NIGHT VISION

Nothing less than a paradigm shift in “night vision” technology, SuperVision utilizes the most sensitive and sophisticated CCD sensor in the world to capture invisible moonlight and digitally process the information, in the form of pixels, into a sharp, clear picture on a high-resolution display.


Night glasses are telescopes or binoculars with a large diameter objective. Large lenses can gather and concentrate light, thus intensifying light with purely optical means and enabling the user to see better in the dark than with naked eye alone. Often night glasses also have a fairly large exit pupil of 7 mm or more to let all gathered light into the user's eye. However, many people can't take advantage of this because of the limited dilation of the human pupil. To overcome this, soldiers were sometimes issued atropine eye drops to dilate pupils. Before the introduction of image intensifiers, night glasses were the only method of night vision, and thus were widely utilized, especially at sea. Second World War era night glasses usually had a lens diameter of 56 mm or more with magnification of seven or eight. Major drawbacks of night glasses are their large size and weight.

SuperVision’s™ performance exceeds military-grade (Gen III) night vision in every aspect: greater resolution, better clarity, longer range and the most significant factor of them all, zoom capability. SuperVision’s patent-pending digital technology offers a 2x to 8x zoom magnification, something no other form of night vision can match. Military-grade night vision requires the installation of a cumbersome and awkward 3x magnifier, which then only gives one level of magnification at the expense of greater bulk and weight.
