Night Vision Explained
 by:

Spy movies are often the first thing that comes to mind when people think about or discuss night vision technology. Do they actually work, or are they another form of moviemaking magic? In case you were wondering, the technology is very real and very effective. The standard set of night vision goggles will allow you to see a person standing 200 yards away on a cloudy, moonless night. Impressive, isnt it?

There are two different types of night vision technology. The first works on the principle of image enhancement. It works by collecting the minute amount of light contained in darkness, and amplifying it to the point where objects can be viewed. It even collects light from the lower end of the infrared light spectrum, which is generally imperceptible to the human eye.

The other way that night vision technology works is through a process known as thermal imaging. This process works by capturing the upper end of the infrared light spectrum. This part of the light spectrum is emitted in the form of heat, as opposed to light as we might recognize it. The warmer an object is the higher amount of this light is emitted.

There are some similar components in both night vision systems. Each of these systems is comprised of optics, some form of signal processing, and a viewing monitor. Image enhancement seems to be the prevailing technology contained in modern night vision systems. Both systems were developed, originally, for military use. In the United States, there are two classifications for night vision devices. The first is called MILSPEC, which refers to military specifications. The other is COMSPEC, which refers to commercial specifications.

This technology has been incorporated into a number of popular products, and put to use is many different ways. They are generally contained in three distinct categories; scopes, goggles, and cameras. Scopes are generally handheld or mounted on weapons, and are monocular. These are good for short-term viewing from a stationary position. Goggles are worn by the user and are binocular. As they are worn by the user, they are ideal for use over a longer period and during movement. Cameras are ideal for surveillance, as the images captured can be saved to a recording device or viewed on a remote monitor. This category also includes video imaging.

Night vision systems have come a long way since their early days of development. They are now used by law enforcement agencies and private investigators on a daily basis. They are also used by civilians for wildlife observation, security, surveillance, and personal entertainment. Night vision devices have become an integral part of the modern arsenal. Remember, not everything you see in the movies is make-believe.

Military Night Vision Goggles For Military With Waterproof Body And Mounting Mechanism By Abigail Taylor on December 04, 2010 0

Military night vision goggles are used by the army, navy and air forces of different countries, today such equipment is also used by the application of many law enforcement and security personnel (fire).

However, people can also buy night vision goggles for personal use, but usually do not have the same specifications you will find the military versions. Because the military night vision goggles have become an expected part of modern warfare is that they allow the user to see the pictures in the dark, which may not only be seen with the naked eye. Also the military versions have a special feature where they can focus on the user sees the image of each eye separately, which means that they are able to maintain depth perception when viewing images at any time.

How night vision works:

Most of the night vision goggles consist of image intensifier tubes, a waterproof body and mounting mechanism. Work in the near infrared bands to detect environmental light of the reflection is seen. image intensifier tubes for night vision goggles then extended to a weak light, using the photoelectric effect. Tube, the photons of light in to a flap that opens up the number of electrons. These electrons are then amplified Surge more electrons. A powerful electric field to pull electrons toward the screen mesh phosphor bronze, which produces light point of electron impact. This allows the screen to phosphorus produces a bright image.

Military night-vision goggles are generally used as artificial light during the military operations, and fight night. This increases the safety of soldiers, much as they can move without detected by their instruments of enlightenment.

The military uses two main types of night vision goggles:

* Image Intensifiers
Image intensifiers work by expanding the ambient light (flashlight enemy, moonlight, starlight) so you can see, as you would in the day. But the problem is that when a very bright light source appears, your picture overwhelmed. Their advantages are low weight, price, size and detailed images they bring, but consumes little electricity.

* Infrared Lenses
Infrared lenses to convert the infrared spectrum of visible light, but retail prices, which is low. He also has difficulty distinguishing between two objects that have the same level of heat (which is a question of who is the enemy and who is a friend). In some cases, night vision goggles can use infrared to see through walls.

These particular military night vision goggles take any light immediately in the vicinity of where they are, and expanded to increase the image of thousands of times using an image amplifier. night vision goggles work of the photoelectric effect, which is due to photons collide with the indicator plate. When photons hit the metal, then produces electrons which are then supplemented by further causing more electrons can be produced that ignites the screen in front of the user eyes. In some cases, all the user needs to illuminate the entire field of vision is a star high in the sky. You will often see these devices used to report on wars and the image we often see on television, where they used to be green.

asked Why do I dream about killer whales a lot?

