Thermal imaging clip-on to provide fusion to night vision devices
ClipIR is an innovative miniature infrared thermal imager which delivers fused thermal (IR) and intensified imaging when fitted to almost any existing monocular, bi-ocular or binocular night vision devices. Fusion systems combine unparalleled detection capabilities of thermal imaging with the superior identification abilities of image intensification to equip the user with enhanced situational awareness, particularly in low/no light environments.
The real-time thermal image is injected into the objective lens of the night vision device to deliver fusion or separate display of both sensors. The fused combination of thermal and night vision provides superior tactical advantages compared to standard night vision or thermal imaging alone, adding the detection of a man target at distances up to 340m.
ClipIR utilises Thermoteknix patented shutterless XTi technology for exceptional thermal image quality and silent operation without any moving parts.
XTi technology provides the ClipIR with 50Hz framerate at ultra-low latency which avoids user fatigue or motion effects, a rapid start-up time to image, and does not require the thermal camera non-uniformity calibration prior to or during use regardless of ambient temperature or operating hours – a requirement present in competitor products.
ClipIR provides a 40° field of view that matches the full field of view of most night vision devices, crucial in close combat situations and on patrol when situational awareness on either side of the wearer’s direct vision is essential for threat detection.
All ClipIR functions are controlled using its unique, multifunction scroll wheel.
Capable of operation when mounted on either side of the night vision goggle, and operated in all environments with or without gloves, the ClipIR is intuitive with minimum training burden. Multiple thermal fusion modes are available including Full Thermal, Outline, Contour and Pulse modes.
Weighing less than 150g (including battery), ClipIR is powered by one single AA battery to provide up to 4 hours of continuous operation and low through life cost.
ClipIR is attached to existing night vision devices using the supplied mounting bracket. ClipIR is compatible with NiCAM-14, NiCAM-7, NiCAM-31, PVS-15, PVS-18, PVS-23, PVS-24, VV Lite, MUM-14, Kestrel, XACT, NYX, NX-122, MINIMUS, F5050, F5032, BNVD, UNS-SR, MINIMON, and others.
ClipIR is not available for sale or use in USA.
ENHANCED SITUATIONAL AWARENESS
ClipIR provides a 40 degree Field of View for enhanced situational awareness, crucial in close combat situations and on patrol when situational awareness is essential.
ClipIR can be fitted on most in-service night vision devices and offers backward compatibility with the supplied mounting bracket.
The ClipIR 'quick view eyepiece' accessory enables the unit to be used on its own as a miniature handheld thermal imager.
