Image intensifier tubes for night vision

Image intensifiers are devices that intensify or amplify low light level images from natural sources, such as starlight or moonlight, or from artificial sources such as street lights or infrared illuminators. The light passes through several internal components to multiply the existing light several thousand times, producing a much brighter image that can be seen by the human eye.

Over the years night vision has become a key opto-electric technology in modern warfare as more and more operations take place by night. Photonis offers a variety of different options so that users can find an image intensifier tube that will work for their specific mission or operational requirement.
