Night vision devices using image intensifier technology have the ability to detect an object of interest in various lighting conditions and to transition from an extremely dark location to an area with ample lighting. This project focuses on responders' use of these devices in ports at night.
The Ports at Night, Seeing with Handheld Intensifiers Assessment Report is a limited distribution document, and is available in the SAVER Community on First Responder Communities of Practice (FRCoP).
