Boston Harbor Patrol Expands Use Of G15 Tactical Dual-Tube Night Vision Binocular By N-Vision Optics
N-Vision Optics, provider of leading edge, tactical night vision devices and technologies, announced that the Boston Harbor Patrol has expanded its use of the G15 Tactical Dual-tube Night Vision Binocular by N-Vision Optics.
“Since we’re on the water, and usually moving at a faster speed, our priorities and needs are different from most users of night vision, who select monoculars,” said Phillip Terenzi, Harbormaster for the Boston (Massachusetts) Police Harbor Unit. “Night vision goggles, especially with magnification, are the best fit for busy harbor patrol boats.”
Made from two connected, lightweight, GT-14 monoculars, the G15 is an ideal binocular for harbor patrol agents. In addition to night vision, it provides the depth perception required while navigating on a boat -- especially at high speeds -- and depth perception is enabled by stereoscopic vision. Harbor Patrol Agents who are rarely involved in exchanging gunfire don’t require the quick switching between the night vision eye to the natural eye, something that requires special training.
Irregular ambient light of a harbor at night can create problems with “blooming” of light. The addition of a 3X magnification lens helps mitigate the interference of the ambient light, and Harbormaster Terenzi is working with N-Vision Optics to investigate further performance enhancements by using 5X magnification.
“From Harbor Police to Campus Security, affordable night vision is increasingly important to those responsible for maintaining public safety,” said Max Rivkin, founder of N-Vision Optics.
