The thermal head is an option for following equipment: Leader CAM search camera and Leader HASTY combining listening and camera modes.
USAR applications are various Reconnaissances, Dark confined spaces, Dusty environments, Smoky areas, etc…
Advantage of thermal vision is that body heat is seen. This is not the case with infrared LED technology that only illuminate an area with infrared and that a second combined normal CCD camera captures to display.
The TIC head is disconnectable and replaces CCD normal vision head when wanted. They are plug and play : Image is displayed as soon as head is connected.
Detachable TIC head contains a 160×120 resolution sensor with germanium optic and offers 2 sizes of displayed image: 160x120px & 320x240px (image enlarged).
Another advantage is that it is a 8,8 Hz frequency sensor so Dual Use license is not needed.
it is lightweight, robust, IP67 (with cap) and has 170° mechanical orientation (85° left 85° right) and has 226° field of view.
