We Find Light In Darkness

DarkStar® is our proprietary Passive Color Night Vision technology. It uses the visible and non-visible light residue after dark to view the image in full color without any active illumination. Our intelligent visual data processing algorithms dynamically adjust the incoming information to create an image as if it was daytime.

  • Passive Full Color Night Vision is fueled by environmental Photons invisible to the human eye.
  • Photons are massless particles of light present in just about everything in our environment, from plants to planets.
