Night Vision Scopes

Night Vision Scopes are additionally commonly referred to as Night Vision Devices (NVD’s) and Night Vision Monoculars.

Since the early 1950’s, night vision in one form or another of technical configuration, whether Gen 0, Gen I, Gen II to today’s Gen III are typically utilised within Defence (land, sea & air) & Law Enforcement intelligence gathering scenarios where end-user needs to operate in low light conditions, only exploiting available ambient light or by supplementing with auxiliary invisible infrared lighting, typically either laser & LED.

A short History of Night Vision Devices can be found at

Night Vision Scopes fall into 3 categories: Night Vision Modules, Night Vision Goggles and Night Vision Devices.

NVD’s are typically used hand-held, head-mounted or in conjunction with camcorders &/or dSLR’s or night-time gathering.

Night Vision Modules are designed specifically for capturing very high resolution images when used with still cameras & camcorders.

Night Vision Goggles are low-light surveillance devices most often used when driving or in an ‘observation point’, although there are specific configurations designed for aviation applications.
