Here’s X-Vision Optics’ announcement in full:

Wing, MN. X-Vision Optics’ all-new Thermal Reflex Sight (TR1) is by far the best bang for your buck when it comes to thermal units on the market today. With a detection range up to 1000-yards, this incredibly compact sight produces crystal clear images on its 1.63” AMOLED display. The TR1 also features a quick-release Picatinny mount and IP67 weatherproof rating so it will hold up in any terrain and tough weather conditions.

The Thermal Reflex Sight has a 1,000-yard detection range and a 500-yard recognition range. At a high frame rate of 25 Hz, the device captures sharp thermal images and smoothly tracks rapid motion in the distance. The objective lens is 13 mm in diameter and has a field of view of 23.6°×20.7°. This thermal reflex sight has a 1 to 4x magnification with a detector resolution of 400×300.

The unit has a 1.63” display with infinite eye relief and five color palettes including White Hot, Black Hot, Red Hot, Color, and Target Highlight. Each palette option will detect heat and display it in the selected color. The device is capable of manual or automatic shutter calibration, ensuring a clear image every time.

The thermal reflex sight provides both day and night use for hunting, scouting, and surveilling. This unit is capable of handling over 53 ft/lb. of recoil allowing compatibility with a large variety of firearms and crossbows. Additionally, the TR1 is dust and water-resistant to an international protection rating of IP67.

The visible 650 nm laser allows for rapid target acquisition and identification. The device has four reticle options along with four different reticle color options. The unit can save four sets of zeroing data, allowing for quick use and easy mounting on multiple firearms and crossbows as well as saving different ballistic models for the same firearm.

    The only limitation I see with the TR1 is the 25 Hz capture rate. A mini-reflex sight is going to be applied to more dynamic use scenarios, requiring less “lag” between what is shown in the display and what is actually down range.

    With the high resolution OLED displays and higher resolution thermal cores, both in compact form factors, the commercial industry is only a few steps away from producing a fusion of digital images from a day camera and thermal camera, at 50-60 Hz, on a mini-reflex type, heads-up scope.

    Digital fusion of the images requires much less hardware and expense than overlay of the thermal image onto the visible light images directly passing through a scope.
