Chromatra Exhibiting Color Night Vison Clip-on at TTPOA SWAT Conference

Chromatra, innovators in night vision technologies, will be showing the ColorTAC™ CVA-14 Color Night Vision Adaptor at Table #T14 the 2017 TTPOA SWAT Conference in the Dallas/Fortworth Area, Texas.

Beverly, Mass. (April 2017) – Chromatra, LLC, the innovator behind the design and manufacture of real color capable night vision, will show their new product, the ColorTAC™ CVA-14, the affordable Clip-on technology that lets you see color through your existing PVS-14 night vision device, at Table #T14 at the 2017 TTPOA SWAT Conference, April 19-23, 2017 in the Dallas/Fortworth Area of Texas at the Hyatt Regency.

The TTPOA (Texas Tactical Police Officers Association) conference gives law enforcement officers a chance to “network,” exchange ideas and techniques, attend high quality tactical trainings, as well as see the latest and greatest in law enforcement technology.

ColorTAC technology has gained widespread attention in the law enforcement, federal and military departments for its unique ability to negate the main disadvantage of current night vision gear (NVG): the “green glow.” This green monochromatic image prevents the NVG viewer from seeing critical visual information: color. Not being able to see color is a liability that can be potentially deadly. Without being able to see color, law enforcement personnel may not be able to properly assess the scene and make correct decisions; military medics may have difficulty telling blood from water, oil or other fluids, and thus may make mistakes in triage priorities; officers can have difficulty navigating terrain. In addition, seeing color can reduce the fatigue and visual distortion green monochromatic night vision can cause.

Chromatra, LLC, established in 2014, is the first company to credibly develop the ColorTAC™ technology  which when used in conjunction with any of the over 1-million night vision devices already on the market today, provides the user with, simply, a color image at night. For those who rely on NVG’s to perform their mission, the ability to See What’s Missing™ can be the difference between life and death.

The ColorTAC™ CVA-14 unit operates in extreme environments, is easily deployable, lightweight, exceeds market battery life requirements and is very affordable. The unit folds up quickly and compactly for storage or transportation and takes just seconds to attach to any existing PVS-14—green or white phosphor.
