Utilizing a FLIR core, Torrey Pines Logic has developed an affordable thermal imager that is no larger than a mini red-dot sight. The T10 goes beyond weapons applications as it is both a commercial infrared camera as well as a "thermal red dot sight," designed to be equally useful in both applications/situations during all lighting conditions, including total darkness. There are three models available: two consumer models for residential/hunting/outdoor and a ruggedized military/law enforcement model.

The T10 mini-thermal imagers models T10-S (50° FOV, 9-Hz video), T10-N (25° FOV, 9-Hz video) and T10-M (50° FOV, 30-Hz video) offer a robust feature set commonly found in more expensive devices. All models offer on-board image processing, manual and automatic NUC (Non-Uniformity Correction) capability, temperature read-out, battery read-out and protection, auto power-save, and flexible mounting options: Picatinny rail/wrist strap/user-handle mount and more.

The 9-Hz units are ideal for hunters and commercial uses and are export ready and the 30-Hz units support more sophisticated domestic user needs. For law enforcement and military, the wide angle units augment agency capabilities conducting search operations.

The standard models (T10-S and T10-N) and military model (T10-M) differ in a number of ways: The military model refreshes at 30 Hz versus 9 Hz for the standard models, has a protective shroud, and utilizes a quick detach mounting system. The T10-S and T10- N weigh 50 grams without a battery, with the more rugged T10-M weighing 109 grams. The weapon mountable T10-M is durable enough to handle high-recoil firearms such as a shotgun firing high-powered slugs. All models utilize a single transverse mounted CR123 battery with 8+ hours expected life. The T10 meets IP67 waterproofing standards, which is 1 meter for 30 minutes.

The range of the thermal display is excellent considering its small form factor. All models have multiple display modes: white hot, black hot, NV green, and color. The field-of-view for the T10-N is 25 degrees while the T10-S and T10-M sport a 50-degree viewing angle. All three models of the Torrey Pines Logic T10 are available, with the standard model T10-S at $499, the T10-N costing $599, and the ruggedized military model T10-M priced at $699.
