Special Purpose IR LED Illuminator

Hover to Zoom

The Special Purpose IR LED illuminator (SPIR) is equipped with a high definition, asperical, telescopic LED illuminator. This eye-safe infrared device outperforms all other tactical IR illumination tools for brightness and range.

Ideal for sniper, designated marksman, overwatch, counter-sniper and free protection operations, the SPIR allows the operator to take advantage of clip-on night vision technology by providing powerful IR illumination to the maximum range of the night vision device.

The SPIR can also be used in conjunction with night vision equipped spotting scopes, making low light and no light surveillance and reconnaissance much more precise and accurate.

The SPIR can be deployed as a handheld or weapon-mounted IR illuminator

Is the beam of the spir ir illuminator visible to the human eye or can it only be viewed through night vision. Wondering if it can be used to light up area looking through a normal daylight scope at night for coyote hunting?

Asked by: Yasger
The SPIR Illuminator is not visible to the human eye. Night vision equipment is required.

Is there a video somewhere showing your SPIR product in use with a night vision scope? I have a ATN Xsight that I'd love to try your product with but the price is a bit much if I'm mistaken about it's usefulness and compatibility.

Asked by: EasyTarget
We do not have any, but I recommend checking out Youtube.
