Armasight Spark Multi-purpose night vision monocular CORE Technology Ceramic Description

The Armasight Spark Multi Purpose Night Vision Monocular is more than just another night vision monocular, it offers an Armasight CORE (Ceramic Optical Ruggedized Engine) image intensifier tube, putting it a step ahead of glass optics night vision devices that are both more fragile and frequently lack the resolution capabilities of the CORE technology.


While CORE image intensifiers qualify as Generation 1 - these are not your regular Generation 1 technology. The Armasight Spark CORE uses a ceramic compound instead of glass and offers a significantly higher quality image than a Generation 1 night vision device that does not use CORE technology.

It is a lightweight but rugged device with amazing night vision optics, making it a smart choice for anyone that demands clarity in the dead of night, whether your purpose is security detail, hunting, or first responder.

There are a number of available options for the Armasight Spark CORE night vision monocular including a camera/camcorder adapter for recording in the field. It can also carry a 3x a focal lens and even an IR illuminator.

Gen 1 Core Technology Night Vision


CORE™ Image Intensifier Tube

Thanks to the latest advancements in electro optical manufacturing Armasight redefines affordable high

performance night vision with CORE™ (Ceramic Optical Ruggedized Engine) Image Intensifier

CORE™ VS. Gen 1

Unlike Gen 1 Image intensifier tubes that are fragile by a virtue of being made from glass, CORE™ IITs

are made just like Gen 2 and Gen 3 by fusing metal alloys with ceramic compounds. CORE™ technology

is based on durable elements and allows tight component stacking, resulting in image tubes that are

exceptionally shockproof and vibration resistant. This makes CORE™ IITs ideal for weapon sight

application. Robust packaging envelop lacks easy-to-break protrusions common in Gen 1 tubes and

allows for streamline design of lighter, compact and more reliable night vision devices.

CORE™ platform offers best in class resolution with over 70 lp/mm, increased photocathode sensitivity

level in upwards of 400µm/lm and infinite (!) Signal to Noise (SN) providing image quality in prevalent

ambient light condition rivaling high end Gen 2 image tubes.

    • Q: Hi, thank you for the quick answer. Unfortunately the Vampire is out of my budget. The Spark would be used on an AK along with my AimPoint Pro. Do you know if the Spark will hold up to AK recoil? Thanks!

    • A: Armasight Spark night vision monocular can hold a maximum of 5.56. So AK would not be an option. We offer some flexible payment options which may help you.

  • From Bill at 9/19/14 4:10 PM

    • Q: I want to strap this on my head and walk through pitch black woods to my deer stands...cross a shallow river and see animals in the night before I spook them.
      Would this unit suffice in pitch black as I live in the country.

    • A: Armasight Spark provides very clear picture. Even in complete darkness you would be able to see at least 50 yards out. And if you utilize an infrared illuminator, that will enhance your capabilities even more. Note that you will need to get the headgear set for this monocular which we sell as an optional accessory.
