See Clearly With NVIS From Quantum Coating

Night Vision Instrument System (NVIS) is a specialized optical product set that allows for clear and unrestricted vision in the dark. Created primarily for military use, NVIS allows for night operations and other activities that require human interfaces, such as cockpit instruments, to be visible to the operator in any circumstance.

Typical military applications for NVIS Filters include:

  • Military and Special Forces tactical gear, including night vision goggles
  • Ground attack and transport vehicle instrumentation
  • Fighters, helicopters and other airborne vehicle instrumentation

Our NVIS products work by using custom coatings on glass surfaces to create filters that block out near infra-red light, while providing high transmission of the visible light spectrum. Interfaces can then be seen through special optical devices, rendering them invisible to the naked eye.

NVIS Filters That Meet All US Defense Testing Requirements

Our NVIS filters meet all US Defense testing requirements for use in cockpit, ground based and shipboard instrumentation. We offer standard and custom coated glass panels designed specifically for use as Class A or Class B color LCD displays with LED backlight. Our filters are used in NVIS applications which meet the military requirements of MIL-STD-3009 for Electronic and Electro-Optical displays.

Standard glass configurations are 0.2mm to 1.1mm thick in sizes up to 21" diagonal. Typical Transmission Cutoff Wavelength is between 625 NM to 660 NM range with < 1% variation.


T avg > 86% from 400nm to 630nm | T 50% cutoff at 650nm ± 7nm | T < 2 x e-5 optical density from 700nm to 930nm
