If you've ever wondered how those little green dudes in sci-fi movies see in the dark, wonder no more! This blog post will discuss how thermal night vision goggles work and why they're such an invaluable tool for shooters.

Thermal night vision goggles use a technology called thermal imaging. Thermal imaging cameras detect infrared light, which is invisible to the human eye. This invisible light is emitted by all objects, regardless of whether they're emitting visible light or not. The hotter an object is, the more infrared light it will emit.

For example, on a hot summer day, you can feel the heat radiating off of asphalt from far away. Thermal imagers can detect this heat signature and turn it into a visible image. This image is usually displayed in shades of green because that's the color our eyes are most sensitive to in low-light conditions.

Thermal imaging cameras are mounted on the front of night vision goggles and are connected to a display screen that sits in front of the shooter's eye. The display screen amplifies the images captured by the camera so that the shooter can see them.

Conclusion

Thermal night vision goggles are an invaluable tool for shooters and have a wide range of applications, from search and rescue to law enforcement to military operations.
