Armasight—which was bought by FLIR last year—has rolled out its new Apollo Pro thermal clip-on weapon sights.
Available in five different models, the Armasight by FLIR Apollo Pro is promoted in the press release as being a rugged, solid-state, uncooled, long-wave infrared 1x clip-on thermal imaging device designed to mount in front of a variable-magnification day sight on precision rifles and tactical weapons. It can also function as a stand-alone thermal weapon sight, or as a handheld monocular with an integral compass and inclinometer.
Boasting FLIR TAU-2 technology, the Apollo Pro is offered in 336×256 and 640×512 pixel formats with professional-grade 50mm or 100mm Germanium objective lenses. The 640×512 pixel format features an electronic zoom function that increases from 1x to 2x to 4x and 8x without changing the point of aim.
All five Armasight by FLIR Apollo Pro models use a multi-pin connector to provide video-out/video-in capability, as well as an 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.
