The TIMRO-X™ is one of the smallest thermal imaging devices in the world. It can be used as a thermal imaging goggle as well as a thermal imaging aiming device on the weapon. Of course, it can also be used as a hand-held device. Due to its PAL/NTSC output it can also be used as a stationary observation device. Many SEKs in Germany and military special units worldwide take advantage of the TIMRO-X™.
Even if the TIMRO-X™ is worn as goggles, it only takes seconds to remove it from the helmet and mount it on a STANAG rail (MIL-STD 1913). Thus, a thermal imaging monocular turns into a weapon sight optics with a range of up to 800m (with magnification lens).
The TIMRO-X™ can also be used as a clip-on in combination with scopes whose magnification can be reduced to 1.5 times.
Another possibility to use the TIMRO-X™ in combination with a scope is the use of the side mount. Here, the TIMRO-X™ is mouted next to the scope. This allows both, optics and the thermal imaging device, to be used simultaneously. This makes the use during the day and the identification of targets in both wavelength ranges easier .
Use as thermal imaging goggles:
In term of size and weight, the TIMRO-X™ is one of the smallest thermal imaging devices on the market. This makes the device also suitable for use as thermal imaging goggles.

Only for authorities!
In cooperation with our customers, many additional attachments have already been developed in order to continually expand the fuctionality of the TIMRO system. Magnification lenses with up to 3× magnification and shutter eyecups to avoid stray light are just as much part of it as different mounting options for the weapon. Thus, the investment in the basic system can be kept future-proof even afterwards by the subsequent procurement of attachments and accessories.
