The highly acclaimed and rugged NOPTICTM thermal imaging camera manufactured by Autoliv is a compact, low priced, high resolution surveillance tool. The device's unique spotlight mounting location (patent pending), provides a product that the officer is very familiar with for quick and easy use. The camera is designed to be perfectly aligned with the spotlight which allows for the timely and tactical use of the spotlight. Unlike hand-held devices that spend most of their time in the trunk, or back at the office, the NOPTIC is always on and ready for continual night vision surveillance. The NOPTIC utilizes passive infrared technology for its 320 x 240 pixel image, so it won't be blinded by any lights. It also has a built-in lens heater that automatically activates at temperatures below +40F to keep the lens clear of frost.
