The old mantra used by our elite warfighters reads quite simply: “Own the night.” Dominating the darkness through both technology and training remain the U.S. military’s tactical advantage over most any adversary. And whether you hunt predators at night or want to secure your own property, civilians can borrow heavily from this regimen. The Armasight Sidekick 640 Handheld Thermal Monocular provides a new entry point to start dominating the dark.
