Move on to the thermal imaging clip-on system with the collaboration of advanced thermal technology and industry-leading sensor system to deliver unbelievable performance and hunting experience.
Like ATN, FLIR, and Pulsar, Armasight also comes in the line of producing quality and rugged thermal products. They are manufacturing both night vision and thermal products that aid for multiple professional and semi-professional purposes.
In that way, Armasight recently designed the Apollo-Pro MR 336 Thermal Imaging Clip-on System for effective hunting in day and night.
This clip-on system provides precise and detailed targeting by withstanding in worse atmospheric conditions such as heavy snowfall, rain, haze, fog, and smoke.
Let’s move into the review of the Armasight Apollo-Pro MR 336 Thermal Imaging Clip-on System.

Apollo Pro MR 336 Clip-On System is constructed with professional-grade materials to perform in the harsh weather and terrain conditions.
The unit is suitable for all your thermal imaging requirements, especially the imaging system is intended to construct with standard 20/50-design.
The device’s body is outfitted with waterproof material to prevent corrosion and it has the ability to sink into the water up to 20 meters in about 2 hours.
Besides, it’s built with 0.50 BMG weapon shock and recoil to protect the device from the impact of any shock.
The Apollo Pro Series Day/Night Clip-On Thermal Imaging Device is equipped with the uncooled core of updated technology, available at various price points and options.
Developed based on signal processing, conventional core electronics, large-format collision eyelid (infinity centralized), the device will definitely cater to a wide variety of applications.
Used for military and commercial purposes, the Apollo Pro Clip-On unit features a long-wave infrared feature with uniform magnification to enhance night vision.
It is a piece of great thermal equipment for skilled snipers as it has a variable magnification range and can be mounted directly in front of the sight without removing the daylight.
This clip-on thermal system features a weapon display that is standalone and comes with the uniform magnification range of 1X.
One of the great features of this Apollo Pro Thermal Imaging Device is that you can use it as a handheld thermal monocular.
The Armasight clip-on system consists of laser range-finder and multispectral laser with the unit to offer unconditional support and ultimate capabilities to the system.
All of the supplementary features are fitted on Apollo’s MIL-STD-1913 rail for providing input power and overlay to the unit when needed.
For providing video-in imagery, the Armasight Apollo Pro MR 336 Thermal Image Clip-On Weapon Sight has the multi-pin (9-pin) connector which is also used in the place of external power access.
Periodically, the unit needs software update directly, at that point, this multi-pin connector feeds the portal for it.
Nowadays the 9-pin connector is available with new revisions to allow the user to directly download updates.
This enhanced professional weapon scope is built with three different sized military-grade optical lenses that are 30mm, 50mm, and 100mm respectively, all of which come with a German finish.
Such an improved feature of the Thermal Image Clip-On Weapon Sight creates the performance options the user needs at different angles and improves the user experience.
MR 336 has 8 different scenarios for utilizing this monocular
It has 4 different options for setting the temperature
Images & Videos
For delivering high-quality HD images, the Armasight Apollo-Pro is built with FLIR TAU-2 technology, thereby you can get the images at two different formats such as 336×256 pixels and 640×512 pixel.
Users can directly transfer the data from Apollo Pro MR 336 to PC/Tablet with the wireless capability of Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.
For future purposes, you can also interface with many iOS/Android-based smartphones. This is why the device is called the user-friendly clip-on system.

Apollo Thermal Image Weapon Sight has an integrated inclinometer for providing collateral functions which is quite simple to handle.
Likewise, it consists of a digital compass that estimates the range of targets and delivers the perfect orientation of the object you follow.
You can manipulate the unit with the aid of a wireless remote that is included in this package, that comes with 5 buttons to operate and modify the settings of Apollo Pro.
This remote control feature allows you to watch optimized video-in imagery in the SVG A 800×600 OLED display without removing hands from your weapon.
The installation of Apollo Pro Weapon Sight is effortless with the feature of the quick-release locking mechanism, which is also reliable and repeatable.
As I said at the outset, this innovative device does not use 8 or 4 types of reticles like most other thermal devices but rather handles the “no reticle/reticle off” mode.
Rather than the usage of multiple color reticles, Apollo Pro combined three most prominent features such as software algorithms, the collateral performance of a standalone defense sight and solid-state technology to get the better result.
Conventional ballistic drums are implemented in multi-color reticle devices but they cannot deliver boresight retention.
But through the unification of three key features, the device ensures aperture retention and delivers supreme contrast, automatic boresight adjustment, and high-level precision.
The Apollo Pro has the 1X weapon sight which is gradually increased as 1X to 2X to 4X and finally ends with 8X electronic zoom.
This electronic zoom tracking provides a high level of accuracy to the device, but in this e-zoom (electronic zoom) only provides 640×512 pixels format. And you can’t change the relationship of the reticle from point-of-aim into point-of-impact
Unlike other thermal devices, the Armasight Apollo Pro Clip-On Thermal Imaging Device has a unique dual battery option.
The package comes with four 3.0VDC 123A batteries that can be used for more than an hour on the device, furthermore, the user can utilize four 1.5VDC AA batteries instead.
User-Adjustable Imaging Tools
Active Contrast Enhancement (ACE) – Optimizing the smart scene based on dynamic adjustments
Second Generation Digital Detail Enhancement (DDE) – Diminish noise and correcting the edge sharpness of the images
Smart Scene Optimization (SSO) – Optimizing the overall visual activity for delivering enhanced image background
Information-Based Histogram Equalization (IBHEQ) – Automatically modify the gain of the camera to excludes the pixels determined by the device
Linear Automatic Gain Control (Linear AGC) – Automatically adjust the range of gain to deliver the appropriate output and stronger the image signal
Silent Shutterless NUC (SSN) – Can extend the periods of a mechanical shutter and further diminish image noise
User-Controlled Manual Non-Uniformity Correction/Flat-Field Correction (UCMNUC/FFC) – For permitting you to interrupt or manually stimulate scheduled UCMNUC/FFC function
The only drawback is a price range that ordinary people can’t afford, however, the price is acceptable based on its unique performance and output.
The Apollo Pro Clip-On Thermal Imaging Device is an excellent thermal device available in the market today because it is a sophisticated and versatile device available not only for hunting applications but also for swat teams, skilled snipers, law enforcement, military, and more personal purposes.
So be focused on choosing a feature-filled thermal imaging clip-on system that provides a great experience that meets all your needs.
