Armasight by FLIR

WILSONVILLE, OR (May 17, 2017) FLIR Outdoor and Tactical Systems (OTS) is a global leader in the manufacture and supply of thermal-imaging weapon sights to the sporting, law enforcement and tactical markets. Its best-selling Armasight by FLIR Zeus Pro family of thermal weapon sights showcases advancements in uncooled thermal imaging technology for the dismounted soldier, special law enforcement team member, invasive species control specialist or predator hunter.

Utilizing FLIR’s field-proven TAU-2 Technology, the Zeus Pro is offered in 336×256, or 640×512 pixel formats. These options are further enhanced by professional military-grade 50mm or 100mm Germanium (Ge) objective lenses and a wide variety of optical magnifications and range performance capabilities. Eight distinct models are available.

The Armasight by FLIR Zeus Pro Thermal Weapon Sight is characterized by simple and intuitive controls, functions and features. To better support the art of shooting, Zeus Pro models feature ballistic reticles, an electronic compass and an inclinometer for finer range estimation and target orientation.

Armasight by FLIR Zeus Pro uses a multi-pin connector to provide video-out/video-in capability, as well as external power supply and support of accessories. An optional laser range finder, external battery pack, multispectral laser and other accessories designed to attach via the MIL-STD-1913 rail of the Zeus Pro are available.

Ballistic reticle adjustments, image enhancement algorithms and complementary color reticles ensure maximum reticle contrast, high-level target accuracy, and boresight retention. This level of accuracy is translated into the tracking electronic zoom (e-zoom) function of the Armasight by FLIR Zeus Pro, which can be progressively increased from 1x to 2x to 4x to 8x without changing the point-of aim-to-point-of-impact relationship of the targeting reticle.

The included five-button wireless remote allows users to operate and modify settings of the Armasight by FLIR Zeus Pro without removing hands from the weapon, while Bluetooth© interfaces with the ballistics and control application running on the user’s smartphone.

Proudly made in the USA, the Armasight by FLIR Zeus Pro Thermal Weapon Sight represents FLIR’s most versatile and sophisticated line of targeting products available for the consumer market. No matter the mission, Zeus Pro offers unrivaled vision.
