From the Airborne Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA) annual convention held in Houston Texas, Aviation Specialties Unlimited Inc., (ASU) revealed their new patent pending N16HT Pro (Night Pro) system. N16HT Pro is a wireless imaging, recording and disseminating night vision system used during periods of low light level conditions.
The ASU N16HT Pro fully integrates and compactly couples a GoPro® camera with an intensified night vision equipped device without the necessity for large, optical relay lenses that are commonly used today.
“There has been a lot of demand for light weight, rugged, wireless, weather tight night vision cameras that are small enough to use in the field,” said ASU President Jim Winkel. “Our integrated N16HT Pro gives law enforcement agencies and other operators a functional piece of equipment that does not hinder the officer’s abilities in the field. The N16HT Pro is just one of many new products and offerings that ASU is bringing to the law enforcement industry.”
The N16HT Pro offers a 40-degree field of view, weighs less than one pound, is integrated with the GoPro® Hero 4 and captures images at 12 megapixels with a burst mode at 30 frames per second. It captures images utilizing a military grade AN/PVS-14 objective lense, records in ultra HD (4X HD) and HD1080P resolutions, and stores these images using a 32 GB SD card. Images and video can also be viewed from N16HT Pro system using WiFi enabled smart devices. The GoPro® modes can be controlled using built in touchscreen technology and optionally from other remote control devices. The N16HT Pro system is offered in either green or white phosphor intensified models
The MSRP of the new N16HT Pro is $5,499. For ALEA attendees the first 200 orders will be priced at an introductory rate of $3,999. The N16HT Pro system is only available in the United States.
This is the second year in a row that ASU has introduced new products at ALEA. Last year the company also introduced the White Phosphor Night Vision Goggles for pilots and crewmembers.
“We have a 20 year history of supporting the law enforcement industry from around the world. ASU will continue to develop and manufacture innovative new products to meet the mission requirements of law enforcement units in the air and on the ground. They proudly serve and protect everyday and we want to supply the best equipment that makes their missions safer on a daily basis,” said Winkel.
