When operating in dynamic light conditions, images provided through Image Intensifier Tubes show "halos" around the brightest spots in the scene such as streets lights or car headlights that are typically surrounded by bright round areas, disturbing the overall image quality and "whiting out" part or the entire image.
The smaller the Halo, the better the image quality: typically existing Image Intensifier Tubes have a halo size of 1 to 1.25mm on the tube image ouput.
INTENS™ delivers a dramatically reduced Halo of maximum 0.7mm on tube image output allowing to keep a "constant eye on target" that benefits missions in light polluted environments.
Under very low light conditions
one can detect a person at 15-20 meters with existing tubes
but with an INTENS™ tube that distance almost doubles (30-40 meters).
"Refueling has never been made so easy with INTENS™ tubes.
Night Vision goggles can be kept on during all flight duration"
