The Thermal-Eye X-50 is an essential piece of equipment for patrolling officers, investigators and detectives. Mission successes have increased thanks to the X-50 because its thermal imaging core detects the heat emitted by objects—thereby eliminating the need for artificial light. The X-50’s thermal imagery helps first responders locate and apprehend fugitives when visibility is most challenging—at nighttime.
