The Night Enforcer PVS-14 Fusion system is a helmet mounted or weapon mounted monocular featuring both night vision (I2) and thermal imaging (IR) capabilities fused into one compact system. Night vision can be used independently from the thermal or the two capabilities can be used simultaneously in a variety of modes including black-hot/white-hot overlay and outline. The Night Enforcer PVS-14 Fusion can be broken down into two components (PVS-14 and COTI) to be used individually, adding even more versatility to the unit.

Navy picks Creative Microsystems to design next-generation night-vision technology

Night-vision technology makes it possible to see light that is imperceptible to our eyes, and heat that radiates from the bodies of people and animals in the dark. “We can make the entire design super-thin,” Dr. Zhaohui Zhong, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at the university, said in a written statement. “It can be stacked on a contact lens or integrated with a cell phone.” The key to the new technology is a lightweight and super-strong form of carbon known as graphene. Ordinarily, graphene absorbs only about 2.3 percent of light that hits it — not enough to generate a usable infrared signal. But by combining two layers of graphene with an insulator, the researchers were able to boost the signal dramatically.

Night-Vision Contact Lenses That Use Infared Technology May Soon Be Possible, Researchers Say

(Reuters/USDA). Its SIGAR against the world right now:Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction John Sopko may make more noise right now than anyone else in the inspectors general community as he battles waste and fraud in a fledgling nation supported in large part by U.S. taxpayers, according to a Washington Post profile . White House mistakenly identifies CIA chief in Afghanistan:The White House inadvertently exposed the CIAs top officer in Kabul by including his name on a list of senior U.S. officials participating in President Obamas surprise visit with U.S. troops in Afghanistan, according to a Washington Post report . Congressional committees reject proposed defense cuts:Members of the House and Senate armed services committees rejected many of President Obamas proposed cost-saving measures for the Defense Department, including closing obsolete facilities, eliminating an attack-aircraft fleet and changes in pay, according to a Washington Post report .

(CMC) in Waitsfield, Vt., for the Micro Optic Low Light Imager (MOLLI) project to design next-generation lightweight high-performance military night-vision goggles. CMC electro-optics experts will measure the size and performance of their new night-vision goggles design against the current-generation AN/PVS-31 night-vision binocular. The new design at first should weigh no more than 17.65 ounces, and ultimately should weigh no more than seven ounces and as little as 3.5 ounces, Navy researchers say.
