Inside the Freaky World of Next-Gen Night Vision- Wired News Reporting

ROANOKE, Virginia — A pair of buildings on Plantation Drive sits just past the tractor-supply store, right in front of the barn belonging to the local women’s college. From the street, the cream-colored structures don’t look like much more than typical office buildings; only a wire fence distinguishes them from their neighbors. Inside, however, is a laboratory and fabrication facility where engineers produce one of the U.S. military’s most important advantages over its foes: the ability to see in the dark, when others are all but blind.

Night vision technology — and these buildings — have been around for more than a half-century. The green-tinged view from inside the goggles is now yawningly familiar. But this ITT Corporation facility doesn’t make the rudimentary night-vision gear found in kids’ toys or sex tapes. Here, they design and build the military-grade gear. And it can peer further into the dark, with greater fidelity, and under darker conditions, than any civilian equipment. (Sorry, Paris.)
