Dedicated infrared night vision aid that reduces illumination spread and the risk of detection by enemy forces.

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 and 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.

IR specification

The unit has been designed to give flexibility to the user when specifying the power and composition of LED and lens configuration.

The LEDs are covert 940nm units with a range that can be set depending on requirements. Power options can be chosen to best suit the platform requirement and 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.

Safety advice

Depending on the mode of operation, these devices emit highly concentrated non visible infrared light which can be hazardous to the human eye. Use of products which incorporate these devices have to follow the safety precautions given in IEC 60825-1 and IEC 62471.
