The Forward F455 uses proprietary software, cutting-edge electronic components and signal-processing algorithms to deliver one of the industry’s highest values of sensitivity in infrared spectrum (nighttime sensitivity). The result is a device offering flawless passive-mode performance in deep twilight, even night, without switching on IR illumination. High sensitivity in the range of 900-950nm makes it possible to use the Forward F455 with invisible IR Illuminators.
Using the Forward F Attachment allows uses to maintain the advantages of their day optics in the nighttime. Advantages include: longer eye relief as compared to that in the night vision riflescopes, conventional shape of the aiming reticle, continuous zoom, quick conversion from day to night hunting mode, preserving shooting style.
Forward F allows shooters to focus on quick target acquisition and shot placement in low-light environments without stressful, complex adjustments by utilizing a sequential layout of optical and electronic components designed to provide precise sight alignment and ultra-easy adjustability.
Attachment’s design ensures stability of the point-of-impact when re-focusing the attachment at various distances.
The Forward F455 is supplied with a detachable high power invisible IR illuminator (940 nm). Three adjustable IR power levels help choose preferred effective range and illumination level of an object observed.
High nighttime sensitivity, high resolution display and sensor, wide selection of brightness and contrast settings, quality optics and a powerful built-in IR Illuminator for operation in total darkness make the Forward F455 the perfect tool for detecting large quarry at distances of 450-500 meters.
Forward F455 front attachments feature high shock resistance allowing use with large caliber hunting rifles such as 9.3х64, .30-06, .300, .375. etc., as well as smooth-bore and airsoft weapons.
Forward F455 uses an advanced self-contained autonomous B-Pack power supply system.
The rechargeable battery IPS5 (5 Ah) fits into a special slot in the riflescope’s body without protruding and delivers over 5 hrs. of operation from a single charge in the maximum consumption mode.
Higher-powered IPS7 (6.5Ah), IPS10 (10Ah) and IPS14 (13.2Ah) Battery Packs are also optionally available. Quick-release and wireless design, long operating time are the major highlights of this power system.
Forward F455 starts up within three seconds after ON button is pressed.
Using the free, high-tech, iOS and Android compatible Stream Vision app, the Forward F455 connects via Wi-Fi to allow transfer of images and video to smartphones and other wireless devices in real time, stream footage to YouTube and other online video platforms (depending on model), and even use your personal device as a wireless remote control.
A smartphone, free mobile application Stream Vision and Internet access is all one needs to check updates and to install new firmware. This allows a hunter to
receive new features and bug fixes for a Forward F455 he/she already owns.
The attachment docks the proprietary adapter with the durable four-point bayonet assembly.
Pulsar line includes three models of adapters to mount on sights with a lens diameter of 42; 50; 56mm.
European companies such as Micron&Rusan and SmartClip offer a wide range of adapters to mount day sights on Pulsar attachments. This offer enables the Pulsar attachment to be mounted on various optic sights by numerous manufacturers.
SumLight function increases sensor sensitivity, which allows passive observation (with IR off) in low light at night. The software automatically activates algorithms, such as summing adjacent pixel signals, frame addition, thus increasing sensitivity while preserving sufficient image quality.
The Forward F455 is fully waterproof featuring an IPX7 level of protection. The device is able to operate in precipitation of any intensity and survive a short-term submersion.
Forward F455 is effective in use at low temperatures (down to -25°C). The frost-resistant AMOLED display features quick response rate and ensures a crisp image when viewing fast moving objects.
Interchangeable standard power supplies for Trail / Helion / Accolade / Digisight Ultra / Forward / Krypton / Lexion.
The Pulsar PB8I Power Bank is designed to extend operating time of Pulsar devices equipped with a microUSB port.
FN Cover Ring Adapters are special mounting units, that enable installation of Forward F attachments in front of the objectives of day optic devices (riflescopes, spotting scopes and binoculars). Adapters are supplied with a set of insert rings (the choice of the insert ring is defined by the outer diameter of the objectives housing of optic device). After installation the adapter stays constantly on the objective of optic device which allows installing the thermal of digital attachment in front of the objective swiftly. During the day when the attachment is not used, adapter serves as the mount for the protective cover (included in the package), which protects the optics of day riflescope.
