Thermal Acquisition Monocular

UDME and his associates currently features the TAM-14 Thermal Acquisition Monocular system designed to meet the needs of the individual user for ground based night operations. The system has set the pace for future hand held thermal devices that are head or helmet mountable as well as weapon mountable while using standard 3 volt Lithium batteries. Controls are conveniently located for right or left handed operation.

The TAM-14 is a multi-purpose system using the latest in miniature thermal sensor technology combined with the new organic light emitting diode (OLED) display to provide a superior stable image in the smallest package available.

The system was designed to maximize versatility by quickly adapting to weapons, head gear, helmets, video output and more. Incorporating in-service head and helmet mounts designed for the AN/PVS-7 and AN/PVS-14, the TAM-14 is compact, lightweight and intuitive to operate.
