CNV in Hand Color Capable Night Visions Device

See Color at Night

It’s as simple as that: see the green cleared lane in the middle of the minefield marked by red chemlights; that the van is a white UN van, not the bad guy’s tan one; that it’s not green grass at the edge of the road, but brown mud; that he’s the one wearing the blue shirt; that
bit of red when the IV hits the vein.

The world isn’t all green, why should your night be?

Color from one green tube:

The ColorPath™ CCNVD (Color Capable Night Vision Device) uses one (1) standard, green image intensifier tube (such as MX-10160A or similar) to create a true, full-color image for the user. The system is also mechanical and filter based—not computer in the loop. This means that compared to other color systems, it is real time, unaffected by temperature, light weight, power frugal and low cost
