Zeroing Targets

Our patches are available in both covert and non-convert variants. Each patch is built using one or more infrared films: IR reflective – covert or non-covert, Thermal – covert or non-covert, and Photoluminescent – non-covert. All IR reflective patches are built with our proprietary SandStorm Technology™ for unmatched durability and glow in the field. 

IFF Active Thermal Beacons

Partnering with Thermal Beacon, IR.Tools is the exclusive distributor of the active thermal beacon in the U.S.. These beacons utilize advanced multispectral technology, emitting signals across multiple spectrums while remaining invisible to the naked eye. Designed for optimal performance and compactness, our beacons provide an additional layer of security in critical operational environments.

Vehicle Thermal Markers

Deployed on military and law enforcement vehicles, our thermal film markers and panels enable rapid identification and tracking to enhance situational awareness. Extreme Thermal film markers withstand harsh weather conditions and provide clear identification even in adverse environments. Ideal for aerial and drone operations, our markers ensure precise communication and coordination, minimizing the risk of delays and errors.

Control Points

Custom-designed thermal markers tailored for hard-to-reach locations, providing stable reference points for various operational scenarios. Whether establishing secure landing zones or monitoring critical infrastructure, our control points offer enhanced visibility and situational awareness, particularly in low-light conditions.
