention that cannot be achieved with mechanical boresight adjusters and traditional ballistic drums. This level of accuracy is translated into the electronic zoom (e-zoom) function of the Predator, which can be progressively increased from 1x to 2x, 4x and 8x, without changing the point-of-aim to point of-impact relationship of the targeting reticle.
Special User-Adjustable Imaging Tools
Active Contrast Enhancement (ACE).A digital “contrast” correction that allows for a smart scene optimization based on dynamic adjustments where a variety of contrast levels occur depending on relative scene temperature.
Second Generation Digital Detail Enhancement (DDE).A “sharpness” correction that digitally enhances the picture to present clearer imagery, significantly improves edge sharpening, and further reduces image noise.
Smart Scene Optimization (SSO).A fine-tuning computational correction that significantly improves overall visual acuity for targets that have thermal signatures similar to a surrounding background.
Automatic Gain Control (AGC).A “gain” correction used to automatically adjust the gain to an appropriate range. The weaker the image signal, the stronger the gain.
User-Controlled Manual Non-Uniformity Correction/Flat-Field Correction (UCMNUC/FFC).There is a mechanical shutter between the camera sensor and the lens. This shutter is used to perform a non-uniformity correction (NUC) also known as flat-field correction (FFC). During FFC, the shutter presents a uniform temperature source to each detector element in the array. While imaging the flat-field source, the camera updates the offset correction coefficients, resulting in a more uniform image after the process is complete. All Predator models allow for user to manually trigger or interrupt scheduled UCMNUC/FFC function.
Silent Shutterless NUC™ (SSN).In addition to user controlled manual NUC/FFC, all Predator models employ a digital supplemental non-mechanical flat-field correction that allows the user to extend the periods between mechanical shutter events and to further reduce image noise. SSN is always ON enhancement.
