It's Not Your Father's Night Vision

Abstract:
Information is as much a weapon as ordnance. Small wonder, then, that defense imaging is an active area of development. The technology has gone far beyond the short-wave IR (1 to 2 Ám) night-vision goggles of yesteryear. Today, cutting-edge systems are leveraging materials like amorphous silicon and carbon nanotubes to image over the mid-wave IR (MWIR, 3 to 5 Ám) and long-wave IR (7 to 14 Ám) spectral bands.
