By August 9, 2017No Comments

Beverly, Massachusetts (August 2017) – Chromatra, LLC ™, the innovator behind the design and manufacture of color capable night vision, will participate in the Connecticut Swat Challenge being held Aug. 22 – 24, 2017. Chromatra, a Team Leader Level Sponsor will unveil its new product, the ColorTAC ™ CVA-14, during vendor hours. This affordable clip-on technology allows night vision users to see color through any existing PVS-14 device.

Commencing in 2005, the West Hartford Police Department SWAT team hosted the first New England area SWAT Challenge to provide an opportunity for SWAT operators to participate in SWAT training and various competitions. Since then, the CT SWAT Challenge has grown from an initial 16 teams representing 27 towns and cities (as well as the U.S. Army and CT State Police), to an unprecedented 38 teams and 150 vendors participating in 2016. The event provides participants with opportunities to demonstrate their skill set in tactics, training, helicopter operations, firearms, teamwork, explosives and more and includes dynamic classroom opportunities from some of the top trainers in their fields.

Chromatra, LLC was established in 2014 and is the first company to develop and produce the ColorTAC technology. When used in conjunction with a PVS-14, the most common NVG device used by military and law enforcement agencies today, ColorTAC provides the user with essential color-coded information. Some of the benefits that ColorTAC can provide are improved:

  • Suspect/Target Identification
  • Terrain AND MOBILITY Identification
  • Search and Rescue Operations
  • Medical Triage (Ability to Ascertain Blood from Water)
  • Surveillance and Perimeter Security
  • Navigation of dark locations
  • Identification of Tactical Lasers, Strobe and Maritime Lights

ColorTAC units are light-weight and were designed to operate in extreme environments. The affordable units fold up quickly and compactly and take just seconds to attach to any existing PVS-14.


For those who rely on NVG’s to perform their mission, the ability to “See What’s Missing” can mean the difference between life and death.
