Night Vision Is Finally Awesome Again (yes, Even Though These Goggles Look Super Dorky)

The new system addresses two of the most common requests for the technology from U.S. Air Force pilots: a wider field of vision and higher resolution images. The horizontal field of vision has been increased to 55 degrees, which expands to 82.5 degrees because it’s combined with a partial binocular overlap. That figure more than doubles the field of vision for other night vision systems. The HRNVS is a fully digital night vision solution, which allows it to process its image enhancement digitally, like your fancy DSLR with its uber-ISO settings. Night vision traditionally enhances images by capturing small traces of light, including the lower portion of the infrared light spectrum, but the HRNVS more advanced methods like “[enhancing] night vision imagery by contrast/edge enhancement, speckle reduction, symbology overlay and video recording, none of which are possible with existing night vision systems.” In addition to optimizing the field of vision, the HRNVS does a good job of getting out of its own way with improved Peripheral Obscuration, which basically means its parts don’t block your vision.

You know how in the movies, people wearing night vision goggles are easily blinded by bright lights? Myth. You can see just as well in sunlit rooms as you do pitch darkness. Yes, it seems a little brighter, but not absurdly so.

Night Vision Goggles for Kids

All infantry soldiers will be provided with a Laser Light Module Mk3 – a 244 gram state-of-the-art laser light that fits onto the SA80 rifle and can illuminate targets from up to 800 metres away to give more accurate firing in low-light conditions. The MoD has also invested in more than 4,000 additional head-mounted night-vision systems, which allow soldiers to operate in poor light or in dark tunnels and buildings, specifically for the Army Reserve More than 15,000 new ergonomic binoculars, 50 per cent lighter than previous models, have also been ordered to be used alongside the upgraded laser lights. Lance Corporal Herbline Biscette of 2nd Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland, who tested the equipment before it was delivered to forces while working for the Infantry Trials Development Unit, said: Being able to mark our targets from so far away means that we can prepare for the situations ahead and do the job with confidence. This kit also gets tested virtually to destruction; it gets dropped from height, submerged, blasted with sand, left out in minus 20 degrees all conditions that we might have to face when using it, so we know that it wont let us down. Minister for Defence Equipment, Support and Technology Philip Dunne visited the Infantry Trials Development Unit in Warminster, Wiltshire, yesterday to see the new kit being put through its paces. He said: The multi-million-pound investment makes clear MODs commitment to equipping our armed forces, including reservists, with world-class battle-winning technology.
