The PAL configuration of BTS-X Pro Scout 8.3Hz Thermal Biocular from FLIR is a handheld thermal biocular capable of capturing photos and recording video of the transmitted image. The 320x240 VOx thermal sensor measures the heat signature within the field of view and enables the operator to see beyond smoke, dust, and fog obscuring the visual scene. Thermal imaging creates an image by discriminating between differences in temperature, allowing the BTS-X to consistently operate in daylight, pitch dark, and dynamic lighting conditions. To help optimize image contrast for specific applications, this biocular features two selectable polarity modes, five adjustable brightness levels, and four InstAlert settings that highlight the hottest object in red. The dedicated polarity, brightness, zoom, and capture buttons located on the top of the housing permit intuitive control of the biocular functions without taking your eyes off the display.

The BTS-XR biocular allows operators to record, store, and transfer images of the thermal scene. Native resolution photos and videos can be recorded to an SD/SDHC card and transferred to a computer using the integrated USB 2.0 port.

FLIR's series of interchangeable manual focus prime lenses (each sold separately) are designed specifically for the Scout series biocular; the 100mm, 65mm, and 35mm lens options all attach to the biocular housing via the quick-detach bayonet mount and provide operators with a task-specific field of view. The included hot shoe attachment has ports to connect the power adapter and an s-video output cable for remote viewing and recording. A full-coverage eyeguard prevents light from the viewfinder display from illuminating the operator's face and helps maintain covert posture. The weather sealed housing, one-touch capture button, and integrated SD/SDHC card slot make the BTS-X Pro a full-featured thermal biocular for first responders and tactical professionals.
