Building on the success of the original ClipIR small clip-on thermal imager, Thermoteknix is launching new ClipIR XD. Innovative ClipIR provides a fusion upgrade by injecting a thermal image into conventional Night Vision devices.
The new product still boasts a 40 degree Field of View but has extended range performance and can be supplied without an internal battery. This allows ClipIR XD to take power from integrated helmet systems, reducing overall weight and improving helmet balance. ClipIR XD also has an option for video input, allowing users to view video overlays (such as symbology, etc.) directly through Night Vision devices.
Thermoteknix is also launching CoVid , a Video Injection Unit which enables use of heads-up display (HUD) for combat operations in complete darkness. CoVid is powered by its host system and weighs less than 50g when attached to a Night Vision Device.
CoVid incorporates a quick-fit mount allowing the unit to be attached to a variety of NVGs, without tools. Incorporating unique optical injection technology CoVid enables users to view HUD data covertly at night.
Thermoteknix is demonstrating CoVid in cooperation with Applied Research Associates, Inc. (ARA) who employ CoVid with their ARC4 Augmented Reality (AR) RECON product (www.ara.com/ARC4). ARC4 RECON increases situational awareness of the dismounted soldier by inserting video data and symbols into the user’s night vision. ARA are the first customer to integrate CoVid into their AR system enabling covert use of the AR during night operations.
The third product–ConnectIR– is an Android application that networks images and data between TiCAM 1000 cameras (TiCAM 1000A, 1000B and 1000C) and other devices including phones, tablets and computers.
ConnectIR is indispensable for Surveillance, Homeland Security, Counter Terror, Military and Police forces, providing near real-time sharing of thermal and visible images with Operator and target location data using commercial or military networks. The application is available in a Standard or Professional version.
