HD MCT, 40–835mm, 45km
The Viper is a Mid-Wave Infrared (MWIR) thermal camera which means it operates on 3,000nm–5,000nm wavelengths where terrestrial temperature targets emit most of their infrared energy. Using real-time image enhancements (anti-blooming, contrast enhancement and scene optimization), this system is capable of detecting vehicles up to 45km away*. While thermal is a significant investment, its superior range and performance allows it to replace and outperform all other solutions, making it a viable option for many applications.

MWIR HD Cooled Thermal Imager
This high sensitivity 10μm cooled Mercury Cadmium Telluride (HgCdTe or MCT) sensor with a high definition resolution of 1280×720 and an ultra-long cooler lifetime of 24,000 hours. The cooled sensor is able to detect differences in temperature as small as ±0.02°C, providing more detail for tracking of targets at extreme ranges in total darkness and through most obscurants, with performance on par with 2500mm thermal systems.
20X Continuous Zoom Germanium Lens
The cooled MCT thermal core is paired with a precision-engineered ƒ4.4 germanium zoom lens allowing you to view targets with a 16X optical zoom range from 40mm to 835mm. This allows for long-range detection of thermal targets by offering anything from a 18° to 0.9° field of view. These lenses also feature auto focus capabilities, delivering crisp, clear images even when adjusting zoom, ensuring optimal performance and situational awareness in the wide field of view and crisp details in the narrow field of view.
