You can't control the environment. But you can control the way you view the environment. With the Armasight® Prometheus 640 1-8x25 (30 Hz) Thermal Imaging Monocular, you'll see targets regardless of the environmental conditions. If it emits heat, you'll detect it. And, unlike laser designators or near-infrared illumination, the Prometheus thermal imager is extremely difficult to detect, as it emits no visible light or RF energy. Perfect for nighttime hog hunts, security patrols and military ops.
Based on the latest FLIR Tau 2 VOx microbolometer core, the Prometheus is the lightest, most compact thermal monocular in its class, offering 24/7 mission capability, fast start-up, easy, intuitive operation and a host of color palette and user-adjustable imaging tools.
A step up from the Prometheus 336, the Prometheus 640 is equipped with a sharper, 640 x 512 pixel array format, 1x, 2x, 4x and 8x digital zoom, larger field of view and longer battery life.
Special User-Adjustable Imaging Tools
Active Contrast Enhancement (ACE) - a digital "Contrast" correction that allows for a smart scene optimization based on dynamic adjustments where a variety of contrast levels occur depending on relative scene temperature.
Second Generation Digital Detail Enhancement (DDE) - a "Sharpness" correction that is digitally enhances the picture to present clearer imagery, significantly improves edge sharpening and further reduces image noise.
Smart Scene Optimization (SSO) - a fine-tuning computational correction that significantly improves an overall visual acuity for targets that have thermal signatures similar to a surrounding background.
Automatic Gain Control (AGC) - a "Gain" correction that used to automatically adjust the gain to an appropriate range, the weaker the image signal, the stronger the gain.
User-Controlled Manual Non-Uniformity Correction / Flat-Field Correction (UCMNUC / FFC). There is a mechanical shutter between the camera sensor and the lens. This shutter is used to perform a non-uniformity correction (NUC) also known as flat-field correction (FFC. During FFC, the shutter presents a uniform temperature source to each detector element in the array. While imaging the flat-field source, the camera updates the offset correction coefficients, resulting in a more uniform image after the process is complete. All Prometheus models allow for user to manually trigger or interrupt scheduled UCMNUC / FFC function.
Silent Shutterless NUCTM (SSN) - In addition to user controlled manual NUC / FFC all Prometheus models employ a digital supplemental non-mechanical flat-field correction that allows to extend the periods between mechanical shutter events and to further reduce image noise. SSN is always ON enhancement.
