Extra Sensory Perception

Advances in thermal imaging and night vision equipment are making these great law enforcement tools less expensive and easier to use.

American Technologies Network

The big news from American Technologies Network (ATN) is the company's proprietary White Phosphor Technology (WPT). ATN night vision products that feature WPT offer the user a black-and-white view instead of the green of most systems. The company says the black-and-white image output provides clearer information about contrast, shapes, and shadows. WPT is now available in ATN's PVS14/6015 tactical monocular, NVM-14-WPT multifunctional pocket scope/goggle, Mars4-WPT and Mars6-WPT medium- to long-range weapon sights, and on the FIITS14-WPT thermal imaging system. ATN's WPT systems have an estimated tube life of 10,000 hours.

Autoliv

The NOPTIC thermal imaging camera from Autoliv is a vehicle-mounted system designed specifically for patrol cars. NOPTIC (Nighttime Optical Thermal Imaging Camera) has excellent panning and tilting capabilities.


It uses passive infrared sensing technology that is not affected by oncoming headlights. NOPTIC operates in complete darkness and can handle temperatures of 40 below zero to 176 degrees Fahrenheit. It also has a built-in lens heater that activates automatically when the mercury hits 40 degrees Fahrenheit.

ITT

ITT makes the vast majority of all image intensifier tubes used in law enforcement operations. Regardless of what brand is on your device, if it has a Gen 3 image intensifier, that image intensifier was probably produced by ITT. ITT also sells its own equipment through distributors and directly to large clients. The company's newest product, the Enhanced Night Vision Goggle, is not currently available to anyone outside of the military. It combines Gen 3 night vision with an IR thermal system in an AN/PVS-14 size monocular.

Insight Tech-Gear

New Hampshire-based Insight Tech-Gear is best known in law enforcement circles for its tactical flashlights and weapons lights, but the company also makes some really cool thermal imaging sights and monoculars. Its latest thermal monocular is the Mini Thermal Monocular-V2 (MTM-V2), which provides moving man-sized target detection at up to 500 meters and offers adjustable focus, unity magnification, and 2X digital zoom.


Other features on the MTM-V2 include a co-aligned, integrated marking laser, and a menu function for custom operation of brightness, gain, polarization, and calibration. Runtime for the MTM-V2 is four hours on two 3-volt lithium 123 batteries.
