Photonis was awarded a contract to provide the German Army 1,700 night vision binoculars with state-of-the-art 4G high figure of merit (FOM) image intensifier (I2) tubes that will be integrated in Theon Sensors' new NYX binoculars, to increase night driving manoeuverability of the German Army.
During night operations it is most important for a driver to have the best depth perception possible to judge distance and relative motion. “Photonis is proud to deliver its state-of-the-art I2 technology to the German Armed Forces to increase their night driving manoeuverability and safeguard their operations at night,” said Frederic Guilhem, Executive Commercial Officer Night Vision at Photonis.
4G I2 technology will increase the ability to locate and engage threats under all night conditions. 4G is specifically designed to address the stringent requirements of Special Forces operators, offering ultra-fast Auto-Gating, Photonis' smallest halo and great spectral range from ultraviolet to near infrared.
