Teledyne Flir Debuts a Sniper Sight

Teledyne Flir has unveiled a long-range cooled thermal sniper sight, the ThermoSight Hiss-HD.

The company, a subsidiary of Thousand Oaks-based aerospace, marine and digital imaging products manufacturer Teledyne Technologies Inc., debuted the sniper sight on Jan. 23 at the first day of the Shot Show in Las Vegas.

The lightweight, high-performance thermal weapon sight allows shooters to detect, identify and engage targets more than 2,200 meters away with unparalleled accuracy, the company claims.

Rob Tarantino, vice president of surveillance strategy and development at Teledyne Flir, called the sniper sight the “unmatched choice” for shooters looking for a versatile, lightweight thermal sight that increases their range and accuracy.

“With Hiss-HD, we’ve leveraged our world-class thermal imagining technology to provide marksmen with a superior tool to identify and engage targets anywhere, in any environment,” Tarantino said.

Hiss-HD can be used by long-range snipers and for missions involving reconnaissance, force protection, surveillance and forward observation.

With the added flexibility of an optional remote-control pendant, the HISS-HD enhances shooting stability, reduces revealing movements and is configured for remote observation, the company added. This unique combination of stand-off range and long-range target engagement empowers shooters with overmatch capability in any operational scenario, it said.

Teledyne Flir exhibited at the Shot Show from Jan. 23 to 26. The show’s organizers bill it as “the largest and most comprehensive trade show for all professionals involved with the shooting sports, hunting, outdoor and law enforcement industries.”
