ELBIT SYSTEMS OF AMERICA - NIGHT VISION

WE'RE NOT GOING ANYWHERE, WE JUST GOT BETTER

Since World War II, U.S. and allied forces in over 99 countries have turned to us for a critical tactical advantage—night vision. Our legacy of innovation began with ITT, evolved into the digital realm with Exelis in the 21st century and continues today at Elbit Systems of America as we enter a new era of the networked battlespace.

Make no mistake, we’re not going anywhere. We just got better.

HOW NIGHT VISION WORKS
Complex low and no-light combat scenarios present unique challenges most of today’s night vision binoculars can’t meet, leaving warfighters vulnerable.

Learn how our systems give forces the decisive edge in the most uncertain conditions.

 
 
EMBRACE THE DARKNESS

For three generations we’ve illuminated your mission with expanded phosphor technology so you could defy the darkness.

White phosphor delivers images in black and white detail, which may appear more natural to the eye. In some situations, users claim seeing greater contrast between objects, along with higher image resolution at greater distances.

Green phosphor capitalizes on a wavelength which optimizes the brain’s perception of detail and contrast. Green falls exactly in the middle of the eye’s color spectrum, allowing users to better detect and interpret night time scenery.
