Thermal imaging is far from a new idea, but that doesn’t mean it has been forgotten. Thanks to slim sensors, the new lineup of small, mountable thermal imagers from BAE Systems promises to turn soldiers into more efficient marksmen.
The two big products from BAE are the SkeetIR and the StalkIR, a pair of battlefield-ready monoculars. Where as the SkeetIR has a footprint the size of a credit card, the StalkIR has a 640×480 resolution, dual lasers, and a magnetic compass. Both can be clipped onto weapons as scopes, while the SkeetIR can also be clipped to a helmet.
