The Night Vision Market is Running on Fumes
The beating heart of the entire US night vision market is the image intensifier tube.
Image intensifiers are a perfect example of a product with inelastic supply. The supply of image intensifier tubes does not scale well with demand.
If you've tried to buy ammunition in the last year, you've experienced the effects of inelastic supply: soaring prices, empty shelves, scalpers, hoarding...
Imagine how bad things would be if there were only two ammunition production lines in the entire world. That's the intensifier market in a nutshell. And L3Harris and Elbit Systems are already 12 months behind on orders.

WE DO IT RIGHT
Our Offerings in Detail
Most people wouldn't drive to work every day on flat tires, but a shocking amount of people treat their night vision this way. Nitrogen keeps dust, condensation, and water outside the unit where it belongs. Failing to regularly purge your device needlessly compromises it's function, leading to image quality issues and parts failures.
Every 90-180 Days
If you use your night vision devices more than 75 hours per year, you need semi-annual purging. And if they're exposed to harsh conditions and temperature swings, you may need to purge every quarter.
With the right equipment and training, purging is quick, effective, and affordable. But it's not something you can do in the field. Don't wait until your device fogs over to get a purge.
COMPREHENSIVE INSPECTION & SERVICE
Our comprehensive service starts with the complete disassembly of your device. Each component is inspected and function checked. This identifies damaged, and missing components before they cause issues.
Clean as a Whistle
Because dust can settle and shake loose, we clean your lenses along with every other piece of your device. We use the correct, non-damaging tools in a clean, anti-static environment.
Locking rings can creep over time. Checking and re-calibrating your infinity focus is an essential part of any complete service, and ensures annoyance free operation of your unit.
Precise adjustments to the horizontal and vertical alignment of your optic are necessary to prevent eye strain and ensure optical quality. This time consuming step is often skipped by less scrupulous vendors, especially with monocular devices.
