Default Dirt cheap Raytheon thermal night vision

Many cars have or had thermal vision. You just need to do your homework and find a working unit at a local junk yard. Mount it on your BOL or car.

Thanks for the memory jog. I had seen those car commercials but never put 2 and 2 together.

I don't intend to be a jerk or anything, but The links you posted are for the cameras we make at my work for the automotive industry. Our company is FLIR Systems Inc. and Raytheon is our competitor for the non civil market. They do not make civil use cameras for the auto industry.
It would be appreciated if you changed your thread title to reflect the proper manufacturer.

Exo -- if you work for FLIR, can you set up a group buy for this forum? MilSight, maybe? Recon series? Heck, the SeaFlir would be a cool addition for our boat...

I wish I could set up a group buy, hell I wish i could buy our products myself.
I simply make the sensors that make the cameras work, and the sales dept of the company is in another state. It is a large corporation and I'm just a button pusher.
With that said, we do take pride in our work and I only posted due to the bad blood between the two companies and I hate seeing our competitor getting credit for all the hard work that many of my co-workers have put into this product.

FLIR, DRS right? I've always thought FLIR was a wing of DRS. I worked for Intevac in the mid 2000s and we had a joint venture with DRS. Pretty sure there was a FLIR sensor in the system. Non-commercial of course, part of the ENVG/DENVG program.

FLIR is not a wing of DRS, and I believe DRS purchases sensors from FLIR to build their products, as does a few other gov contracting companies.
There are quite a few companies out there that have FLIR sensors in them on both civil and gov sides.
