The Forward F455S 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 F455S with invisible IR Illuminators.
To install the Forward F onto the front optical bell of a day sight, adapters of various mounting size are used. The adapter permanently attaches to the sight’s bell. This allows quick installation of the Forward F attachment in front of the lens for nighttime shooting. When the attachment is not used, the adapter accommodates a protective cap to protect the sight lens in the daytime.
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.
A new Pulsar Ultra-X940S removable IR illuminator emits 940 nm in the “invisible” range. The power level of the IR illuminator varies between 175, 350 and 700 mW depending on the required illumination intensity for the particular type of observation. The optical part of the illuminator provides flexible adjustment of the light flux direction for full and uniform illumination of the observation area.
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 F455S the perfect tool for detecting large quarry at distances of 450-500 meters.
The Pulsar BT Bluetooth remote operating panel is placed on the handguard or buttstock of a hunting weapon. With the Pulsar BT remote operating panel, the hunter only needs to make minimal movements to control the digital attachment features and can concentrate on hunting.
Forward F 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.
The highly sensitive CMOS sensor featuring 1280х720 HD resolution delivers a high definition image with precise detail rendering.
Rugged and light-weight magnesium alloy housing is designed to withstand recoils of high caliber rifles. Increased structural rigidity reduces vibrations during the shot and leads to enhanced ballistics while properties of magnesium alloy help to ensure better heat dissipation.
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 40; 42; 50; 56mm.
The Forward F are equipped with a recorder which enables video shooting and image capturing at the time of observation. High quality videos will also record sound so you can capture your full experience whilst using the device. High quality videos will also record sound so you can capture your full experience whilst using the device. Video and photo files saved in the internal memory can be transferred to a PC/ laptop or mobile device via wired or Wi-Fi connection.
Forward F uses an advanced self-contained autonomous B-Pack power supply system. The rechargeable battery IPS7 (6.4 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. Quick-release and wireless design, long operating time are the major highlights of this power system.
The built-in WiFi module connects the device with either Android or iOS smartphones using the Stream Vision 2 mobile app. This combination opens up a wide range of options: wireless device software updates, real-time image transmission to the mobile device screen, remote control digital functions and much more. Users registered in the application are provided with cloud storage space for photos and videos taken with a digital or thermal imaging device. An important feature is that the device is still compatible with the previous, first version of the Stream Vision application.
Forward F455S starts up within three seconds after ON button is pressed.
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 F 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 F455S 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.
