SHOT Show 2015: FLIR Launches New Thermal Camera for Law Enforcement

January 20, 2015  | 

FLIR Systems, manufacturer of thermal cameras, today announced the release of the FLIR LS-X and LS-XR handheld thermal cameras, which are built for the demanding missions of the modern law enforcement officer.

The newest and most advanced cameras in the field-proven LS series, the LS-X and LS-XR feature enhanced high resolution color displays, extended range performance and video output for recording and external displays. The LS-X has a 320 x 240 sensor and up to 4X e-zoom, while the LS-XR has a 640 x 480 sensor with up to 8X e-zoom for superior vision. Both are designed for simple, single hand use in rugged conditions.

The LS-Series thermal imagers see heat, instead of light, allowing law enforcement professionals to search in total darkness and avoid using flashlights that could reveal their location. The LS-Series cameras feature multiple imaging modes that can detect the body heat of a human or animals through light fog, rain and even smoke.

LS-Series cameras are easy to carry and operate with one hand. Simple, with fully-automatic operation, they have an intuitive interface with multiple operating modes, including FLIR’s exclusive InstAlert™, which turns hot objects bright red on screen, allowing law enforcement the ability to quickly see hiding suspects quickly.

“By enhancing situational awareness, the LS-Series helps law enforcement officers do their job more effectively in low light conditions,” said Tom Surran, FLIR Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. “Officers can expedite search and rescues, find hidden compartments, recover evidence, and enhance officer and public safety with the power of thermal imaging.”
