The Armasight by FLIR Prometheus is the latest and most technologically advanced Thermal Imaging monocular for the sporting, law enforcement, and military markets. The Armasight by FLIR Prometheus product line is based on the latest FLIR Tau 2 VOx microbolometer core and is available in a variety of models – each optimizing performance, price, and state-of-the-art technology for numerous uses and mission applications. The Armasight by FLIR Prometheus is a solid state, uncooled, long-wave infrared, magnified, dedicated handheld thermal imager intended for day and night engagements.

The 24/7 mission capability is only one of the strengths of Prometheus. The thermal imaging technology also allows you to detect targets by cutting through snow, dust, smoke, fog, haze, and other atmospheric obscurants. Unlike the use of laser targeting or near-infrared illumination to augment night vision equipment, the Prometheus thermal imager is extremely difficult to detect with other devices, as it emits no visible light or RF energy. The Prometheus can be controlled by a wireless remote control.

The Armasight by FLIR Prometheus can be used in conjunction with other equipment such as the Digital Video Recorder or Extended Battery Pack (both sold separately) that can be mounted onto the Prometheus' Picatinny/ Weaver rail. Extremely reliable and versatile, the Prometheus is a highly useful thermal imaging system.
