Image Intensifier Tubes

As the world's leading manufacturer of Generation (Gen) 3 image intensification technology, Harris continues to work hand-in-hand with customers to expand night vision and vision - enhancing capabilities, technologies, and resources.

F9800 Series (MX-10160)

The Harris F9800 Series Gen 3 18-mm image intensifier consists of a high-efficiency GaAs photocathode bonded to a glass input window, a microchannel plate (MCP) current amplifier, and a P-43 phosphor screen deposited on an inverting fiber optic output window. White phosphor configurations are also available.

The Gen 3 photocathode is very sensitive to low radiation levels of visible and, especially, near infrared light. It also provides very high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) for extended detection ranges at very low light levels. The 6-micron channel spacing in Harris’ MCP provides exceptional resolution. The MCP has a thin ion-barrier film that preserves photocathode sensitivity during operation, greatly extending the life of Gen 3 tubes.

Harris continues to improve Gen 3 MX-10160 image intensifier tubes to increase operational range and situational awareness for the user. Equipped with a gated power supply, the Pinnacle® versions provide truly outstanding performances in high-light or light-polluted areas, such as urban environments. In addition, the Pinnacle tube provides a reduced halo. Non-gated and standard-filmed tubes are also available.

F9810 Series (MX-10130)

The Harris F9810 Series Gen 3 18-mm image intensifier consists of a high-efficiency GaAs photocathode bonded to a glass input window, a microchannel plate (MCP) current amplifier, and a P-43 phosphor screen deposited on a non-inverting fiber optic output window. White phosphor configurations are also available.
