Jackal 336 Thermal Imaging Camera Clip-On

Shepherd Scopes Jackal Series is one of the smallest infrared thermal camera Clip-on System available today.  The Jackal Series has a wide range of features that puts it at the forefront of all other clip on thermal cameras in its class.  Shepherd, in cooperation with Armasight has created a user package that is one of the only thermal camera passive range finding systems available.


The Jackal is an uncooled long-wave thermal clip-on device intended to mount in front of your existing Shepherd dual reticle range finding scope. The immediate advantages of this approach is the continued use of existing range finding bullet drop compensating reticle packages found in all of Shepherd’s advanced weapon platforms.


The Shepherd Scopes Jackal series eliminates the traditional requirement of removing your existing day scope from your rifle, to replace it with a dedicated thermal sight (which would also involve re-zeroing). The Jackal simply mounts in front of your Shepherd standard daytime sight. Factory bore-sighted to tolerances of less than 1 MOA, no re-zeroing is required.  The thermal cameras allow the user to detect targets through obstructions such as snow, dust, smoke, fog, haze, and other atmospheric obscurants.  By combining it with you Shepherd scope you get the best of both worlds.


Shepherd has included a compass and inclinometer in the Jackal Series and combines with our range finding reticle package in our day time scope platforms this combination gives accurate range and target determination in a matter of seconds. A five-button wireless remote switch is included to operate and modify the settings on the Jackal to optimize the imagery for the viewed scene without having to remove your hands from the weapon.


Utilizing the latest FLIR Quark 2 Technology, the Jackal is offered in 336×256 and 640×512 pixel formats. The wireless remote capability and Bluetooth features prevents the Jackal from becoming obsolete as new applications and software reaches maturity and comes to market. Through the multi-pin connector, the operator can record video using the Digital Video Recorder (DVR), augment the battery life by attaching to external battery options, and update/upload new software revision and applications from personal accounts associated with the Shepherd Scopes customer access web sites
