Prowler 336 Thermal Camera Imaging Sight

 

Shepherd Scopes Prowler series is a thermal camera based rifle scope that is the first of its kind.  In cooperation with Armasight Shepherd Scopes has incorporated into the infrared camera based system Shepherd’s patented range finding and target sizing approach. Shepherd Scopes invented the dual reticle scope over 35 years ago and has now incorporated their custom range finding drop compensating digital reticle system into its latest and most technologically advanced family of thermal imaging weapon sights.  The thermal platform is a welcome addition to any shooting enthusiast’s tactical gear or hunting gear.  The Prowler family of weapon sights are specifically designed for shooters in hunting law enforcement, and military markets. The thermal camera based sights are based on the latest FLIR Tau 2 infrared camera core. While primarily designed as a weapon sight, the Prowler functions equally well as a spotting scope, handheld thermal imager or in its monocular form.

 

The Prowler is a solid state, uncooled, long-wave infrared, magnified dedicated weapon scope intended for day and night missions without the need to remove the sight from the rifle.  Thermal imaging technology allows the user to detect targets by cutting through snow, dust, smoke, fog, haze, and other atmospheric obscurants. Also with no spectral signature the Prowler thermal imaging weapon sight is extremely difficult to detect with other devices, as it emits no visible light or RF energy.

 

In addition to being the smallest and lightest in their class, the Prowler thermal imaging weapon sights are characterized by their simple and intuitive controls.  A wireless remote switch is included to activate the Prowler thermal imaging weapon sight when positioned in the “standby” mode. The Prowler has the ability to record videos with optional Digital Video Recorder and is also equipped with a video-out capability in operator selectable NTSC or PAL formats.

 

Prowler weapon installation is easy, repeatable, and reliable based on a unique and highly user-friendly MIL-STD-1913/ Weaver/ Picatinny rail-compatible, quick-release locking mechanism. The Prowler solid state technology and software algorithms in conjunction with the shepherd reticle system ensures high-level target accuracy. This level of accuracy is translated into the electronic zoom (e-zoom) function of the Prowler thermal camera weapon sights, which can be progressively increased from 1x to 2x, 4x, and 8x, without changing the point-of-aim to point of-impact relationship of the targeting reticle. The Prowler range finding reticle system is now built into to a display that auto adjusts as you move through magnification. The Prowler allows users to range and size moving targets without taking their eye from the scope and is the fastest moving target acquisition and firing technology available today in a thermal camera platform.
