Futuristic Prototypes of First Soviet Night Vision Goggles

Posted on May 31, 2017 by tim


First Soviet night vision goggles appeared in early 1940s during first days of Russia joining World War 2. And those are the first prototypes of those, some were car mount some were portable.

 

First goggles were installed on GAZ-AA truck. It looked like a binocular with an electronic-optical light convertor. On top of the lorry they had a 250 watt infrared headlamp. Infrared sensors on the binoculars were converting the reflected light into a visible picture. It was powered by set of batteries inside the truck.
