Pulsar is working on the smallest and most compact, state of the art miniature thermal imaging monocular. A source leaked a few “stolen” images of the monocular in use; what we can gleam of the design from these pictures is that it most probably employs a higher level of technology than previously ever used by Pulsar and that also features a redefined design and materials, with different power sources than the present standard of Pulsar proprietary rechargeable batteries.
Also, it seems to be more than a production prototype, maybe in the final stages of production. Not even a name has yet to be released, however our source, which has briefly tested the monocular, was enthusiastic in highlighting the size, lightweight and performance of the unit.
It can also be seen in one of the pictures compared to the already compact and state of the art Helion thermal camera. As soon as we have additional details, we’ll be sure to release them to our loyal readers!
We are sure the product will officially be showcased by Pulsar at SHOT Show 2019. Stay tuned to all4shooters.com!
