A night-vision device that uses one or more infrared transducers to scan a scene in the 3- to 5-µm or 8- to 12-µm spectral region, convert the infrared radiation to electronic data and present the resulting image on a televisionlike display. The term originally referred to airborne systems but now is used for any real-time thermal imaging system.
