Thermal Imaging

Thermal Imaging Optical devices are powerful optical tools combining a thermographic camera with a set of optics. A thermographic camera (also called an infrared camera or thermal imaging camera) is a device that forms an image using infrared radiation, similar to a common camera that forms an image using visible light. Instead of the 400–700 nanometer range of the visible light camera, infrared cameras operate in wavelengths as long as 14,000 nm (14 µm). Their use is called thermography.

Thermal Imaging Devices include thermal riflescopes, binoculars, goggles, hand held monoculars and cameras, vehicle mount cameras and other similar optics  Unlike the regular night vision technology, thermal monoculars display images based on their temperature signature.   This makes them much more capable then night vision.  Another advantage of thermal imaging is the lack of sensativity to bright light.

There are a few key Manufacturers when it comes to thermal imaging. 

Pulsar: a very popular brand for digital night vision and thermal imaging.  Key products include Pulsar Trail and Thermion thermal scopes and Pulsar Helion and  Accolade thermal monoculars, binoculars.

GSCI, Newcon, and Alpha Optics which are produce and supply civilian applications based on commercial quality. 

ATN: produce such well knows devies as ThOR-HD thermal scope, BINOX-THD thermal binoculars, and OTS-HD thermal monocular.  

FLIR/Armasight: the largest maker of consumer level thermal products is well knows for their full product line.  Zeus thermal scopes, Q14 and Scout monoculars, Helios and Scout binoculars and many more.
