IDEX 2017

Superior detection [IDEX17D1]

18 February 2017

British company Thermoteknix (Stand 08-A25) is launching its FuseIR Fused Night Vision device in the Middle East here at IDEX.

FuseIR is said by the company to offer superior detection and identification capabilities in a compact and lightweight package, weighing just 400g, and will be available commercially from next March. Built in a rugged alloy housing, it boasts a six-hour operation on just two AA batteries, with no need for an external battery pack.

Handheld/helmet-mounted FuseIR combines image intensification (I2) with thermal imaging.

The fusion of the two technologies (Fused Night Vision) goes beyond capabilities of separate I2 and thermal imaging devices to enable detection and identification of targets in all conditions including low light, complete darkness, dense cloud coverage, heavy forest/ jungle, inside buildings and in fog/ smoke, as well as in brightly lit urban environments or through glass.

FuseIR is based on the latest generation, high sensitivity and high frequency responsive intensifier tube combined with a Thermoteknix MicroCAM 3 thermal imaging core.

It is the only enhanced night vision device with Thermoteknix patented Shutterless XTI technology so has no moving parts, is silent in operation and is ‘Never Blind’.
