For serious hunters, law enforcement and military personnel, the Armasight® Zeus series of thermal weapon sights sets the gold standard for top performance and 24/7 mission capability in all conditions. Based on the latest FLIR Tau 2 VOx microbolometer core and equipped with an upgraded 640 x 512 pixel array format and upgraded AMOLED SVGA 800 x 600 display, the Zeus 640 3-24x75mm (30Hz) Thermal Imaging Rifle Scope delivers enhanced digital imagery that's so crisp and clear, you won't believe you're looking through a thermal device.
While primarily designed as a weapon scope, the Zeus functions equally well in its collateral assignments as a magnified spotting scope or handheld thermal imager. Day or night, through rain, snow, smoke, fog, haze, dust and the obscurants, the Zeus detects targets with unfailing reliability.
Simple, intuitive controls, direct button adjustments, direct combination button functions and electronic menu selections make the Zeus 640 easy to operate and adjust for optimal performance. A wireless remote control can be placed anywhere on your weapon, allowing for easy adjustments and control manipulation without taking your hands of your weapon and out of the shooting position.
Rapid start-up gets the Zeus up and running in less than 3 seconds, and a full compliment of color modes and special, user-adjustable imaging tools allows for fine tuning images to the situation and operator preference. Brightness is adjustable to 8 levels, and a video out jack allows for recording and playback with the optional Armasight® DVR (sold separately).
The Zeus can be easily attached / detached thanks to a MIL-STD-1913 quick release mount. Plus, integral MIL-STD-1913 rails allow for attaching option day optics or accessories.
Special User-Adjustable Imaging Tools provide ultimate versatility and customization.
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 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 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 Zeus 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 Zeus 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 an always ON enhancement.
