Thermal Imaging Scope
Thermal imaging technology operates by utilizing infrared sensors to detect temperature differences between targets in the environment. Thermal does not require any ambient light to function and works equally well during the day or night. Targets with higher heat signatures are displayed in bright yellow, orange, or red colors. Sensitivity is defined by the Noise Equivalent Temperature Difference (NETD) and degrees are measured in Millikelvin (mK). The lower number the better.
All PARD Thermal units are sensitive down to an industry leading 25mK.
Thermal technology improves target detection, while Night Vision technology improves identification.
Thermal technology does not function when looking through glass or a window.
