FLIR's new KF6 is the industry's first thermal imager designed and built specifically for aerial apparatus applications. Mountable at the end of a straight stick and onto a ladder bucket, the KF6 provides firefighters a high-angle thermal view of rooftops and other elevated structures, helping them see through thick smoke, more efficiently target the hottest areas, and more strategically direct firefighting efforts.

  • A New TIC Vantage Point

    The FLIR KF6 is the first mountable OEM TIC specifically for aerial apparatus applications. Providing a high-angle thermal view of rooftops, upper stories, and other elevated structures, KF6 can help your team see clearly through smoke and total darkness from an additional strategic perspective for more effective targeting and situational awareness.

  • Aerial Mounting Flexibility

    The KF6 can be easily and securely fixed-mounted under or atop aerial platforms and at the end of straight sticks. A single cable with a MIL-C connector provides 10-32 VDC in and composite video out for simple installation.

  • Best Resolution Shows You More

    Featuring 640 × 480 IR resolution and a 69° FOV, bolstered with onboard FSX™ Flexible Scene Enhancement, the KF6 produces vivid thermal images, providing finer detail and greater visibility for easier orientation and structural identification.
