DSEI 19 – Pathfinder Fused Thermal/Color NVIS Viewer by Carson Industries

During SOFIC we have you a sneak peek of the new handheld Pathfinder Fused Thermal/Color NVIS Night Vision Viewer by Carson Industries.

Pathfinder offers both color digital night vision and LWIR thermal cameras in a single, handheld unit. Controls are located along the top of the Pathfinder and are very easy to use.


The user can move from full NV to full thermal with varying degrees of fusion along the way. The system also offers digital zoom capabilities at 2x and 4x. The screen is 400 x 400 color OLED.

Pathfinder allows digital and still image recording via 16 GB onboard storage or via Bluetooth and can be mounted to a tripod. It can also be integrated with GPS.

Expected to retail at $1500 this is a great option to either augment more capable Mil-Spec systems for those who have them or serve as an entry for those who don’t. It weighs less than half a pound and at 2″x3″x6″ easily fits in a pocket. Battery life is more than four hours thanks to an onboard Lithium Ion Battery.
