12 micron, uncooled, thermal camera core, FLIR Boson, as core When FLIR Systems announced the acquisition of Armasight in June 2016, and approx. seven months later, through FLIR’s all-new Boson-cored tactical and outdoor thermal-imaging products; the unified portfolio and development resources became a clear win for tactical professionals. At the FLIR Outdoor and Tactical Systems (OTS) booths (#248 and #6203) at this week’s SHOT Show FLIR OTS’s suite of Armasight- and FLIR-branded sighting and optic products are headlined by four new lines of tactical and outdoor thermal products featuring FLIR’s newest compact, 12 micron, uncooled, thermal camera core, FLIR Boson. These Boson-based imagers deliver great performance and functionality for tactical and outdoor users. Whether for long standoff range on a stakeout, or compact systems for covert surveillance, FLIR’s new Helios Thermal Bi-Ocular or versatile Q14 Thermal Monocular ensure the user has the best vision in the area of operations. They can be used to locate, view and monitor suspects through smoke, haze, fog or total darkness, helping complete the mission, and get a team home safely.
