Two Scion Thermal Monocular Models to Debut at IWA Outdoor Classics Show in Germany

FLIR Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: FLIR) introduced today the new FLIR Scion™ thermal monocular family in Europe. The first two FLIR Scion models, the Outdoor Thermal Monocular (OTM), and Professional Thermal Monocular (PTM), will debut at the annual IWA Outdoor Classics Show in Nuremberg, Germany from March 8th – 11th. The Scion family is powered by FLIR’s breakthrough Boson® core technology, which provides detailed thermal imaging and detection for the tactical professional and outdoor enthusiast markets.

The rugged Scion PTM and Scion OTM features FLIR’s most advanced thermal imaging core, which allows users to quickly detect objects with greater detail and offer clear vision in low visibility conditions. Available in 9 hertz or 60 hertz refresh rates for the Scion OTM and a 60 hertz refresh rate for the PTM, the family features 2 gigabytes of internal storage and a microSD™ card slot to record both geotagged video or still images for later playback. Additional features include, picture-in-picture zoom, global positioning system (GPS) functionality, and both Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi capabilities to allow simple file transfer between devices.

The Scion PTM connects with FLIR TruWITNESS® wearable sensor platform built for city-level security and public safety operations. TruWITNESS combines video, audio, and location data so organizations can stream encrypted thermal footage of any pursuit, evidence recovery, or search and rescue effort to the command center and other smart devices via wireless network.

“We’re excited to introduce the FLIR Scion thermal monocular family to the European market and provide a new level of capabilities for outdoor enthusiasts and public safety professionals,” said Travis Merrill, FLIR Commercial Business Unit President. “The unique integration of FLIR TruWITNESS in the Scion PTM allows public safety professionals the ability to stream live thermal video to a command center and providing more information for real-time decision making in the field.”

The Scion OTM and Scion PTM will be available in Europe in the Spring, starting at €2300 (excl. VAT) through established FLIR dealers. For more information, visit
