Photonis offers various solutions for defence related applications. For superior night time vision, you can trust our image intensifier tubes and low-light imaging products to help you see in the dark. Our power tube and microwave products which assist with communication and electronic countermeasures are a critical part of the way people communicate across the globe. 

Photonis Night Vision is the world leader in the design and manufacturing of state-of-the-art image intensifier tubes for military, space, and commercial applications. In modern warfare, night vision has become a key opto-electronic technology as more and more combats take place by night. Photonis night vision products are used by all NATO countries and are largely deployed worldwide. The company offers a wide range of options to customize the image intensification tube to suit a variety of applications facing today’s modern armies, including desert, aviation and urban under a wide variety of light conditions including dynamic lighting. 

Our wide range of Power Tubes for defence applications include Tetrodes, triodes, and associated circuitry. These Power Tubes are essential components in a number of radar and communication platforms and are manufactured to exact specifications for reliability and quality. Photonis also offers a wide variety of UHF military power tubes for defence which are compact, high-gain configurations which are environmentally controlled for mobile, shipboard, airborne and fixed station service. These power tubes remain a critical part of defence communications across the globe. 

Photonis manufactures both helix-type traveling wave tubes and state-of-the-art microwave power modules. Our traveling wave tubes are constructed using the industry standard of metal-ceramic and feature rare earth periodic permanent magnets for power-free focusing. Our mini and micro TWTs are used in combination with a high voltage power supply (HVPS) into a compact, lightweight unit called a microwave power module. These systems are typically used for electronic countermeasures, radar applications, airborne military platforms, rack mount amplifiers, communications and satcom. 

Photonis leads the industry through its innovation in low-light imaging products. Optimized for day-though-night lighting conditions, these digital imaging products support surveillance and security applications, industry and research projects and mobile use. We offer a wide variety of imaging products with high resolution, high frame rates and low light capabilities which can be paired with a number of interfaces and options to provide a superior low-light or day-though-night imaging solution.
