Armasight Handheld Sidekick 320 Thermal Monocular


Armasight has announced the release of the Sidekick 320 handheld Thermal Optic — the smallest fully multi-functional 12-micron 320 thermal imaging monocular on the market.

Designed and assembled in the U.S., the Sidekick 320 boasts a fast 60Hz frame rate for smooth operation and visual acuity based on Armasight’s Iron Wolf thermal technology platform. Weighing under 210 grams (7.4 ounces), it can be used as a handheld mini-monocular or headset/helmet mounted utilizing the built-in mini-rail for hands-free operation. The high-definition 1024 × 768 OLED display provides a crisp image, with iconography providing key information.

The Sidekick features simplified three-button controls to allow for easy manipulation in the field. Additional features include image capture, one-touch in-unit video recording, USB video stream, and USB-C interface for viewing your recordings and photos on external devices such as computers or televisions.
