MALVERN, Pa., 30 Jan. 2015. Ricoh Americas Corp. in Malvern, Pa., is introducing the RICOH NV-10A digital binoculars for military, homeland security, marine, rescue, fire fighting, law enforcement, and similar applications.

The electro-optical imaging binoculars can penetrate fog, smoke, rain, and sand to provide a crisp, clear image, even at night, company officials say.

The RICOH NV-10A binoculars enable users to push a button on the binoculars and clarify, brighten and sharpen images. This same technology enhances the view for consumer applications such as boating, birding, and wildlife viewing.

The PENTAX Atmospheric Interference Reduction (PAIR) technology reintroduces color that would otherwise be obscured.

The RICOH NV-10A digital binoculars enable users to capture still and video images of the scenes they're surveying. Advanced stabilization further improves image clarity, and infrared technology lights up the faintest scenes in the dark of night.

The RICOH NV-10A enhanced binoculars are water resistant and dust proof and include GPS location -- especially useful for charting incidents on the water -- as well as a digital compass.

By providing large, well-spaced buttons, Ricoh has made the binoculars easy to use while wearing gloves. Non-slip rubber surfaces provide a sure grip and subdued colors help the user remain discreet.
