Night-vision Scopes Make Your Closet The Color Of Baghdad.

Night Vision Scope iPhone Adapter Supercharges Emergency First Responders

The new consumer models are less powerful than the military versions, but they’re more portable, too. They’re also more stylish, so you won’t look like that creep from Silence of the Lambs. Technology has made huge leaps since the first Gulf War, but the grunts in the field still wear the same AN/PVS-7 headsets manufactured for Desert Storm by Northrop Grumman. U.S.

High Sensitivity Spectroscopy for Characterization of Night Vision Compatibility (NVC) Filters

And, to keep customer costs down, the in-house engineering staff is always looking for opportunities to re-host testing on the more flexible and cost effective Automated Test Systems, or ATS, platforms, according to Viola. “These ATS can be programmed to test components from any number of different EO/NV systems,” he said. “Tobyhanna has the highest concentration of highly skilled and well-trained high-tech electronics mechanics supported by one of the most robust engineering staffs in the Defense Department industrial base providing Tobyhanna the capability to adapt and support new electro optics and night vision systems,” Schroter said. The shop also maintains a ball grid array solder flow station, a new way of soldering components to a circuit board. Connections are under the component rather than protruding out of the component. There is an X-ray inspection station for very precise replacement of components and screen for adequate solder flow.

Picatinny Love: ATN Night Vision Scopes

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.

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. The operator friendly sight is lightweight and portable and operates with single button controls for basic image adjustment. A rubber shroud ensures complete obscurity for covert operations by eliminating illumination of the operator from the viewfinder. The T50 uses a 320 x 240 VOx microbolometer, which must be something important otherwise they wouldnt list it as their first specification, runs for nine hours on three CR123 batteries, is dust- and water-resistant, (IP 68) easy to use with gloves, and weighs a pound and a half. As far as tactical hardware goes, its pretty hard to beat a rifle sporting both thermal optics and a fixed tritium-illuminated scope. Yep, and all itll set you back is a cool ten grand . Look, the real tactical stuff aint cheap. But dont think you have to spend a small fortune on night-vision. ATN doesnt just make super-expensive top-tier military-grade optics, they make hardware most anyone can buy, even if you have to to save a little for it.
