Armasight Spark Multi-Purpose Night Vision Monocular | FLIR Spark
Night Vision Monocular Spark CORE Description
The FLIR Spark is a compact night vision monocular for enhancing awareness in minimal light conditions. A rugged composite housing and built-in IR illuminator allow Spark to capture sharp imagery in challenging weather conditions or complete darkness. Optional 3x and 5x optical zoom lenses and detachable high-power IR illuminator are available for long-range wildlife viewing.
The Armasight by FLIR Spark is a rugged, but lightweight multi-purpose night vision monocular. The Spark is built using our proprietary CORE™ (Ceramic Optical Ruggedized Engine) image tube, which includes double the resolution of Gen 1 devices. This provides flatter, clearer night vision images. The CORE platform offers ‘best in class’ resolution with up to 70 lp/mm, and increased photocathode sensitivity levels of upwards of 400μm/lm, providing image quality that rivals that of high-end Gen 2 image tubes, even in challenging ambient light conditions. With optional accessories, it can be used hand-held or head-mounted at a budget price. With optional 3x afocal lens and IR illuminator, it can serve as a medium range, ultra-high resolution spotting scope and with optional camcorder/camera adapter, you can even take footage or stills though it in darkness.
Classic, Compact Night Vision
Rugged CORE intensifier tube and onboard IR illuminator allow continuous surveillance in tough conditions.

For years, development and improvement of consumer-orientated single stage Gen 1 technology has stood still – until now. Traditionally, Gen 1 tubes are made of glass – making them quite fragile and easily damaged, and have relatively low resolution, with very evident image edge distortion.
Introducing an Armasight exclusive – CORE (Ceramic Optical Ruggedized Engine) technology image intensiffier tubes! While CORE does not contain a micro channel plate (and so by definition lands in the Gen 1 category) that is where the parallels end. Instead of glass, CORE tubes use a specially formulated ceramic compound fused with metal alloys similar to those used in production of Gen 2 and Gen 3 image intensiffier tubes.
Further advances in CORE have almost removed edge distortion, dramatically increased photo-sensitivity and most importantly, almost doubled resolution up to 70 lp/mm! The Armasight Spark is the perfect partner for this new hybrid tube-type – a rugged, but light-weight multi-purpose night vision monocular. With optional accessories, it can be used hand-held or head-mounted; with a day scope adapter, it can convert your existing day scope to night vision at a budget price. With optional 3X a-focal lens and IR illuminator, it can serve as a medium range, ultra-high resolution spotting scope and with optional camcorder/camera adapter, you can even take footage or stills though it in darkness.
