Photonis part of Exosens, is the world leader in the design and manufacturing of state-of-the-art image intensifier tubes for military, space, and commercial applications. 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-electronic 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.
Night Vision enables to operate safely in night and low light conditions. Only quality image intensifier tubes can provide the best night vision images. That’s why it is important, not only to choose a good quality night vision goggle, but to equip it with the best possible image intensifier tube. In modern warfare, individual operations under the cover of darkness underscore the tactical and operational importance of superior night vision capabilities. As a result, a Night Vision Device (NVD) is no longer being seen as a luxury item, but as essential gear which every combat soldier in the field must have. As greater numbers of NVDs are being placed in service, their performance, reliability and ruggedness have significantly improved. Easy to deploy and inexpensive to maintain, NVDs have become crucial in maximizing a soldier’s operational capabilities in combat.
