Date: October 2013

Publisher: U.S. Dept of Homeland Security

This Night Vision Technologies Handbook provides emergency responders, law enforcement, and security professionals with a reference on night vision technologies, capabilities, and limitations. This handbook provides introductory-level information on the technologies and components for night vision devices (NVDs), as well as an overview of their applications. Efforts to acquire or use an NVD should be undertaken only in consultation with organizations or individuals experienced in this technology. This handbook examines NVDs and technologies for applications that include law enforcement, natural resource management, fire and rescue, emergency management, engineering, medical, and security services. The devices described include the following: Image intensifiers (I2); Thermal imaging cameras; Integrated night vision systems (INVSs); and Near-infrared (NIR) illuminators. This handbook also discusses NVD operating principles and products, and the performance factors and other attributes to consider when selecting an NVD. In addition, this handbook provides a history of NVDs, a list of accessories for use with NVDs, and a brief discussion of emerging night vision technologies. A vendor/product matrix is provided to identify the products found in the market research. The matrix is not intended to be an all-inclusive list of equipment suppliers or products, and NVDs under development or restricted to military use are not included in the matrix. Definitions of terminology commonly used and/or associated with night vision technologies are provided at the end of the handbook.
