Paper Abstract

What proved to be a vital development for the Army in its efforts to seek out and destroy the enemy now proves just as effective for the United States Customs Service. The problem for the Army was battling enemies familiar with the terrain--thus having the tactical advantage--under cover of night. The solution was night vision systems, which shifted the advantage to the Army. Night is the prime time for drug smuggling by land, air and sea. To increase night-time effectiveness, the law enforcement community and Customs, in particular, are relying more and more heavily on night vision technology.
