Trijicon have partnered with FLIR Systems, night vision expects, to develop a very compact thermal imager for ACOG scopes. The ATWS or Advanced Thermal Weapon Sight uses a 640×480 pixel uncooled camera.

While it is compact it is not light, weighing in at 1.5 lbs.

    The Trijicon ATWS is in fact the same scope as the FLIR Thermosight T60 ATWS i came to find out. I was quite impressed with the image quality and the body, its very rugged and waterproof, its made for military spec, I was planning on purchasing the AN/PVS-24 LR Long Range night vision clip on sight, the PVS-24 is awesome, but in shadows and in very dark nights, they are pretty useless, Im saving up my pennies for the T60 ATWS, i can use it day or night.

    I know this is an old thread , but if someone bumps into it like I did the following may be of some use:

    The FLIR T60 ATWS is available to civilians through some dealers and on ebay, the price seems to be between $17K - $19K for a new unit. A common theme with the sale of these scopes: US citizens only not for export, End users only.
    I didn't investigate whether a civi could by one directly from FLIR.
