Scout Handheld Thermal Camera, 320x240 detector and 60mm lens. Pro model upgrade has still and video recording capability.
Resolution: 320 x 240
Range: 1,400 Yards
The TS32r Pro thermal monocular features a resolution of 320 x 240, with a maximum range of 1400 yards. The TS32r Pro is a dedicated long range camera and monocular combo built on a compact frame.
The TS32r Pro uses a fixed 65mm lens to extend its possible reach well beyond the traditional TS32. It includes the ability to capture and record both video and still imagery onto a removeable SD card that will store jpeg and mp4 files.
Built on FLIR's dedicated thermal chassis, the TS32r Pro will run all night off 4 rechargeable AA batteries that can be changed in the field. The display itself auto-focusses, but a diopter adjustment on the eyepiece ensures you get the sharpest image for your eyes. This monocular also uses an iris style eyecup to control light emissions from the screen.
This long-range monocular can use different polarities to fit varying situations and environments. White-hot and black-hot displays are the FLIR military standard, but you also get 4 levels of Instalert™ polarity, which will isolate heat signatures above a certain threshold and highlight them a bright red.
The TS32r Pro can be tripod mounted for long distance viewing, and features a 2x digital zoom. When you're trying to maximize your detection range: the 2x magnification makes it easy to pick out even the smallest hot-spot.
FLIR thermal night vision uses infrared radiation to build its image, which means it sees heat not light.
This means that thermal night vision highlights temperature differences in the scene its interpreting. That makes FLIR the pinnacle of detection. When it comes to spotting the odd part out in a scene, even in total darkness, thermal differentiates like no other technology.
Because it's seeking out temperature differences and heat signatures, FLIR cameras can be just as useful in daylight as they are at night. In low contrast environments, heat will still be a differentiator regardless of any camouflage. This also works at long distances where your eye may not pickup a distant object. A FLIR camera will highlight that far off heat signature, even if it's just a cluster of pixels different.
Reading infrared radiation also means that these units are not blocked by the kind of things that might interfere with our vision. Particulate obstacles like smoke, dust, and fog have a much smaller thermal signature, and so the FLIR camera can see right through them. Even snow and rain to an extent will have less of an effect through thermals than they would on your naked eye.
The range of thermal night vision is determined by the resolution of the detector and the size of the lens. These sample images of a man and a vehicle at different distances demonstrate the difference between Identification and Detection through a TS32r Pro.
