This is the high resolution 64 lines per mm, 3 generation,  6 power version of the ARES Night Vision Rifle Scope. This scope works at night as well as at dusk and dawn with the light filtering lens cap on.

It has the ability to intensify low levels of light without the illuminator in contrast to the day / night weapon scopes which require a light at such low light levels.

It weights 3.8 lbs.

It comes with an near IR illuminator.

It is rugged and provides very good observation, target acquisition and aiming capabilities for the operator.

ATN's 3rd generation.

By adding a sensitive chemical, gallium arsenide to the photocathode a brighter and sharper image has been achieved over 2nd generation units. An ion barrier film was also added to increase tube life. 3rd Gen. provides the user with good to excellent low light performance.

ATN's 3rd generation image intensifier tubes are of the highest quality. They have a micro channel plate, GaAs photocathode, and a completely self-contained integral high-voltage power supply. These 3rd Generation tubes provide a combined increase in resolution, signal to noise and photosensitivity over tubes with a multi-alkali photocathode. Generation 3 is the standard for the USA military.
