Check out this video showing the advancement of full color, low-light camera technology as a rifleman engages targets at night while wearing night vision.
While the camera can’t pick up the shooter’s infrared laser in this video, defense technology companies are currently creating color night vision devices with similar technology combined with infrared properties to give our military much more advanced night optical devices than the grainy green goggles regularly used.
This video demonstrates night vision technology many civilians unknowingly have access to, sometimes at a lesser cost than military grade night vision devices.
I attempted to link the video to the shooting portion because the first half is some tool getting off to the sound of his own voice and face being on camera. So if it doesn’t work, manually skip to 01:43 to see the relevant footage.
