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.
Harris Gen 3 F9800M22G/M24G image intensifier tubes are designed for use in all night vision systems that use an inverting tube, such as aviator goggles, ground systems, and weaponsights, as well as in OEM systems requiring this same tube type. Harris offers tube options with different performance levels that comply with the U.S. DoS and DoD guidelines for Gen 3 export.

IMAGE INTENSIFIER, GEN 3, 18-MM
F9800 SERIES (MX-10160)
Each model in Harris’ F9800 Series of Gen 3 18-mm image intensifier tubes consists of a high-efficiency GaAs photocathode bonded to a glass input window, a microchannel plate (MCP) current amplifier, and a P-43 phosphor screen deposited on an inverting fiber-optic output window. The 9800 Series is also offered in white phosphor configurations (F9400).
The Gen 3 photocathode is very sensitive to low-radiation levels of visible and, especially, near infrared light. It provides very high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) for extended detection ranges at very low light levels. The 6-micron channel spacing in Harris’ MCP provides exceptional resolution and extended detection ranges in low-light conditions.
