Pulsar’s focus on emerging technologies, product development and design innovations, and walking the leading edge of the thermal and night vision industry, is as undebatable as it is also unrelenting. Pulsar Chief Marketing Officer, Liudas Abisala, underscores these truths with the company’s commitment. “We pride ourselves in being the innovation leaders in civilian thermal vision technology.” Pulsar Thermal & Night Vision: New for 2022!
Of course, Abisala emphasizes Pulsar’s current state and ongoing pursuit of industry-leading innovations with more choice words, stating, “Our status is constantly confirmed by the number of attempts to copy our product designs, features and even our communications.”
He adds, “The benefit is simply that constantly pushing ourselves keeps us focused on research, development and implementation of the newest technologies, as well as end-user focused solutions. Once again, for 2022, we are proud to introduce a long list of new devices to widen the gap between Pulsar and our competitors.”
That said, Pulsar leaps ahead in 2022 with a handful of advanced thermal and night vision products. These products are well worth industry buzz at SHOT Show and well into the calendar year. Beginning with a common theme throughout Pulsar’s new lineup, internal and external battery life has been extended via more efficient processing.
