FLIR Launches Recon V UltraLite Thermal Imager

Having the right equipment for the job is critical for military and law enforcement personnel. As technology progresses, more capability is demanded and portability, power and weight become critical factors. FLIR built the new Recon V UltraLite thermal monocular with this in mind.

The Recon V UltraLite, the latest version in the Recon series of thermal monoculars and part of FLIR’s Soldier Solutions family, weighs less than three pounds (1.4 kilograms), which is 2.5 pounds (1.1 kilograms) lighter than previous versions. The UltraLite allows military personnel and border patrol agents to see high resolution color images during the day as well as heat signatures day or night, and offers long-range detection, recognition, recording and geo-location. Equipped with a high-definition color display, laser range finder, GPS and digital magnetic compass, the UltraLite can be used as a handheld device or mounted to a tripod or other fixed location.

The Recon V UltraLite also has Wi-Fi connectivity and Android Tactical Assault Kit (ATAK) network capabilities to provide warfighters network-centric awareness. Durable and easy to operate, the Recon V UltraLite uses commercially available AA batteries and features up to four hours of continuous use.

The Recon V UltraLite is sold directly through FLIR and is available today to military and force protection customers.
