Iphone Adapter For Night Vision Scope

Profiting from Night Vision Optics

The slide-on adapter precisely mounts a PVS-14A night vision scope over the iPhones 8-megapixel camera lens. With a single tap first responders can now securely upload high resolution night vision photos, video, geotag data and text to their remote counterparts in command and control.This adapter really is a game changer, says Firman, By integrating their iPhones and night vision scopes, professionals in the field can take the individual situational awareness that they currently enjoy to the next level – team-based shared awareness. For command and control, shared awareness supercharges their ability to plan, direct and control a networked emergency response. The iPhone Night Vision Adapter is constructed of machined, T6061 hardened aluminum alloy with an anodized Teflon hard coat. In addition to the PVS-14A Night Vision Scope, the adapter will mount a growing list of night vision and thermal vision devices, including PVS-7A night vision goggles, PVS-15 Night Vision Binoculars and FLIRs Recon M-18 and M-24 Thermal Imaging Monoculars.

Picatinny Love: ATN Night Vision Scopes

Image intensification was the original method of seeing in the dark, pioneered by RCA and Russian inventor and engineer Vladimir Zworykin, aka Father of the Modern Television. Focusing on just a small portion of the light spectrum, infrared, the devices could use the invisible to us light and convert it to visible light. Zworykins invention, having come out during the Great Depression, was marketed to civilians and resulted in commercial failure. It wasnt until WWII that night vision anything was put into serious production, but then by the Germans, who issued night vision scopes along with their StG 44s. Infrared imaging soon fell out of wide use with the improvement of ambient light intensification, which is pretty much what we think of today as night vision. First used by Americans in the Vietnam War, the scopes, while nowhere near as bulky as the first-generation infrared scopes, required an outside light source, and as such couldnt be used on moonless nights. Of course, now the things are orders of magnitude better at light intensification, run on a fraction of the power, and can be squeezed into a package the size of welding goggles. They have a couple of shortcomings over infrared optics, though. Infrared doesnt require any light source, as its generated by people as heat, and infrared radiation can pass through many things visible light cant. Which is why people still make em. Like light amplification technology, thermal optics have come a long way. Take, for example, ATNs most recent T50 ThermoSight : American Technologies Networks ThermoSight T50 is a mission flexible thermal sight that can be utilized as a weapon sight or a hand-held rugged imager for scouting, surveillance or covert operations. The ThermoSight T50 is compatible with standard day optics such as the Trijicon Advanced Combat Optical Gunsight (ACOG) Model TA31, 432 that maintains the boresight even through extensive rounds of firing, field of view and keeps the reticle calibrated. The longwave thermal imaging sensor provides crisp imagery through fog, smoke, dust to total darkness.

It’s a family of technologies that has no bigger fan or benefactor than our own Department of Defense. Given that the Pentagon recently announced major personnel cuts to the Army and major financial and equipment cuts to all branches of the armed service, in the meantime retaining full funding for the Special Forces, it’s not a major leap to expect our government to maintain clandestine operations at the current rate for at least the foreseeable future. Some would call this sort of thinking paranoid or forgive the pun “dark,” but I just look at it as recognizing a trend. And this is one we’ve been building towards for more than a decade now.

LN-DM2 Digital Night Vision Scope

It fits comfortably into the palm of my hand yet all the controls are conveniently placed for ease of use. I really don’t think there is anything to be gained by making these devices any smaller – this is just the perfect size! The second thing you will notice, as soon as you switch the unit on, is that you are looking at an entirely new form of night vision device. Gone is the green distorted image that you used to get with the more traditional, replaced by a crisp black and white finder image which is virtually distortion free. You also have complete control over the brightness of the image with the all new brightness control wheel. The built in LED Infrared Illuminator allows you to use the scope even in complete darkness.
