Night vision devices are apparatus useful for observations under conditions where there is insufficient visible light for normal visual observation. Night vision systems allow people to better see objects during relatively low visible light level conditions, such as at nighttime. Night vision systems may be classified as either passive night vision systems or active night vision systems. Passive night vision systems simply detect ambient infrared light emitted from the objects within a particular environment. Active night vision systems utilize a light source to illuminate a target area and subsequently detect the infrared light reflected off objects within that area. Active systems utilize laser or incandescent light sources to generate an illumination beam having near infrared light energy, and charged coupled devices or CMOS cameras to detect the reflected infrared light. Night vision devices typically include an image intensifier tube that converts infrared energy into visible light. Night vision devices are widely used in the military to provide soldiers, aviators and sailors with the ability to view objects at night or during other low light conditions.
