Armasuisse chooses 4G night vision
Featured Product from PHOTONIS Technologies SAS
With the choice of Photonis’ 4G image intensifier tubes, Switzerland made their choice for this state of-the art image intensifier like many other European countries. This night vision modernization program is part of the Swiss ‘Armeebotschaft 2019’ and is one of the larger night vision projects in Europe recently. Within this project Photonis is selected together with Safran Vectronix to deliver more than 8.000 NYX night vision bino goggles for the Swiss Armed Forces.
The goggles will be equipped with 18 mm high performance 4G image intensifier tubes through a four-year program. This technology increases the ability to locate and engage threats and to operate in all night conditions. The 4G standard is the latest technology in intensified night vision and is specifically designed to address the stringent requirements of special forces operators and only 4G can offer ultra-fast Auto-Gating, the smallest halo and unrivalled spectral range from ultraviolet to near infrared. 4G provides an edge over adversaries in the darkest nights, in all terrain and operations and operators can gain from the best DRI range possible.
