ATN introduces ThOR-320
Thermal Imaging Weapon Sight

( –- American Technologies Network has introduced the ATN ThOR-320, the smallest, most compact and lightweight in the ThOR series.

The ThOR-320 uses forward-looking infrared (FLIR) that detects heat to create the visible image. The ThOR-320 provides extremely clear images through total darkness, fog or smoke.

The ATN ThOR-320 is available in three different optical powers: 1x, 2x or 3x. The digital zoom option doubles the magnification. The ATN ThOR-320 thermal imaging sight employs digital controls and menu buttons that provide the user with a variety of aiming reticles and allow for the change in polarity and adjustment of image brightness of optimal image view.

The scope also comes with precision digital windage and elevation adjustments and a MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny Rail quick release mount. The multipurpose ThOR-320 can also be converted into a compact handheld viewer by removing the mount and adding a hand-strap (included).

And any time I see thermal imaging rifle glass these days, it is older generation stuff, and is still priced too rich for my blood.

Agreed, david b. Back in the mid 1970s, as a test project officer at US Army Tropic Test Center in the Canal Zone, I had some experiences with some of the first generation prototypes of thermal imaging devices. While they were "stone age technology" by today's standards, they were still damned impressive.

Colonel - I don't think we're the target market. I suspect this is strictly for guys who get their gear on 'the company dime'. I mean, it's half the price of a new car, or a down payment on a small house.

Yeah, I saw this in a recent issue of one of the many gun periodicals to which I subscribe. It is really a neat capability, but at the MSRP of $6599, I figure that I will not likely ever own one.

Thanks Jonnyonwheels. Sadly, at that price I have to leave it alone even if it comes with a rifle under it.

Press releases like this would be much more interesting to me if they included the company's website and the price of the item being discussed.
