The NOPTIC camera is a small thermal camera that is covertly mounted outside of your vehicle on the A-pillar spotlight and viewed via your in-car computer or via a separate video monitor. NOPTIC gives you the ability to ‘see in the dark’ from inside the patrol car and with the critical value of added officer safety.
How often have you wished you could see better in the dark?
Or, turned your spotlight on only to light up the front of the bushes?
Or, turned your spotlight on only to learn that it’s usefulness as a light fizzles out after 75 yards or so?
Unlike “image intensifiers” that require a little light (the green image night vision) our night vision camera is a “Thermal Imager” and doesn’t need any light.
It does not emit an IR signal and cannot be blinded by lights. It has a far greater range than an “active IR” system however looking for an object the size of a person limits the range to 400 – 500 yards because of the pixel size.
It allows the officer to monitor from inside the safety of the patrol vehicle with the window up. Not to mention, you can’t accidentally leave it in the office like a handheld unit.
Be able to pan and tilt quickly with a camera that is perfectly aligned. None of the moving parts are exposed or at risk of failure due to the weather.
Compared to handheld and other mounted devices it is the best choice for your wallet.
