The world’s first firefighting hands-free thermal imaging system


Wyn Jones, Creative Director, Design Reality

Scott Sight is an industry first, award-winning hands-free thermal imaging in-mask, that provides the wearer with unmatched situational intelligence without the need to stop searching a room or put down hose lines and other vital equipment.

Scott Sight is a product of Scott Safety’s ‘Firefighter of the Future’ initiative created in 2014, which is an internal ‘lean startup’ team tasked to find new ways of improving firefighter safety and situational awareness through collaborative discussions with firefighters.

Since the 1990’s firefighters have used hand-held thermal imaging cameras to see through the thick smoke often encountered during fires. Advancements in thermal imaging technology have now reduced the size of the components and enabled new applications.
