OVNI-M / OVNI-B are eyepieces made specifically for astronomy. And our intensifier tubes are known to be the best in the world.
OVNI Night Vision innovations do not stop there and we offer solutions to meet the needs of all users with a project related to astronomy and space :
- for amateur astronomy. Our « Astronomy grade » intensifier tubes can be modified to fit all terrestrial monocular / binocular systems, giving you the best performance.
- for professionals (space agencies, observatories, space domain awareness, government projects...). We developed the "Space Custom Applications" program, see more information below.
We are pleased to answer any request, please contact us to firstname.lastname@example.org
Space Custom Applications is a specific branch of OVNI Night Vsion to support space exploration requiring highly custom made photocathode, MCP (micro channel plate), and phosphor screen systems.
Our instruments can be modulated and fully adapted to be installed on ground-based telescopes or satellites launched as independent research missions.
Read below some application areas of our products for Space agencies, Professional observatories, Space domain awareness, Government projects...
Reach to us when you are ready for the best solutions.
Space Objects Surveillance
For the defense of national and private interests in space.
Our systems detects and offer real-time observation for active and inactive satellites, discarded launch stages and fragmentation debris orbiting Earth.
Tracking of very small objects becomes possible to avoid collision.
UV, VUV and X-ray phenomenas
Our devices can study UV, VUV and X-ray phenomena across the galaxy.
And will help to identify black holes, neutron stars, binary star systems or other objects emitting these rays.
These instruments can be placed in geosynchronous orbit or installed in ground-based telescopes.
Near-Earth Objects (NEO) Localization
Custom image intensifier tubes contribute to missions specifically designed to provide science data and to make new discoveries.
Like the discovery of many new, small comets before they are consumed by the heat of our sun. And Asteroids and other minor planet that can potentially impact Earth and cause damage.
Detection of high energy phenomenas
Our high quality MCP (Micro Channel Plate) are developed for detection sensitivity down to the single photon level, and with sub-nano second timing.
Plasma, neutron, gamma, X-Ray or Cherenkov activity can be detected and analyzed with our systems.
Electric and Magnetic interactions analysis
OVNI Night Vision solutions will help researchers to identify and quantify electric and magnetic field interactions, such as aurorae and solar flares...
Study of planets
Tailor made image intensifier tubes can observe gravity waves, intense airglow or survey and map the atmospheric skies on earth.
But also all other planets and dwarf planets in our universe, along with some of their moons.
Amateur astronomers can also contribute to science ! This animation was the APOD of February 9, 2021 on the NASA website
Here is an animation from Martin Fiedler of the Crab Pulsar (PSR B0531+21) resolved temporally and spatially.
This Pulsar of 20kms in diameter has a rotational period of 33 milliseconds so it performs 30 revolutions per second.
Using an OVNI-M and a QHY174M-GPS camera, we can see here 1 rotation of the pulsar in only 33 milliseconds and the two beams of 5 milliseconds each.
