ATN (American Technologies Network),
an established leader in the world of night vision and tactical optical designs, offers many options for the professional, military, law enforcement and discerning user of night vision devices. Their products are designed with diligence and technological advancements that have made them a world leader in providing sporting and tactical optics. Their high quality optical designs are loaded with user friendly features, and offer value and functionality that deserve recognition and merit.
ATN's Night Shadow-2 Night Vision Biocular offers you the advantage of enhanced depth-perception, while significantly extending the time-frame for comfortable long-term nighttime viewing. Utilizing two oculars and a single multi-coated objective lens, this high-powered NVD pulls distant subjects in close for a detailed three-dimensional viewing experience.
This long-range viewing device offers green-hued clarity via highly-specialized optics and a top-notch image intensifier. This premium optoelectronic combination delivers excellent imaging under low-light viewing conditions. In no-light situations, the integral IR illuminator provides ample supplementary illumination so you can see, while remaining unseen by the human eye.
The Night Shadow also provides an advance feature set, with user-friendly digital controls. Embedded in the heart of this night vision device is ATN's exclusive SMART technology, which activates or deactivates the unit when it is brought into or out of the viewing position. This system helps to conserve battery power, and maximize the life-span of the intensifier tube.
The Night Shadow ranks as a premier choice for boating, nature-study, search and rescue, military, and law-enforcement applications.
There are many different variables that affect the distance that one can see with a night vision device, among them the object's size, the level of details being sought from the object and the conditions of observation. Night vision devices detect much further under a full moon and clear skies than they will under a new moon and cloudy skies.
Many different formulas are used to determine the statistic of maximum viewing range and the method of calculation varies by manufacturer.
The important factors to consider when evaluating any night vision device are the intensifier tube's generation, s/n ratio, level of magnification, specified resolution, along with the clarity & light transmission efficiency of the optical system.
All night vision devices sold by B&H have mechanisms in place to protect the intensifier tube from a sudden burst of bright light, but this does not mean that bright light doesn't damage the device. No matter what, bright light in any form is not good for the longevity and performance of image intensifier tubes.
