ATN Gen 3 Night Vision Monocular 6015-3 is a handheld night scope that can also be head- or helmet-mounted. Designed for the most demanding of nighttime applications, the ATN 6015-3 Night Vision Scope can be configured as for hands-free use with a helmet mount, or adapted to cameras and camcorders. Based on the ATN PVS-14 used by the U.S. military, this ATN Night Vision Monocular is of the highest quality in optics, design and functionality. This versatile, high quality, multipurpose night vision monocular is an outstanding choice for professional night vision applications.
The ATN 60153 NV Monocular is equipped with an ATN standard 3rd Generation Image Intensifier Tubes of the highest quality. The tube has a micro channel plate, GaAs photocathode, and a completely self-contained integral high-voltage power supply. These Generation 3 Night Vision tubes provide a combined increase in resolution, Signal-to-Noise and photosensitivity over tubes with a multi-alkaline photocathode. Gen 3 Night Vision is the standard for the USA military.
American Technologies Network Corporation manufactures and distributes the widest array of Night Vision systems in the world. Our selection of night vision devices from ATN includes a big variety of ATN Night Vision Binoculars, monoculars, and rifle scopes, with a full range of technology options from Gen 1 Night Vision Devices through Gen 2 and Generation 3 Night Vision Devices.
Gen 3 night vision was developed as an improvement over Second Generation Night Vision Devices, by applying gallium arsenide to the photocathode. This modification makes it possible for the Night Vision Device to produce bright and very sharp images compared to Generation 2 Night Vision.
How does a Night Vision Device work? Night vision scopes collect available light via the objective lens, inluding starlight, moonlight, and infra-red radiation. Next, the light goes through a photocathode tube that is located inside of the Night Vision Device. Light particles which are called photons are transformed into electrons, which are augmented through a number of different processes. After aplification, the electrons are projected onto a phosphorus screen that transforms them into a visible image.
