Armasight Announces The Contractor Thermal Optic

Trailblazer and Category Leader in Thermal and Night Vision, Armasight debuted the “Designed & Built in the USA” Contractor series of weapon mounted thermal optics at SHOT Show 2022. The Contractor line is the first thermal optic on the market that is powered by the new ArmaCORE™ Thermal Core technology, which brings 12 micron pixels, high performance imaging, and a dynamic feature set to the system.

The Armasight Contractor is a feature rich thermal weapon sight that brings cutting edge capability in a lightweight yet durable metal alloy housing. Built as a MIL-STD military-grade thermal scope, the Contractor can be used in all environmental conditions to improve object detection in low contrast daylight, total darkness, or through smoke, haze and even light fog. This long eye-relief sight is comfortable to use and features an array of advanced technologies that will maximize your weapon efficiency. The Contractor offers a 60 Hz 1024 x 768 display resolution, USB and WiFi video streaming, 4 hours of onboard video recording, and low battery consumption from standard CR123A batteries.

The Contractor features eight user-selectable reticles and six color palettes, allowing for a wide range of customized options to best suit the specific needs presented by the environment or mission specific needs. The Contractor also comes equipped with a digital compass, inclinometer, and stadiametric reticles that help users calculate distance, direction, and angles.

Advanced hardware is in place to be able to take advantage of emerging technologies to expand stability and functionality with standard firmware updates. The Armasight app, available on iOS and Android, allows for remote control of the unit, photo and video capture, live streaming, GPS location and updates to the unit. Updates can also be completed through a USB connection within the Contractor.

The Contractor is available through brick & mortar and ecommerce dealers now.
