Dynamic Optical Blenders™

3D perception’s Dynamic Optical Blenders provide precision edge blending for night and night vision goggle (NVG) training, without compromising image quality. Optical blending does not sacrifice contrast for black level uniformity, and the servo-controlled optical blends can gradually take effect during day-to-night transitions.

During run-time, blenders receive time-of-day cues from Northstar’s nControl advanced scenario management software, which enables seamless transitions from pure electronic blends during daytime scenarios, through hybrid electronic/optical blends during dusk/dawn, to optical-only blends for night scenes.
