New! Powered Thermal Shooting Target


Do you own a thermal sight ?  Are you frustrated with the lack of thermal targets to practice with?

IR.Tools has been innovating passive thermal targets for your thermal sights for the past 10 years.

And we are excited to now offer a powered thermal target built with Upright Thermal film and a specially designed heated technology. 

This special powered thermal target maintains a superb thermal contrast and is nearly indestructible.

The rubberized heat technology material built into the target to provide the extra heat needed for a distinct contrast.  Looking through your thermal optics you will see your image “pop-out” either black or white, depending on the palette setting of your sight.

The durability and contrast of this powered target are unrivaled.

Even Fort Bragg Special Forces who train with the rubberized powered thermal target are impressed with the target’s longevity.

And why do you need them?

If you own or work with a thermal weapon sight, a thermal target is valuable for 3 reasons. 

1. Accelerate your learning curve with your sight. 

2. Zeroing your weapon is easier and more precise.

3. Good practice will prepare you for those life-saving or kill shots. 

A paper target will not give you the feedback you need to train with your thermal sight. 

A thermal target is different because it reflects the heat energy in the target’s surroundings and creates a life-like contrast. The different temperatures in the scene appear in different colors. The target is always a different temperature. 

A paper target cannot do this.  It will appear the same color as its surroundings. 

Depending on the palette settings of your sight, the contrast will be white hot, black hot or a color contrast blend.
