It utilizes a single, 18mm ANVIS type GEN II+ or GEN III image intensifier tube to provide crisp, clear images under the darkest conditions. The single tube/single eyepiece approach to night vision missions is based upon the proven concept that independent use of each eye maximizes the ability of the user to operate under a wide range of low light conditions. With the RANTEL, the user retains his full peripheral vision in the unaided eye in conjunction with the 40 Field-of-View offered by the night vision device. The RANTEL can be hand-held or installed on a variety of standard and optional head mount/ helmet mount assemblies for hands-free use.

At CLEO: 2014, Rasmussen will describe how near-infrared fluorescence laser imaging (NIRFLI) allows lymphatic structures and flow to be measured quantitatively, including in the fine vesselsa dramatic improvement over lymphoscintigraphy. In addition, NIRFLI will be safer and less expensive than existing technology. To acquire images of the lymphatics, NIRFLI uses indocyanine green dye, which is injected in tiny amounts into the skin of a patient. The dye is absorbed into the lymphatics and when illuminated by the laser diode, it emits a fluorescent light, which the device amplifies with a military-grade image intensifierthe main component in night vision gogglesand then captures with a commercial CCD digital camera.

Rockwell Collins and Elbit to provide night-vision capability to Navy pilot head-up displays

A fluorescent dye and commercially-available laser diode and military-grade night vision devices are used to visualize the lymphatic capillaries. Clinically, the device promises dramatic improvements in patient care because it allows even tiny lymph vessels to be imaged, and it can quantitatively measure fluid flow throughout the lymphatic system — two types of measurements that are impossible with today’s technology. At CLEO: 2014, being held June 8-13 in San Jose, California, USA, UTHealth scientist John Rasmussen will describe how they have taken this technology, which they call near-infrared fluorescence lymphatic imaging (NIRFLI), from bench-top development to various clinical applications. “We feel that the ability to see the lymphatics will provide opportunities to revolutionize lymphatic care,” Rasmussen said.

Lasers, night-vision technology help improve imaging of hidden lymphatic system — ScienceDaily

U.S. Navy combat aircraft experts needed night-vision capability for helmet-mounted head-up displays for high-performance fighter-bomber aircraft. They found their solution from a partnership of Rockwell Collins in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and Elbit Systems of America in Fort Worth, Texas — otherwise known as Rockwell Collins-ESA Vision Systems LLC.
