The Military & Aerospace Electronics take:
11 May 2021 -- Sensors in the Enhanced Night Vision Goggle-Binocular (ENVG) enable users to see through rain, fog, sleet, or dust, and also have a thermal setting that makes it effective during the day.
The U.S. military does not have the monopoly on night vision that it once had, and now America’s adversaries have easy access to some of the same technology. That means the Army produce better, more useful devices that can see better at night, share video feeds with other operators, and relay data from the battlefield.
The ENVG's ability to outline silhouettes can help warfighters pick out targets peeking out from behind a barrier or tree. A soldier’s goggles can display video feeds from the ENVG-B and the Family of Weapon Sights (FWS-I) at once to enable soldiers can see in two directions at the same time if they pointed their FWS-1 behind them or to the side.
