Photonis is proud to announce that we will continue to supply and support the Dutch Armed Forces with state-of-the-art 4G image intensifier tubes. Early this year the DMO (Defense Material Organisation) signed a contract with Elbit Systems to supply the XACT 32 NV Micro night vision monocular which features a high performance 16mm 4G image intensifier tube. The system and image intensifier offers high performance in combination with a reduction in size and weight for the operator.

The 7 year contract will start with an initial purchase of more than 4,300 night vision systems, with significant optional quantities for the ensuing years. DMO’s choice of Photonis image intensifiers demonstrates a continued trust in the capabilities and technologies of Photonis.

Following decades of experience with in-service night vision devices using Photonis image intensifiers, initially based on the XD-4 and XR5 family and continuing with the 4G image intensifier range, this recent procurement is a reinforcement in the belief that the Photonis 4G image intensifier range remains the preferred choice for European Armed Forces.

The 4G technology is perfectly suited to the stringent requirements of night combat operations. It enables operators to get the best possible image and range in rapidly changing light conditions.

This technology has become the standard in all European programs without exception. With the broader availability of night vision devices in general, the challenge is to have the best performance image intensifiers and systems that are always more powerful than those of the opposing forces and which, in particular, allow us to see more and further than the others.

Photonis’ headquarters are based in Bordeaux in France and its manufacturing facilities are located both in France and the Netherlands. Photonis employs approximately 1,000 people worldwide and is world renowned for its high performance image intensification technology. Photonis is prime contractor for all NATO countries and affiliates and its image intensifier tubes are deployed worldwide.
