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
