The C-NITE Tactical Drivers Night Vision Aid provides focused infrared (IR) illumination tuned to support night vision systems within the 940nm wavelength.
Used at night in tactical situations, ordinary IR headlights can inadvertently illuminate you or your comrades. Therefore, they can even assist the enemy in identifying and targeting friendly forces.
C-NITE is a significant new aid to vehicle crews using Night Vision Goggles (NVG) or other image intensifying equipment. C-NITE provides a dedicated twin beam for near and far field illumination that reduces the IR illumination spread and the resulting risk of detection by enemy forces.
The unit has been designed to give flexibility to the user when specifying the power and composition of LED and lens configuration.
Users can set the range of the LED depending on requirements, and LEDs are covert 940nm. Moreover, users can choose the power options to best suit the platform requirement. Further, a wide variety of lens configurations are available to tune the output.
The EMC emissions of the IR beams do not disrupt or interfere with the on board communications and vehicle management systems.
Depending on the mode of operation, these devices emit highly concentrated non visible infrared light. This can be hazardous to the human eye. Please follow the safety precautions given in IEC 60825-1 and IEC 62471 when using.
