The ClipIR® is a small Clip-On Thermal Imager*

The ClipIR® extends the capability of Image Intensifier (I2) Night Vision Goggles/Monoculars, including AN/PVS 14/15, to enable them to see in total darkness. They are the dream of every operator: Fusion technology on existing night vision systems. Entry into a totally dark building is fully possible on 100% thermal vision without the need to use any light source.

ClipIR® is lightweight, ultra-miniature, rugged, waterproof and functions for up to 4.5 hours off a single internal AA battery in full ambient temperature extremes, removing the need for cumbersome external batteries. Operating at 50Hz, ClipIR® features superior optical design for wide-matched I2 field of view, giving optimum situational awareness, image enhancement and simple operation under all conditions.
