No matter how many problems and specific inconveniences there are in a modern person's life, there is no doubt that we must thank fate that allowed us to live in such an interesting era.
Literally every morning, we wake up and, studying the news feed at breakfast, we learn about new and breakthroughs in science that allow us to explore new horizons. Modern technology has given us opportunities that no one could have thought of a couple of decades ago. They make us better, stronger, and more efficient.
A striking example of the results of such a scientific leap was the development of technology for recognizing objects in impenetrable darkness. Half a century ago, humanity dreamed of such an opportunity, and today we have a choice in which version of equipment we use.
On the one hand, we have night vision devices that work by amplifying the incoming light signal. On the other hand, some devices level the night's darkness and interference from bad weather conditions.
And today, we will focus on a detailed examination of the devices of the second category. They are not so well known in popular culture, but they are no less effective. They work thanks to unique technologies. And, for sure - they will give you an unforgettable and unique experience of use.
There have been significant advancements in thermal technology that have led to cheaper, higher quality, and smaller devices. With so many options and varying features, the field has become cluttered in determining the best thermal rifle scope for your need. Depending on need, there are thermal rifle scopes with the ability to identify targets at 1,000+ meters, and there are also price-driven models with identification ranges in the 200+ meter range. We will review the specs to look for in choosing the best thermal scope for your budget and needs.
As we already mentioned, today, there are two main types of technologies that allow us to solve the fundamental problem of our body's deficiencies - the inability to recognize objects in low light conditions. It's no secret that evolution has provided even domestic cats with such a simple function. We were deprived of this elementary advantage up to the invention of two technologies by scientists.
The first one is similar to the vision system of the same cats. Night vision is provided by enhancing weak streams of light that render the object under observation up to the visible range. However, today we are not talking about him but a more intriguing version.
This section of the military and civilian industry is called thermal imaging.
Thermal imaging works by detecting the heat (IR radiation) given off by an object, such as an animal, a human, or a car. That is why such a unit may be used in complete darkness.
From the outside, it may seem like magic. A device that can be in your hand, fixed on your head or helmet, or attached to a rifle will give you tremendous information about the environment you are monitoring.
You get the result of observation in the form of visualization of thermal signatures of objects. With modern advances, infrared cameras, which are the heart of the device, have become much better quality and sensitive. This was due to the optimization of infrared optical image sensors' production process, a fundamental part of the device. Thanks to this, today, you have the opportunity to use compact and lightweight devices that give amazing results.
One of the main indicators of devices is the field of view. There are three main options: a 6 ° telephoto counterpart, 23 ° standard optics, and a 48 ° wide-angle lens. Without going into technical details, we can draw the following conclusion: one of the advantages of a thermal imager is that the distance to the object does not affect measuring the temperature signature, and therefore does not distort the image.
What opportunities does this technology provide you? Limitless. To see the object, both at night, and in snowfall, and the rain, and in fog, you need a little. The object's temperature needs to be above absolute zero. All further will be done by the technician. And you will see a high-quality and informative image with different light intensities correlated with temperature.
Moreover, thermal riflescopes are passive infrared weapon sighting systems that allow operators to spot heat signatures day or night in the rain, through deep/tall grass, fog, dust, and smoke. And this opportunity makes this technology even more attractive to us, infinitely expanding our capabilities.
When do you need a thermal scope for your rifle?
In the previous section, we covered the basics of thermal imagers as is obvious, the ability to register and display temperature fluctuations of objects and heat signatures in general. Such characteristics make thermal scopes more effective in certain applications.
It is only natural that such fantastic opportunities do not leave anyone indifferent. And if you think that such a technique is in demand only for military purposes and hunting, you are wrong. Today, the fields of equipment application based on thermal imaging technology are so extensive that it is simply impossible to list them completely.
Police and security officers can use both thermal and night vision scopes, particularly for surveillance. A thermal system will still deliver more effective detection in such environmental conditions as fog, dust, or smoke. Hunters can use night-vision devices (NVDs) to maneuver through the woods at night, but a thermal type of scope will be more effective for spotting a resting or otherwise still animal in thick foliage or wooded areas. And rescue teams can more easily locate an injured or unconscious person or other signs of life on land or in water, even in fog or smoke, and day or night.
Technology not only saves lives but also reduces financial damage. Today, no large-scale building renovation is complete without assessing leaks and thermal insulation, carried out using thermal imagers. Even with minor repairs to your plumbing or heating in your home, these devices can help you save money. After all, you don't need to disassemble and dismantle half of the bathroom to find the problem.
Modern medicine also does not neglect the results of the development of modern technologies. The equipment that displays the temperature background is incredibly in demand both in active treatment and in diagnostics.
In general, like any scientific breakthrough, thermal imaging is confidently being introduced into all areas of our life, and this process is ongoing. And, for sure, this section will soon receive a completely unexpected continuation.
Today we are talking about one of two advanced night vision technologies. It isn't easy to give an advantage to any of them. It all depends on the goals and objectives that you set for yourself when buying an expensive device.
Night vision scopes, being image-enhancement technology, uses electronics and amplifies the amount of light in dark circumstances and uses this light to enable you to view in the dark. If there is no light, night vision will not generate an image, unlike thermal imaging.
This means that when using a night vision device, you must have certain conditions. For example, if there is a full moon in the sky, producing light, the image will be perfect. But, if the location is not illuminated, then the device becomes useless. And you either have to use artificial light sources or rely on your own eyes. We reject the last option immediately, and with the first option, you get a threat to be unmasked since the artificial source is clearly visible under certain conditions.
Also, keep in mind that night vision devices become quite limited when the weather is far from ideal. Fog, heavy rain, blizzard - all this makes it impossible to use the device.
With thermal imagers, everything is completely different. Based on a remote measurement of the temperature regime of the objects of observation, their operation principle allows you to obtain an optimal overview. The actual picture you get will be different. But, in terms of information content, they do not differ from each other. Moreover, with a thermal imager, you can also distinguish between traces and thermal marks under certain conditions.
The optimal condition and the only correct answer will be to have both types of devices in their arsenal. Believe me, they will be useful to you, and you will remember us with a kind word more than once if you do just that. But, don't forget that both technologies are complicated to manufacture and engineering specification. And it is quite logical that their cost is very high. Not everyone can afford the pleasure of acquiring the optimal set of tools.
If you are limited in the financial side of the purchase - very carefully and prudently analyze the purposes for which you are buying the device. And if thermal imaging is your choice, then our advice is for you.
