  • Low-light television [r]: Night vision devices that are sensitive principally in the visible light spectrum, but at intensities below the threshold of human sight. If they have multiple image-forming elements sensitive to different visible wavelengths, they can produce color displays. [e]
  • Thermal imager [r]: A third-generation night vision device that operates in the mid- to far-infrared spectrum, creating images based on the temperature differences between objects and their surroundings [e]