I often dream about killer whales and dolphins, killer whales in particular. What does this mean. They are not always the main theme, but i see them in the sea while im on a boat, or a beach or a theme park. I often try to get in the water with them but i never can. I have often dreamt that i run along there backs while they are stationary in the water, like stepping stones. Can anyone shed some light?

And got the following answer:

Job 33 (Amplified Bible) 14For God [does reveal His will; He] speaks not only once, but more than once, even though men do not regard it [including you, Job]. 15[One may hear God’s voice] in a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on men while slumbering upon the bed, 16Then He opens the ears of men and seals their instruction [terrifying them with warnings], Killer
To see a killer in your dream, suggests that an essential aspect of your emotions have been cut off.� You feel that you are losing your identity and your individuality. Alternatively, this dream may represent purification and the healing process. You are standing up for yourself and putting a dramatic end to something. Whale
To see a whale in your dream, represents your intuition and awareness. You are in tuned to your sense of spirituality. Alternatively, it indicates a relationship or business project that is too enormous to handle. You may be feeling overwhelmed. The dream may also be a pun on “wailing” and a desire to cry out about something.
Water
To see water in your dream, symbolizes your unconscious and your emotional state of mind. Water is the living essence of the psyche and the flow of life energy. It is also symbolic of spirituality, knowledge, healing and refreshment. If the water is calm, clear, then it signifies that you are in tune with your spirituality. It denotes serenity, peace of mind, and rejuvenation. If you are splashed by water, then it represents your need to be revitalized and more expressive. To dream that water is boiling, suggests that you are expressing some emotional turmoil. It also may mean that feelings from your unconscious are surfacing and ready to be acknowledged.�You need to let out some steam. Sea
To see the sea in your dream, represents your unconscious and your transition between your unconscious and conscious. It also often represents your emotions. The dream may also be a pun on your understanding and perception of a situation. “I see” or perhaps there is something you need to “see” more clearly. Alternatively, the dream may indicate a need to reassure yourself or offer reassurance to someone.�It brings about hope, a new perspective and a positive outlook on life no matter how difficult your current problems may be.

To dream that you are lost at sea, suggests that you are drifting around in life without any Boat
To dream that you are in or see a boat, signifies your ability to cope with and express your emotions. Pay particular attention to the condition and state of the waters, whether is is calm or violent, clear or murky, etc. Are you “smooth sailing”? Alternatively, you may be ready to confront your unconscious and unknown aspects of yourself.

To dream that you are trying to jump off a boat, suggests that you want to confront those difficult emotions and approach your problems head on. direction.� You are feeling overwhelmed by emotions. Beach
To see the beach in your dream, symbolizes the meeting between your two states of mind. The sand is symbolic of the rational and mental processes while the water signifies the irrational, unsteady, and emotional aspects of yourself. It is a place of transition between the physical/material and the spiritual.

To dream that you are on the beach and looking out toward the ocean, indicates unknown and major changes that are occurring in your life. Consider the state of the ocean, whether it is calm, pleasant, forbidding, etc.

To dream that you are looking toward the beach, suggests that you are returning to what is familiar to you. Alternatively, you may be adapting or accepting to the changes and circumstances in your life.

To dream that you are relaxing on a beach, signifies that the coming weeks will be calm and tranquil for you. Your stress will be alleviated and you will find peace of mind. However, to dream that you are working on the beach, signifies a business project that will consume most of your time. Amusement Park
To see or be in an amusement park in your dream, indicates that you need to set some time for leisure and more enjoyment in your life. Consider how everything in the park is an expression of some aspect of yourself.� Alternatively, you may be too easily distracted lately.

To dream that the amusement park is empty or abandoned, suggests that you need to open yourself to more fun and adventure.

The Cat is Back asked What kind of assault rifles did the Founding Fathers use?

I’m guessing George Washington preferred to use an AK-47. Thomas Jeffersons’ favorite was probably an AR-15. John Adams probably liked the SCAR and John Hancock obviously loved an M16 with night-vision scope, 100 round mag, underbarrel grenade launcher and laser sights.
Actually the M2 Browning is a machine gun that first saw use in WWII.
No. They actually made their own canons.
They melted down metals from statues and bells, most famously that statue of King George in New York, to make canons.

