The 4G technology has become Photonis’ high runner over the last 10 years and is today the benchmark in all major European Land Forces programs and around the world.


The 4G Image Intensifier Tube (IIT) is a more affordable version than 4G+ while maintaining a high level of performance. 4G IIT provides operators high image quality and long detection ranges in the most challenging light conditions: brightness of equipment, longevity of intensifier tubes, ability to see farther in increasingly low levels of darkness and very fast auto-gating.



Photonis 4G technology is perfectly suited to the stringent requirements of night combat operations by providing operators high image quality and long detection ranges in the most challenging lighting conditions. Indeed, Photonis 4G bandwidth is twice larger than Gen III image intensifiers, collecting more photons in all operational conditions, and providing soldiers.


with the crucial tactical advantage of seeing 1100nm lasers target designator that no other image intensifier can detect. With the broader availability of night vision devices, the challenge is to have the best performance image intensifier based equipment that is always more efficient than the one of the opposing force.



ONYX is the optional black and white night vision of Photonis.
Studies show that night-time scenes appear remarkably more natural in B&W versus the usual green. Photonis offers B&W night vision for those who want to have a natural vision at night. B&W provides clearer information about the contrast, shapes and shadows.
