Aviation Specialties Unlimited, Inc. offers a variety of image intensifiers. Image intensifier tubes can be considered one of the most important modules of night vision devices that could play a crucial role in defense/security/industrial applications. We carry both film and thin film intensifiers, as well as a variety of replacement parts.
The Gen 3 photocathode is very sensitive to low radiation levels of visible and especially near infrared light. It also provides very high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) for extended detection ranges at very low light levels. Additionally, intensifiers provide exceptional resolution and the MCP has a thin ion-barrier film that preserves photocathode sensitivity during operation, greatly extending the life of Gen 3 tubes.
The 10160FG Series incorporates a Gen III photocathode that is very sensitive to low levels of visible and near-IR light. It has a thin-film ion barrier to greatly extend Gen III I2 life versus Gen II tubes.
