Wide Field of View Night Vision System

Vision Products’ second generation wide field of view night vision system (WNVS2) incorporates two high performance night vision sensors, optimally angled to provide a seamless 60° H x 40° V field of view with an effective total resolution of 3000 x 2000 pixels. Two Vision Products 40° x 40° prism eyepieces are arranged with partially overlapping fields of view of 20° in the central region to present the total image of 60° x 40°. Each eyepiece incorporates a 2048 x 2048 full color pixel AMOLED micro-display, taking full advantage of the high-resolution combined sensor images.

WNVS2 provides both daytime and nighttime operation without having to change hardware configurations. Only a single system is needed for around-the-clock operation. The update rate of the displays and night vision sensors has been increased to 90 Hz to reduce overall system latency and improve performance.

The accompanying vision processor corrects for optical and angular distortion before smoothly blending the two sensors’ sub-images into discrete and synchronized left and right eye images for presentation. Potentially distracting artifacts that could occur in the overlap region are avoided by blending the edges of the left and right images.

The eyepiece mount is fully adjustable for interpupillary distance, vertical, and fore/aft. A convenient single-hand action stows the eyepiece assembly by swinging it upward, out of view.
