A request for information by SOCOM showed details about emerging technology testing fixated on improving the traditional night vision used by special forces. This new tech is known as true color night vision and fused imagery sensors. The new system is designed to allow soldiers to see in full color in the dark rather than the green colored images currently viewed. “Target discrimination during obscured conditions (smoke, ash, snow, fog, rain, etc.) day or night is of interest” says the RFI. New night vision technology could significantly improve target identification and situational awareness.
