Scout works best after dark

Under the cover of darkness, FLIR – a leading manufacturer of thermal imaging cameras – has unveiled a small, handheld camera that allows us to at last ‘see’ in the dark.

FLIR Scout PS-Series cameras can spot a man-size object at 320m in total darkness – no lights, no moonlight, no night vision goggles. Even longer distances – up to 450m – are obtainable with other models in the FLIR Scout range.

Imagine being able to spot Australia’s many nocturnal animals, which have remained “invisible” to most of us until now. Or being able to locate lost or injured stock or missing people while moving through the bush at night.

FLIR Scout will change forever the way we view the great outdoors by extending our enjoyment from dusk to dawn.

The Scout PS-Series fits easily into the palm of your hand.

Its simple operation makes it an ideal choice for sportsmen, hikers, farmers, park rangers, or naturalists.

Like all FLIR thermal cameras, the Scout creates crisp, clear images from heat, not light. With the revolutionary FLIR Scout, at last man is on the same footing as many of the animals when it comes to night vision.

Weighing just 340g, the FLIR Scout is compact, robust and simple to use.

Features include:

  • Small and lightweight – Just 340g and 17.2cm long
     
  • Powerful imagery – Choice of two resolutions (240x180 & 320x240) with optional 2 X e-zoom and freeze frame
     
  • Three selectable display palettes – White Hot, Black Hot and the powerful Instalert detection palette provides excellent image detail in a variety of environments
     
  • Easy to use – Intuitive 3-button operation, embedded LED task light, rechargeable Li-Ion internal battery, standard tri-pod mount
