Night Optics Ships Equipment to Nor. California Police Agencies Combatting Looters


Night Optics ships high-performance tactical night vision systems to a Northern California police agency working to stop looters from taking advantage of evacuated home and business owners in areas affected by the Butte Fire (Amador & Calaveras Counties), which has burned more than 70,000 acres and is currently 95% contained. The fires have destroyed a staggering 475 residences, 343 outbuildings and damaged at least 45 structures.

Explorer 320 Thermal Camera + Fireworks

We took the new Explorer 320 up to the Top of the World in San Clemente, California on July 4th 2014 to watch the Fireworks display at the San Clemente Pier nearly 1000 feet below and 2.6mi away. We draw a comparison between what is seen with the naked eye and what the thermal imager sees. We were impressed that fireworks displays could be seen through the imager as far as 6 miles north on the water in Dana Point, CA.

The short video clip features footage from a Canon 5D Mark II DSLR Camera and Explorer 320 Thermal camera.  Both systems were securely mounted to high quality Bushnell titanium tripods. The footage from the Explorer 320 was captured using the Video-out feature to a personal DVR.

A dear friend lost!

Steven C. Langford

On December 25, 2013 the world lost a great friend in Steve Langford. Our thoughts are with Steve’s family.

Below is an very well written note from Tim Grogan, who often worked along side Steve. They Traveled together and collaborated on my projects on behalf of Night Optics.

Steve was a rare person: patriot, friend, ally, gentleman, true expert in many different fields and an astute businessman. I can only guess he was an equally treasured family man.

You’d never hear him raise his voice or belittle another human being. Complaining was not in his vocabulary, only helping no matter how difficult the request.

To lose such a friend is heartbreaking; for his family to lose him like this at Christmas must stretch faith to its very limits.

Today should be first and foremost a day of prayer for Steve and his family.

We are all saddened to the core.
