L-3 Communications Infrared Products' compact thermal imager sees the heat emitted from objects, making it impossible for pursued subjects to hide between vehicles or stay elusive in the deep woods. The Thermal-Eye X-50 weighs only 13 ounces and stows easily in a pocket. Unlike traditional night vision technology, the X-50 is not affected by the bright lights, glare or shadows. The X-50 can detect human activity from more than 300 meters away in total darkness. Simple to operate, the X-50 can be used to great effect in fugitive pursuit, search & rescue, disturbed-surface assessment, target location, force protection and routine patrols. The camera offers variable display brightness and has a rugged design that will withstand a 6-foot drop onto concrete or underwater submersion up to 9 feet. Developed with advanced amorphous silicon microbolometer technology, the X-50 can operate for two hours using only two commercially available AA batteries.
