Night Vision Systems 2014

The U.S. military owns the night. The Night Vision Systems researched and developed by the U.S. and its Allies have meant the difference between success and failure; between life and death. But, protecting the warfighter against potential threats has become increasingly complicated in an evolving, asymmetrical battle. IDGA’s Night Vision Systems event is the premier hub for government officials, military personnel, academia, and vendors who aim to significantly influence Night Vision development for the military. The end goal is to retain an edge on the technology globally.

Learn about the technologiesthat deliver cutting-edge capability to the US Armed Forces:

  • Thermal Imaging
  • Advanced Censoring
  • Enhanced Infrared
  • Unmanned AerialSystems
  • SWaP-C
  • COTI Devices
  • SurveillanceTechnology
  • Open ArchitectureSystems, and more

Join IDGA and world-classmilitary, laboratory, and industry experts to witness demonstrations of the latest technological advances in Night Vision Systems.

This year's event will look at:

  • Advancements in thermal imaging capabilities and their applicability to new realms of asymmetrical warfare
  • Army, Marine Corps, Navy, and Air Force night vision capabilities
  • Partnership opportunities between government, industry, and academia
  • Adapting night vision technology to complement existing/up-and-coming commercial applications
  • Developments in the field of unmanned aerial systems and a discussion from one of six approved FAA launch sites
  • Benefits available to the United States from a well established international presence in night vision research
