I am deeply concerned about this page.

Charge Coupled Devices are a form of image sensor... not night vision equipment*. The core of common night vision systems is an image intensifier tube. They are completely different technologies.

  • =Yes there are a few kinds of low light CCD's, including ones coupled directly to image intensifier tubes by fiber optic bundles. But this is not what is used in night vision goggles or most other popular depictions.

A serious rewrite is in order IMHO. This page is just plain wrong.

NV Gs don't white out or cause a painful blinding sensation when exposed to a bright light they will shut off or auto dim to compensate
