Profoundly Horrifying Song Lyrics: “night Vision Binoculars” By Passenger

ORNGE considers night-vision goggles for its aircraft

I just wanna walk you home. And I know thats it not right to creep. But I just wanna watch you sleep alone. Great last line. Watching somebody sleep is the ultimate stalker move, because nothing could be more disturbing than the image of a strange person in your bedroom just standing there staring until you wake up.

Night vision goggles for all troops in Afghanistan

“You don’t want to train with goggles that don’t let you see so well at night and then get a better goggle when you go into combat,” said Mr Scott “So we have rearranged our production at our plant in Virginia and we are now delivering 80% of that order by the end of this year, and the rest by the first quarter of next year,” he added. Scope out Night sights can be broken down into two main categories – thermal imaging and near infrared (IR) – both of which are in use in Afghanistan. The night vision goggles can also see heat signatures Thermal sights detect the heat signature produced by hot objects (people, animals and vehicles) while IR sights work on the same principle as human eyes, only they “see” light reflected off objects in the infrared spectrum, rather than the visible. ITT’s boss said his firm had produced a set that combined the two types, creating a night sight that could work “in any conditions”. “There are three conditions where image intensification does not work, but where IR does: In a cave, where there is zero ambient light; in a dust storm; and in fog,” said Mr Scott.

They are not only indispensable to air crew, but to people on the ground who depend on the ability of the helicopters to come and help them, he said. It means the helicopters can operate 24/7 and in deteriorating conditions.

Andrew McCallum, president and CEO of ORNGE, the provinces medical transport service, which operates both fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters to move patients around Ontario. Im looking at it with a positive disposition … I want to make certain we make a good choice, he told the Star in an interview. Questions about the safety of night operationsand the possible advantages of night-vision goggles were raised by the midnight crash of an ORNGE helicopter in Moosonee on May 31 that killed two pilots and two paramedics. Investigators have so far ruled out mechanical failure as a cause of the crash. One possibility is controlled flight into terrain, a situation in which pilots inadvertently fly into the ground, usually in conditions of poor visibility or darkness.
