Intro to Night Vision April 4th 6-8.30pm

April 4 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


This class offers a beginner-friendly exploration of these technologies, their applications, and how they can enhance our ability to see in low-light conditions.

Participants will gain insights into the basic principles behind night vision and thermal imaging, learning about the differences between the two technologies and the science that enables them to capture and display images beyond the range of normal human vision. Through a combination of informative presentations, demonstrations, and hands-on activities, attendees will become familiar with the fundamental components of night vision and thermal devices, including image intensifier tubes, thermal sensors, optics, and displays.

Key topics covered in the class include:

  1. How Night Vision Works: Exploring image intensification, low-light amplification, and the various generations of night vision devices.
  2. How Thermal Imaging Works: Delving into the principles of detecting heat signatures and converting them into visible images, with discussions on thermal sensor technologies.
  3. Applications: Discovering the practical applications of night vision and thermal imaging in fields such as security, surveillance, wildlife observation, outdoor recreation, and more.
  4. Choosing the Right Device: Guidance on selecting entry-level night vision and thermal devices based on specific needs and preferences.
  5. Hands-On Experience: Participants will have the opportunity to handle entry-level night vision goggles and thermal monoculars, allowing them to experience firsthand how these devices provide enhanced vision in low-light and dark conditions.
  6. Best Practices and Limitations: Understanding the limitations of these technologies, including factors that affect performance, range, and image quality.

This class will include testing the night vision gear on the range, rentals, and ammo.
