    ITT Night Vision Introduces Innovative Hands-Free Products

        ROANOKE, Va., Oct. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- ITT Night Vision(TM), the industry
    leader in commercial night vision, introduces two innovative, hands-free night
    vision viewers, the ITT Night Mariner(R) 200 and 210.  The Night Mariner 2OO
    and 2lO represent a breakthrough for marine night vision because they are
    compact, lightweight and head-mountable.
        "Three years after venturing beyond the defense industry and into marine
    markets, we found ourselves overwhelmed by boaters' requests for hands-free
    units," said Elaine F. Tuttle, vice president and director of commercial
    products for ITT Night Vision.  "The results are the Night Mariner 200 and
    210, the first ever head-mountable night vision viewers designed specifically
    for marine use."
        Marine enthusiasts will be quick to grasp the significance of this
    breakthrough.  Night vision revolutionized boating at night, making it safer
    and allowing boaters to extend their day.  Now boaters can take advantage of
    night vision technology, while leaving both hands free to navigate, use a
    radio or throttle, make repairs or fish.
        To truly appreciate the unique features these products have to offer
    you've got to try them.  The durable, ergonomic unit detaches from the
    headmount and fits comfortably in one or two hands.  The revolutionary front
    lens is removable, allowing the substitution of any C-mount lens.  The yellow
    and black unit is completely waterproof and, like all Night Mariner products,
    it floats.  The Night Mariner 200 and 210 work in the dark by collecting
    minute amounts of undetectable light and intensifying it, creating
    near-daylight, green-tinted conditions through the eyepiece.  The Night
    Mariner 200 uses Generation II technology, while the 210 model features the
    latest Generation III technology.
        ITT Night Vision products include ITT Night Mariner for recreational and
    commercial boaters, ITT Night Quest for public recreational use and ITT Night
    Enforcer for law enforcement.  ITT Night Vision is based in Roanoke, Va. and
    is a division of ITT Defense and Electronics.
