Today at SHOT Show 2016 in Las Vegas, FLIR is showcasing two exciting new additions to our award-winning Scout Series of thermal vision monoculars: Scout III and our new entry-level imager, Scout TK.
FLIR’s expanded portfolio of thermal vision products now meets the needs of both outdoor enthusiasts and seasoned pros like hunters, ranchers, and land managers who require the industry’s highest resolutions and range performance.
Scout III Now with 30/60Hz
Announced today, the Scout III builds on our popular Scout II model, but offers enhanced digital detail processing, a new 640 resolution model, and frame rates of 30Hz (240 / 640 models) and 60Hz (320 model). With the Scout III, video is smoother and more lifelike than ever. Scout III maintains the Scout Series’ rugged, lightweight design, making it easy to pack in all weather conditions.
For hunters in states that allow for thermal-aided hunts, the Scout III is an essential tool for preseason scouting and recovering downed game obscured by thick underbrush. For ranchers and land managers, Scout III will help you keep watch for predators, to help protect your livestock, and guard your safety day or night.
Wherever your next outdoor adventure takes you, Scout III is ready.
Scout TK for Outdoor Recreation
Starting under $600, the Scout TK thermal handheld camera, named Men’s Journal Best of CES 2016, is specifically designed for campers, hikers, and weekend warriors to explore the outdoors after darkness falls. Using FLIR’s breakthrough Lepton microcamera thermal technology that enables a more compact design, the Scout TK lets users spot humans, animals and anything else in the night up to 100 yards. Just as Scout III delivers another level of advanced thermal night vision performance into hunting and shooting sports, the Scout TK's introduces the outdoor recreation community to the amazing benefits of thermal night vision.
The Scout III will be available in the U.S. in the first quarter of 2016 starting at $1,799 through established FLIR dealers. For more information on the Scout III, visit www.flir.com/ScoutIII. The FLIR Scout TK will begin shipping worldwide in the first quarter of 2016 for $599. Consumers can pre-register for the product at www.flir.com/ScoutTK.
