Design a rugged thermal imaging camera for police, firefighter, coast guard, surveillance, and military personnel that would be small, lightweight, easy-to-use, and that could be carried “on body” into blazing buildings, on covert operations, and through dense fog or thickly wooded areas. At half the cost of its nearest competitor, the X100 offers the affordability and ease of use needed to penetrate new markets such as industrial site management, property maintenance, forestry and park operations, and biological field research.
