When did night vision and thermal technology come about? Hell, I have no idea – but our longtime friend Darren Jones of Armasight is well versed on the topic. We try not to get to technical, but still explain how these technologies function. Some other highlights include:

  • How Darren used Night Vision/Thermal during his deployments
  • Armasight’s original founder buying the company back and trying to restore their customer service driven philosophy after FLIR ran the company into the ground
  • Who makes the lens for these high end optics?
  • New 640 Contractor
  • What are ‘NODS’ exactly?
  • Other uses for thermal/night vision
  • piggies and song dogs
