Many military professionals, both U.S. and international, have very specific individual preferences when it comes to their kit. In this sense, the benefits of the Harris Gen 3 P-45 white phosphor option are closely linked with user preference, as well as mission-specific requirements.

Traditional image intensifier tubes use a P-43 phosphor screen output, resulting in the yellow-green image that has become the signature view through most Gen 3 night vision technology. Using a P-45 phosphor screen instead yields an alternate coloration closer to black and white imagery, which some users prefer. Harris proudly offers this option in peak performance Gen 3 tubes. In a recent field research study, 36 members of the U.S. Maryland National Guard used and compared white and green phosphor technologies. Participants reported that white phosphor enhanced their overall object recognition while providing contrast sensitivity equivalent to green phosphor.
