FLIR BTS Bi-Ocular Thermal Night Vision Camera Sees Through Smoke Grenades and Cover

We let one of our FLIR BTS long range thermal imagers wander out into the woods for a while to try some experiments. We've always been told how the infrared cameras can see through smoke, dust, and fog. Well we decided to make a smoke screen of our own and put it to the test using a battlefield smoke grenade. This is what came back!

Utilizing either a 320 x 240 or 640 x 480 pixel detector with advanced image-processing algorithms, the high performance Scout Bi-Ocular (BTS Series) allows you to see more and see farther than any other Scout imager.

Following the success of FLIR's Scout monocular cameras, FLIR's new Scout Bi-Ocular Series gives outdoor enthusiasts even more choices and control in their thermal viewing experience. When you're watching for extended periods of time over long distances, nothing is more comfortable than watching with both eyes and holding with both hands. As comfortable as a set of binoculars, the BTS series is designed to make prolonged use easy. Featuring a full coverage eyepiece, inter-ocular adjustment, ergonomic comfort, straightforward controls, interchangeable quick disconnect lenses, and unrivaled performance that only FLIR's high-resolution thermal cores can deliver, the Scout Bi-Ocular is a must-have for any avid outdoor enthusiast. Keep track of your party, see animals, track game, and travel safely at night or in poor visibility conditions. Your Scout Bi-Ocular isn't just for out on the trail-there are dozens of on-the-water, on-the-go, or at-home uses.
