FLIR at night... looks like I've been jammed space balls style


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone, I've found the FLIR lately at night is reaaaaaalllly bad to spot things. I've tried messing with the brightness and contrast knobs but I can only get it to a barely passible stage, where I need to be fairly close (within 15ish miles) and zoomed fully in to discern if target is a tank... or a bush... I remember it being MUCH better. Is anyone else having this issue? Is there a technique to get optimal view? I don't mess with the auto ALG, only the physical knobs. Then they get so messed up that i'm basically blind.

I don't have a trk or pictures although I plan on doing some proper investigation... is it related to cockpit display resolution? etc

I would definitely disable ALG and use the manual Gain and Level controls. The knobs on the DDI only control the brightness and contrast of the display itself, not the video feed. The GRAY option is a great help for adjusting the video.
