4G is specifically designed to address the stringent requirements of special forces operators. Get the best DRI* range and be the first to see.
*DRI = Detection, Recognition and Identification
|FOM (Figure Of Merit)||1800||2200|
|Limiting resolution (at center)||64||72||lp/mm|
|High Light Level Resolution (200lx)||55||lp/mm|

Only 4G can offer ultra-fast Auto-Gating, the smallest halo and unrivalled spectral range from ultraviolet to near infrared. Gain the unfair advantage in the darkest nights, in all terrain and operations.
How far can I see with my intensified night vision device (NVD)? This is the most common question asked by NVD users.
One of the most critical parameters for NVDs is the Detection/ Recognition/ Identification (DRI) range at various light levels.
The further distance the user can see, the better he can react as he will be the first to see.
Thanks to continuous investment in Research and Innovation, Photonis is bringing Image Intensifier Tube performance to levels where it had never reached before.
4G Night Vision Revolution is bringing 40% extra range of DRI than existing tubes available on the market (*).

ONYX - black & white vision
White phosphor (P45)
ONYX is the optional black and white night vision of Photonis.
Studies show that night-time scenes appear remarkably more natural in B&W versus the usual green. Photonis offers B&W night vision for those who want to have a natural vision at night. B&W provides clearer information about the contrast, shapes and shadows.

The simulators helps you comparing each product from our portfolio with different situations, options and light conditions.
It has been done to be as accurate as possible with gap of performance between tubes and the level of detail you could get using them on field.

16mm Image Intensifier Tube
16mm tubes have been designed to meet the SWaP requirements of the modern armies:
reduced Size, Weight and minimum Power consumption, with state-of-the-art performance.
The weight of the 16mm Image Intensifier Tube has been reduced by 30 grams compared to standard ANVIS 18mm tube while its volume size has been reduced by 40%.
4G Technology is a set of capabilities described by minimum specifications of modern Night Vision to deliver to end-users the highest performance in all field conditions.
4G Night Vision standards is defined by:
- An Extended Bandwidth of photon collection to deliver a consistently high image quality in all environments (from below 400nm to above 1.000nm)
- A FOM (figure of merit being Signal to Noise Ratio times the Resolution : SNR* R) above 1.800
- A Resolution always superior to 57 lp/mm even in the most polluted light environments such as urban areas or when entering a building where the light is suddenly switched on
- A Halo size never larger than 0.7mm around the brightest objects seen in the image to provide the highest details around the light sources
