  9. Improved Version of Solid State Night Vision Sensor

    SBC: Cyan Systems            Topic: AF151016

    ABSTRACT:The critical, limiting factor for night vision goggles (NVGs) is the sensor. Existing sensor technology for head-mounted systems do not provide the same performance, especially in low light conditions, compared to the latest image intensification technology. However, existing image-intensifier-based NVGs are limited by their size, weight, and cost of the image intensifier tube. This appro ...
