Turn Your Iphone Into A Networked Night Vision Scope

The adapter can be used with several night vision and thermal imaging devices

The NViA slides onto the iPhone and connects with a variety of night vision and thermal imaging devices with a threaded mount. Once installed, the iPhone gives you a larger night vision display and allows you to record video and photos, zoom and adjust optic settings, geo-tag your footage, and send images to others. Outside of sheer novelty and awesomeness, I’d wager that the average Joe has little use for night vision and even less use for iPhone-integrated night vision. Instead, the tool is marketed toward first responders and other professionals as a means of sending critical data quickly and cost efficiently. Other potential users include sportsmen, surveillance professionals and broadcasters.

Snooperscope adds night vision to smartphone cameras

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.

Depot sustains military’s electro optics/night vision equipment

Now, a product called Snooperscope aims to bring similar technology to the masses through the use of smartphones and tablets. View all This isn’t the first time we’ve seen night vision for smartphones, as we’ve already covered the USNV Night Vision iPhone Adapter . The big difference between that and this new product is the size and the way it affixes itself to the mobile device. Snooperscope uses magnets to grip the back of the phone, and as such, it easy to remove. In addition to the magnets, Snooperscope also has a screw port on the bottom allowing it to be mounted on a tripod, on the dashboard of a car, and in other places. This opens up a lot of potential uses such as mounting it in front of a door for late night visitors. The reason the night vision scope is able to be used this way is because it connects to the iPhone or Android device using Wi-Fi.
