We are excited to introduce its contemporary and most technologically advanced circle of relatives of Apollo Thermal Imaging clip-on systems to the sporting, law enforcement and military markets. The Apollo product line developed based on the contemporary FLIR Tau 2 VOx microbolometer core and optimizing performance, price, and state of the art technology for quite a few users, from the committed hunter to the military designated marksman.
The Apollo is an uncooled long-wave thermal clip-on device intended to mount in front of the existing magnified day sight. The immediate advantages of this approach of converting the day scope into a thermal imaging device include no change in cheek weld, no change in trigger reach, and continued use of existing ballistic reticules in the day scope. The 24/7 mission capability is only probably the most strengths of the Apollo. The thermal imaging technology also lets you detect targets by cutting through snow, dust, smoke, fog, haze, and other atmospheric obscurants.
The Armasight Apollo removes the traditional requirement of getting rid of your existing day scope from your rifle, to replace it with a dedicated thermal sight (which would also involve re-zeroing). The Apollo simply mounts in front of your own standard daytime optical sight. Factory bore-sighted to tolerances of not up to 1 MOA, no re-zeroing is required. The Apollo allows the user to care for consistent eye relief and shooting position, and as the user views his own day scopes reticle (which he’s accustomed to), no re-training is required.
Along with being the smallest and lightest in their class, Apollo thermal imaging clip-on systems are characterized by their simple and intuitive controls, functions, and features that are layered among direct button adjustments, direct combination button functions, and electronic menu selections. This “layering” of easy-to-keep in mind Keep an eye on functions provides the operator with a framework for customizing his preferences and exploiting the robust variety of setting options to be had in the Apollo. The Apollo has a unique series of menu selectable temperature sensitive “scenarios” for rapid target detection, Along with quite a few color display presentations based on a wealthy, upgradeable software package. A wireless remote switch is included to activate the Apollo thermal imaging clip-on system when situated in the “standby” mode. The Apollo has the ability to record imagery and is equipped with a video-out capability in operator selectable NTSC or PAL formats. The Apollo uses the same multi-pin connector to provide video-in imagery, where There’s a need for map or rangefinder display overlays, and external power get right of entry to.
Apollo weapon installation is easy, repeatable, and reliable based on a unique and highly userfriendly MIL-STD-1913/Weaver/Picatinny rail compatible, quick-release locking mechanism.
Special User-Adjustable Imaging Tools
Active Contrast Enhancement (ACE) – a digital “Contrast” correction that allows for a smart scene optimization based on dynamic adjustments where quite a few contrast levels occur depending on relative scene temperature.
Second Generation Digital Detail Enhancement (DDE) – a “Sharpness” correction that may be digitally enhances the picture to present clearer imagery, significantly improves edge sharpening and further reduces image noise.
Smart Scene Optimization (SSO) – a fine-tuning computational correction that significantly improves an overall visual acuity for targets that have thermal signatures very similar to a surrounding background. Automatic Gain Keep an eye on (AGC) – a “Gain” correction that used to automatically adjust the gain to an appropriate range, the weaker the image signal, the stronger the gain.
User Controlled Manual Non Uniformity Correction/Flat-Field Correction (UCMNUC/FFC). There’s a mechanical shutter between the camera sensor and the lens. This shutter is used to perform a non-uniformity correction (NUC) sometimes called flat-field correction (FFC. Right through FFC, the shutter presents a uniform temperature source to each and every detector element in the array. At the same time as imaging the flat-field source, the camera updates the offset correction coefficients, resulting in a more uniform image after the process is complete. All Apollo models allow for user to manually trigger or interrupt scheduled UCMNUC/FFC function. Silent Shutterless NUC (SSN) – Along with user controlled manual NUC/FFC all Apollo models employ a digital supplemental non-mechanical flat-field correction that allows to extend the periods between mechanical shutter events and to further reduce image noise. SSN is at all times ON enhancement.
