The IR Patrol is packed full of features exclusive to the commercial thermal market including Quick Command Control, and a fully ruggedized thumb stick controller. The IR Patrol is also the most affordable 640 resolution thermal monocular ever to hit the commercial, LE, and military market. The IR Patrol combines the latest technology 12 micron BAE thermal core with miniaturized electronics to create a user friendly rugged waterproof package taking LE and night hunters to the next level of thermal imagery..

Thumb Stick Controller
The IR Patrol comes standard equipped with a multi-directional fully ruggedized, weather-proof thumb stock control. The thumb stick is large and easy to find in the dark and is much quicker and easier to use than conventional buttons found on nearly every other thermal system on the market.

QCM - Quick Command Mode
Quick Command Mode(QCM) is featured in all models of the IR Patrol. QCM is a an extremely advantageous tactical feature that is completely user configurable. QCM allows the user to configure 4 icons as seen below, each of which is controlled by the movement of the thumb stick controller in that direction. QCM allows you to configure each location to which ever icon you choose. If you want the same icon in all locations, you can do that. These icons are set by moving the thumb stick in the direction you wish to set while holding the thumb stuck in that direction, each button press will change the icon type. Once you have the icon you desire, release and you are done. The thumb stick featured on the IR Patrol is the easiest to use control system on the market, and with QCM the IR Patrol offers full customization.

Compatibility with Afocal Magnifiers/Len Multipliers
The 2X and 3X afocal magnifying lenses compatible with the IR Patrol will double or triple your lens magnification and detection range. This is the most cost effective way to increase you lens magnification and usable range while still retaining the ability to quickly remove the magnifier and use a wide angle 1X field of view.

Performance, Durability and Affordability
Whether you are protecting our borders, searching for a lost child, or eradicating groups of feral hogs, operators need high resolution thermal images in a small robust device. The IR Patrol thermal monocular is a game changer for the night vision industry. For the first time ever, night vision users can enjoy thermal high definition imagery for under five thousand dollars ($5,000.00 USD).

The IR Patrol features an advanced user interface with a military grade thumb stick that is the perfect size - no more searching for buttons in the dark. With the monocular's ergonomic design, users can take advantage of all the functionality, including the menu system that is engineered to be intuitive and efficient to operate.

Quality, Quality and Quality
The IR Patrol was designed for military applications at a consumer affordable price point. All the components inside the IR Patrol are the highest quality. The BAE Systems long wave infrared (LWIR) uncooled, 30 Hz thermal core, combined with Emagin's OLED, 10,000:1 contrast VGA display and our 6061 aircraft aluminum housings, are the highest quality system components available. All made in the USA.

The IR Patrol LE100 Thermal Monocular is our entry level system featuring a 640x480 thermal image at 30Hz frame rate. Polarity Digital E-Zoom, brightness, and DFC Digital focus give operational control of the system.
