The 54mm TVS 13M 640x512 Thermal Riflescope from Newcon Optik is a multi-purpose thermal imaging device equipped for mid-range targeting and observation. By analyzing the heat signature of the visual scene, thermal imagers are capable of seeing through fog, dust, daylight, and darkness to reveal subjects of interest where the naked eye sees none. This thermal scope can be weapon mounted for tactical engagement as well as tripod mounted and handheld for patrol and reconnaissance missions. When it comes to covert operations, the TVS 13M is a true force multiplier.
A 640x512 microbolometer thermal detector sits at the core of the TVS 13M imaging system. This heat sensor has 50mK sensitivity, capable of distinguishing subtle temperature differences and creating well-defined thermal images. An RCA video port allows the transmitted image to be outputted at full-resolution to video monitors and recording devices. The detector's 30Hz refresh rate delivers near-real time images that are ideal for intelligence gathering and essential for long-range target engagement.
This configuration of the TVS 13M has a 54mm focal length and transmits a 10x8° angle of view. For a closer look, digital zoom will magnify the visual scene by 2x, 4x, or 8x. For a better view of the displayed image, this electro-optic has user-selectable options and image enhancement tools that enable customized viewing. To improve image quality, this scope has brightness and contrast adjustment controls that supplement four polarity modes. The four polarity modes allow the operator to designate white-hot, black-hot, or even transpose the heat signature into a false-color image. Additionally, the shooter can choose between six reticle options and ten pre-loaded ballistics profiles that can assist shot placement by integrating ballistics data that corresponds to the chambered round.
In addition to the optical features and functionality, the TVS 13M thermal scope is equipped to handle the rigors of the battlefield. The housing is nitrogen-filled and weather-sealed to meet Mil-Std 810G waterproofing standards, and it is rated for extreme temperature operation. Using the included quick-release Picatinny mount, this optic is also ready to endure the recoil force of heavy caliber ammo. The built-in MOLED color display, 3-second start-up time, and comfortable 30mm eye relief complement this scope's range of features, and help make the TVS 13M a fully-loaded thermal optic for tactical engagement, threat detection and intelligence gathering.
