640x480 v 384 x 288

The 640x480 pixel sensor produces an image with a larger field-of-view, more detail, and the ability for higher zoom magnification. These sensors are commonly fitted to military thermal optics, when high performance is critical.

Amorphous silicon (a-Si) thermal sensors are the finest available due to their ability to refresh at extremly high speed, and their high thermal sesitivity. These sensors are used for guided missiles, military aircraft, navel, and ground force applications, as well as for scientific research and space exploration.

Pulsar Helion is avalable with a choice of lenses which provide varying magnification and field-of-view suitable for a variety of tasks. The Pulsar Helion XP versionhas the option of interchangeable lenses, so that the user can fit whichever lens that best suits terrain and purpose.
