The FLIR T70 is an uncooled clip-on thermal weapon sight designed and optimized for use with NATO 5.56x45mm and 7.62x51mm rounds with an approximate 500 meter range. It features a low, in-line opto-mechanical profile that compliments current Rifle Combat Optics and is suitable for weaponry featuring flip-down or removable front sight posts. The FLIR features a x1 default field of view for center of mass hits at 500 meters, and a x1.5 field of view to allow the operator to display a wide area of regard for situational awareness. It also functions as a standalone weapon sight and hand held thermal viewer.
The FLIR T70 is powered by either 3 AA batteries, 5 hours at 20 degrees Celsius, or 2 CR123 batteries, 4 hours at 20 degrees Celsius, and the batteries can be replaced without removing the sight from the weapon. It features the standard white hot/black hot polarity modes, although it can also show images in full color using several palette modes:
Gray (Grayscale) Palette – provides maximum contrast on targets against a uniform background using black and white shades.
Iron Palette – provides a color scale that goes from dark red through yellow to white to represent increasing temperatures.
Rain (Rainbow) Palette – uses all the colors of the rainbow from red through green, blue, and yellow to violet to represent increasing temperatures.
Ice (Fire & Ice) Palette – displays blue for cold targets and red for hot targets.
The FLIR T70 comes in a Flat Dark Earth finish.
