By combining better-than-military standard night vision imaging with field-ready toughness, the ARES® 4-4 delivers substantially better target detection range and resolution, particularly at extremely low light levels, over military-standard 3rd-Gen optics. The fast, infrared-sensitive optics and military-standard Gen 3 image tube make for easy target acquisition, whether you're a professional operator or a dedicated varmint hunter.
The red-on-green reticle system provides optimal contrast against dark and light targets alike, while 1/6 MOA windage and elevation adjustments let you really dial in with precision accuracy. A detachable IR illuminator provides invisible light when natural light is scarce.
A note on 4th-Generation image intensifier tube technology
4th Gen Gated/Filmless image tube technology represents the biggest technological breakthrough in image intensification of the past 10 years. By removing the ion barrier film and "gating" the system, Gen 4 demonstrates substantial increases in target detection range and resolution, particularly at extremely low light levels. An Autogated power supply further improves image resolution under high light conditions and a reduced halo effect that minimizes interference from bright light sources. The reduced Halo maximizes the effectiveness of the Night Vision device in dynamic lighting conditions such as those experienced, for example, in night operations in urban areas.
