Paper Abstract

High quality night vision digital video is nowadays required for many observation, surveillance and targeting applications, including several of the current soldier modernization programs. We present the performance increase that is obtained when combining a state-of-the-art image intensifier with a low power consumption CMOS image sensor. Based on the content of the video signal, the gating and gain of the image intensifier are optimized for best SNR. The options of the interface with a separate laser in the application for range gated imaging are discussed.
