A very interesting electro-optics company called Chromatra LLC, out of Beverly Massachussetts, has teamed up with our friends at Tactical Night Vision Company (TNVC) to bring us color night vision in a PVS-14 night vision monocular. The (patented) ColorTAC technology’s actually called Gemini, and it’s really interesting, and cool. The Gemini 2-channel color night vision technology “leverages the way the human brain perceives and processes color information. Gemini can provide color to a range of sensor platforms at light levels many times lower than has been possible with conventional approaches,” according to the Chromatra ColorTAC website.

The specific product DefenseReview (DR) was shown is called the Chromatra/TNVC ColorTAC CVA-14 Color Night Vision Module PVS-14 Color Conversion Accessory System. Yes, that’s a lot of words, but it also offers a lot of color night vision performance. The ColorTAC CVA-14 Color Night Vision Module allows you to “take any PVS-14 monocular green or white night vision device, pop it into our system, push the button, and you have color night vision”, says Chromatra’s Tom Torosian. Easy-peasy. One-touch color night vision capability from your PVS-14, anytime, anywhere.

DR really liked the look of the CVA-14 Color Night Vision Module, as it looked simple to use, and rugged. It just seamed very well-designed and straightforward to us. Defense Review doesn’t know if the ColorTAC color night vision tech is going to be adpated to NVG’s (Night Vision Goggles) yet, but we’ll try to find out.

In the meantime, the TNVC/Chromatra ColorTAC Gemini color night vision tech is only available for the PVS-14 night vision monocular, and it currently retails for $2,695.00 USD.
