SD InSb, 150/750mm, 40km
Infiniti’s thermal cameras let you see further than any other night vision technology. Thermal cameras, unlike traditional visible cameras, use heat rather than light to see an object. Humans, animals, and vehicles are very hot in contrast to most backgrounds making trespassers hiding in shadows or bushes easy to spot. Thermal images are also unaffected by bright light and have the ability to see through atmospheric obstructions such as smoke, dust, and light fog. This makes it an ideal technology for a number of applications, including but not limited to surveillance and security, search and rescue, fire, marine and land navigation, and wide area situational assessment.
This 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 the built-in Digital Detail Enhancement (DDE) for increased contrast and image clarity, this system is capable of detecting vehicles up to 40km 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.
Rated for 20km human detection and 40km vehicle detection.

MWIR Cooled InSb Thermal Imager
The Viper contains a high sensitivity 15μm cooled InSb sensor with a resolution of 640×480 and an ultra-long cooler lifetime of 20,000 hours. The cooled sensor is able to detect differences in temperature as small as ±0.025°C, providing more detail for tracking of targets at extreme ranges in total darkness and through most obscurants, with performance on par with 1500mm thermal systems.
Dual-FOV Germanium Lens
We pair the cooled InSb core with a precision-engineered germanium lens with a dual-FOV design allowing you to view targets at either 150mm or 750mm. This allows for long-range detection of thermal targets by switching between a 3.6° and 0.7° field of view. These lenses also feature auto focus capabilities, delivering crisp, clear images even when changing inbetween FOVs, ensuring optimal performance and situational awareness in the wide field of view and crisp details in the narrow field of view.
