Electronic Weapons: Night Vision Dumps Analog

Israel Researchers Look to Bring Night Vision to your Ray-Bans

Recently the advances have been faster and more revolutionary. The latest one uses a digital light amplification technology. Until now light amplification was analog.

Soon You Can Turn Any Sunglasses Into Night Vision Goggles

Since most night vision devices are extremely bulky this invention will prove to be one of the most helpful tools to mankind. For this project Professor Gabby Sarusi of Ben Gurion University will lead a group of researchers to create a thin coating that will turn invisible infrared light into visible light for night vision glasses. This project is expected to take five years for completion. And unlike other expensive and bulky night vision systems, Sarusi and his team will develop a layer one micron thick that can be applied to any glasses.

Search and Rescue to purchase thermal imaging night vision spotlights

Just like we do with the night vision right now. According to Clarmont, when he did the research on the spotlights, he found they had been used for house fires. The spotlights were able to locate a heat signature of individuals inside, which allowd them to be saved. It’s not very detailed. It’s not like an X-ray, where you can see everything. It is more just a heat signature, it’s just a blob, and you know that through the training the blob is a person, Clarmont said. The advertisement for the spotlight said that in a clear area like a field, the light worked up to 1,000 feet.

He explains that their device will make every photon count and use organic light emitting diode (OLED) for electrical current to visible light conversion. Eventually, Sarusi explains, the emitted light from the OLED will be collimated to the observers eyes using a thin layer micro-collimator array. The overall thickness of such a layer will be just a few micrometers that can be applied easily on any glasses. High likelihood of success Sarusi spent 17 years at an electro optics company and was in charge of developing the next generation of thermal imaging night vision systems. Sarusi also developed airborne and space-borne cameras for Israels aerial photography, Ofek satellites and hyperspectral airborne intelligence systems. Sarusis team is one of only two recipients of a major grant from the Israel National Nanotechnology Initiative (INNI). The five year Focal Technological Area (FTA) proposal was recently approved by The International Nano-Science and Technology Advisory Board (INAB).
