The Prometheus Pro is a high-performance, handheld Thermal monocular. The Prometheus Pro can withstand immersion in water up to 20 meters and absorb even the most brutal environmental shocks. The Prometheus Pro features the most advanced system available on the market today, including options like an electronic compass and inclinometer.

Utilizing the latest FLIR TAU-2 technology, the Prometheus Pro is offered in 336x256 or 640x512 pixel formats. These options are further enhanced by professional, military-grade 50mm or 100mm Germanium (Ge) objective lenses, creating a wide variety of optical magnifications and range performance capabilities that the customer can select from. Armasight has introduced a unique dual battery option for the Prometheus Pro that consists of either four 3.0 V DC CR123A batteries or four 1.5VDC AA batteries pre-loaded in a cartridge.

The Prometheus Pro uses a 9-pin multi-pin connector to provide video-in imagery, where there may be a need for map or range-finder display overlays, as well as external power access. The Prometheus Pro has Bluetooth© wireless capabilities and can directly interface with most smart phones, with the potential for engaging a series of current and future applications.

The Prometheus Pro is the ideal tool for scouting and target detection where the ambient environment is oriented for concealment. The Prometheus Pro is also an extremely useful tool for viewing scenes through environmental obscurants such as smoke, haze, fog, or dust.

  • Special User-Adjustable Imaging Tools
  • Active Contrast Enhancement (ACE) – a digital “Contrast” correction that allows for a smart scene optimization based on dynamic adjustments where a variety of contrast levels occur depending on relative scene temperature.
  • Second Generation Digital Detail Enhancement (DDE) – a “Sharpness” correction that is digitally enhances the picture to present clearer imagery, significantly improves edge sharpening and further reduces image noise.
  • Smart Scene Optimization (SSO) – a fine-tuning computational correction that significantly improves an overall visual acuity for targets that have thermal signatures similar to a surrounding background.
  • Information Based Histogram Equalization (IBHEQ) – a “Sky/Sea” enhancement – information based environment dependent algorithm that automatically adjusts camera gain and excludes pixels determined to not contain critical information, specifically helpful in scenes with lots of sky or water.
  • Automatic Gain Control (AGC) – a “Gain” correction that used to automatically adjust the gain to an appropriate range, the weaker the image signal, the stronger the gain.
  • User Controlled Manual Non Uniformity Correction/Flat-Field Correction (UCMNUC/FFC). There is a mechanical shutter between the camera sensor and the lens. This shutter is used to perform a non-uniformity correction (NUC) also known as flat-field correction (FFC. During FFC, the shutter presents a uniform temperature source to each detector element in the array. While imaging the flat-field source, the camera updates the offset correction coefficients, resulting in a more uniform image after the process is complete. All Prometheus Pro models allow for user to manually trigger or interrupt scheduled UCMNUC/FFC function.
  • Silent Shutterless NUC ™ (SSN) – In addition to user controlled manual NUC/FFC all Prometheus Pro models employ a digital supplemental non-mechanical flat-field correction that allows to extend the periods between mechanical shutter events and to further reduce image noise. SSN is always ON enhancement.

I would like to know its human detection, recognition and identification distances. Also, is the lens interchangeable with 100mm lens? Thank you!
