FLIR LS64 Thermal Night Vision Monocular

The LS64 thermal imager uses the small chassis of the Scout PS32, which I’ve also used, and adds the high resolution and fast refresh-rate from the law enforcement cameras to create one of the most versatile thermal systems I’ve ever used.

On the outside it looks like a black version the PS24 and PS32 imagers. But on the inside it uses an unconventional detector size, a 640 x 512 VOx Microbolometer. That huge detection core allows the LS64 to zoom much further than traditional hand-held units.

The LS series rounds out FLIR’s Law Enforcement line, offering a lightweight alternative to the long range HS and BHS nightvision systems.

These are designed for police to be carried in a patrol car, but they’re available to general civilians. The battery lasted me a little over five hours, and I was able to comfortably detect and identify coyotes and people out past 300 yards.
