multi Spectral Emitter MS-OMR

MS-OMR (Multi Spectral, Omni, Medium Range)

The Thermal-Beacon is an innovative and unique infrared emitter which radiates in the thermal spectrum (most efficiently at 3-5 micron) and does not emit radiation in the visible or the near infrared region. It is used as an identification device in the thermal spectrum region, for use with dismount soldiers, military vehicles, yachts, pilots, police SWAT teams, SAR, emergency services and mountain rescue teams. The MS (Multi Spectral) version allows the user to control the thermal spectrum of radiation from the following: Only thermal region (for thermal cameras), Only near infrared region (for light intensifiers and SLS) and Both thermal and near infrared regions simultaneously.
