Thermal imaging has become a mission-critical part of the soldier's everyday combat gear. It gives troops a clear edge on the battlefield by increasing their ability to gather intel and take action. For example, IR-powered binoculars, monocular vision systems, rifle sights and helmet clip-ons help soldiers adopt the appropriate course of action by accurately confirming any threats in their vicinity. Thermal imaging not only delivers greater protection for ground forces, but also bolsters their intel-gathering activities, improves their capacity for military intervention and accelerates their speed of response. LYNRED has developed an extensive range of cooled and uncooled thermal detectors covering the entire infrared spectrum to support infantry troops with their missions.
