The Digital Sentry is Bushnell AR Optic's first night vision monocular. The 2x monocular is multiple carry—helmet and weapon mounts are included—or it can be used as a handheld device. The night vision is powered by an 850 nM LED IR illuminator with an intensity control for clear images in any level of darkness and a viewing area reaching out to 220 yards.

The F5032 also features optional adjustable diopter lenses, eliminating a law enforcement officer's need to change static lenses for personal or mission requirements.

TC35 Thermal Clip-On Sights

TC Series clip-on sights are the latest additions to N-Vision Optics' thermal optics product line. The TC35 attaches in front of the day scope on a MIL-STD-1913 (Picatinny rail), allowing the flexibility to use the sight on multiple weapons. The TC35 is fully collimated to maintain boresight with the day optic, eliminating the need to re-zero, when attached or detached from the weapon. The TC35 can also be used as a stand-alone weapon scope, with four reticle patterns custom tailored for individual weapons with corresponding zero, color, brightness, and contrast. Standard 2x and 4x digital zoom enables clear identification of targets before engaging.
