Vectronix COTI Clip-On Thermal Imager

The Vectronix Clip-On Thermal Imager (COTI) was designed to provide its operator with the ultimate advantage in low/no light conditions by revealing far more than what is normally visible when using NVG devices. When paired with conventional night vision devices like the PVS-14, the COTI adds a layer of thermal detection that identifies both present and residual heat sources. Most night vision devices can only provide the operator with the ability to see in low light environments but that’s only part of the picture — the Vectronix COTI exposes potential targets that may be using some kind of cover that would normally defeat standard night vision capabilities. No matter the scenario, the COTI works with the NVG device to provide maximum situational awareness, allowing its operator to make well informed decisions on how the mission should proceed.

Due to the compact size and weight of the Vectronix COTI, the device is an excellent standalone thermal monocular when used with the optional eyepiece. The low power consumption of the unit, optimal sensor technology, and high performance optical components integrate to provide a state-of-the-art thermal optic that is ideal for a wide range of applications.

The Vectronix COTI features two heat detection profiles (White Hot & Black Hot) as well as three viewing modes (Full Thermal, Patrol, and Outline). These options ensure that the COTI can be configured to meet the demands of any scenario, whether hand-held or weapon/helmet mounted.

Night Vision Devices PVS-14

Currently serving with US and NATO troops, the PVS-14 Gen III Night Vision Monocular is considered to be the all around best multi-functional night vision monocular available. The PVS-14 is a dual purpose night vision device; it can be used as a monocular (hand held or helmet mounted) or it can be weapon mounted and used in combination with NVG compatible reflex sights (weapon mount sold separately). The adjustable gain of the PVS-14 ensures that the operator is able to fine tune the device to optimized performance as ambient light conditions change.

In the helmet mounted configuration the PVS-14 allows the operator to keep the night adapted vision retained in one eye while utilizing the illuminated eyepiece of the device to enhance their situational awareness. The battery housing of the PVS-14 now includes a feature that powers the unit down when the device is stowed in the upright position on the helmet.

This PVS-14 unit features a white phosphor image intensifier tube with a min. 1760 FOM makes the unit more affordable. The tube provides a 16.2 min. signal to noise ratio and resolution of 57lp/mm min.

The COTI excels in extreme darkness and when artificial light is at a minimum. I’m able to detect at ~200yds clearly for varmint sized creatures in open fields. If there is a high discrepancy in temperature — deer in heavy brush or a bird in a tree on a cold night — at 30-50 yds, they really stand out vs NODs alone. When a signal is detected, I can light up the area with IR illumination and positively identify up to ~100 yds with unmagnified NODs. In areas with high levels of artificial light, adjusting to optimize signal to noise is a little tricky and sometimes false positives can occur. For those using this in unknown terrain vs aggressive or hostile threats, I would keep usage to open plains or large interior spaces with minimal backlight. This is an ideal supplement for those patrolling a known area who can dial in settings with minimal adjustment.