And got the following answer:

The single shot muzzle loading musket which is what they based the Second Amendment on.
If they were to see the firepower available today they would wonder why we never updated it.

globug asked What type of sunglasses should i purchase?

I have had PRK surgery done and have 20 15 vision in both eyes for over two years now. But have trouble at night with the starbursts from lights and the reflection off the street/highway signs. The new headlights and new LED stop lights also blind me and make me get motion sickness. Can someone please recommend what type of lenses i need to get so that I can travel at night.

And got the following answer:

That is a hard one. The night time glare is an issue for many people. You could try a couple of different things. Some people do well with a plano lense that has a soft yellow tint with a premium AR coating. You do not want it to be over a 40% tint though, it would need to be light. Barely there. You can hinder your driving ability if it is too dark. Light light tan or rose might work for you too. These might help you with computer screen glare too. Ask the office where you had your surgery what they would reccomend and see if they think I am nutty. I work for an optometrist that does a lot of pre and post lasik work for Dr. Robert maloney in Los Angeles and this is what we reccomend. It seams to work. I have never done a refund!

tHAT fAT cOW asked If I join the 75th Ranger Regiment, what weapon will I most likely be issued?

What is the standard weapon that most rangers carry, also, do you get standard iron sights, or an optic?

How will my commanding officers decide what to issue me?

And got the following answer:

I was in the 82nd Airborne and was planning to enlist with the Rangers until I broke my back in combat during Desert Storm.
There are plenty of new Assault Rifles that I never got to try out but I would always pick the M-4 and have a Colt .45 ACP as a sidearm.
Of course this was back in 1991.
You should pick the Assault Rifle you are comfortable with. The AK-47 is the finest AR in the world at close combat. If you are a strong guy you may want to carry a SAW. I always preferred the M-4.
Rangers have a wide range of ARs they can choose from. Pick what works for you.
For a sidearm, screw the Beretta 9mm. Always go with a Colt .45 ACP. 9mms are for wimps.
As for Optics I have always liked the EOTech night vision screen. I put one of those on my AR-15 and I can’t miss.
I hope this helps.
You get to live my dream. Let me give you some advice that my DI passed on to me.
“If you can get through Ranger training, you are the Ultimate Killing Machine.”
Take that for what it’s worth.

gary b asked What is the best range for having a laser sighted into on a pistol/rifle?

I know the pistol would be fairly close, say about 15/20 feet, but the rifle i’m not sure. Thanks.

And got the following answer:

shlomo…..you don’t know what you’re talking about.

Lasers for handguns were created for use at night or inside of buildings (a typical room will seldom put you more than 20′ from your target) when it is too dark to clearly see the iron sights or when it’s necessary to “snap shoot” at the target because you simply don’t have the time to line up iron sights.

The laser on my AR-15 (that I use to hunt coyote at night) is sighted in at 100 yards. This particular laser I have is a SureFire infrared model that I use along with a PVS-14 night vision monocular sight mounted on the rifle. (You can’t even SEE a coyote or any other target for that matter clearly at 100 yards at night without night vision equipment).

Even military soldiers will seldom use a laser mounted on their battle rifle for the simple fact that the enemy can see their position very clearly if they are looking through any night vision device.

Attempting to use a laser outside during the day is a waste of time as the ultraviolet rays of the sun break up the beam at a very short distance from the laser itself.

Also keep in mind that a laser won’t make anyone a better marksman as the laser dot only shows the general area that the bullet will strike. The bullet itself doesn’t “lock on” to the beam and follow it to the target as some uninformed people seem to think it does.

Brian Trekk asked How to put a flash-hider on a Mossberg International 715T?

I’m looking at buying a Mossberg International™ 715T (in 22 caliber if your curious) and i love the look of the gun but hate how it does not already posses a flash hider. I expect to see one but don’t. After finding out that it’s possible i’d like to know how can I. A how-to-video, PDF manual, or any other helpful links are preferred.

And got the following answer:

From Mossberg’s web site, it appears that all of the flat tops have flash hiders. Should have got one of those. You will have to thread the muzzle and the best flash hider to use would be an AR-15 .223 caliber one. I don’t recall much muzzle flash from a .22 lr rifle at night so I don’t really think you need one. I shot my son’s 6″ revolver the other night and the muzzle flash with the short barrel was minimal and did not affect my vision.
