For the first time, thermal imaging is no longer a privilege reserved for Naval warships or Police helicopters. In the Scout TS Series, FLIR puts this technology into the hands of the law-enforcement and security professional for the first time.
The FLIR Scout is a rugged handheld thermal imaging camera. It gives law enforcement officers, security patrols and any other person that needs to see at night without being seen himself, the information needed to make critical decisions, enhance mission effectiveness, maximise operational capabilities and improve safety.
An asset to anyone performing covert operations, nocturnal patrolling or rescue, acute observation no longer needs to be restricted to daylight hours. The Scout thermal imaging camera produces a crisp image in the darkest of nights, through mist, fog, smoke, dust and even foliage.
The device sees clearly in total darkness. It makes images from heat, not light, a feat impossible for the human eye or even image-intensified night vision devices. People, animals, and all objects - even ice - make their own heat and their own contrast, so are clearly seen by the Scout camera, even in the most adverse conditions.
