Abstract
(EN)
Apparatus and methods for converting a monochrome night vision or other electro-optical device into one that provides a sensation of full color, including from red to blue with white and black. Preferred apparatus of the invention comprise an electro-optical device (1), particularly a mono-chromatic night vision device, that comprises a plurality of light filters. A first light filter system (10) is positioned at a light-input end of the device, and a second light filter system (11) is positioned at a light-output end of the device, whereby the plurality of filter systems provide to a viewer a sensation of full color, including from red to blue with white and black.

L'invention concerne un appareil et des procédés destinés à la conversion d'un dispositif de vision nocturne monochrome ou d'un autre dispositif opto-électrique en dispositif fournissant une sensation toute en couleur, allant du rouge au bleu en passant par le blanc et le noir. Les modes de réalisation préférés de l'invention comprennent un dispositif de vision opto-électrique, plus particulièrement un dispositif de vision nocturne monochromatique, comprenant une pluralité de filtres de lumière. Un premier système de filtre de lumière est situé à une extrémité par où entre la lumière, et un second système de filtre de lumière est situé à une extrémité par où sort la lumière, cette pluralité de systèmes de filtres fournissant à un utilisateur une sensation toute en couleur, allant du rouge au bleu en passant par le blanc et le noir.
