 Check our home page for stock levels.


The F9800 is a Gen 3 18mm image intensifier manufactured by ITT Industries Night Vision. The F9800 (MX10160 type) is the most widely used image intensifier and is found in the AN/AVS-6 & 9 Aviators Night Vision Imaging Systems (ANVIS), most Gen 3 weaponsights, and many different goggles and monocular systems. Call or e-mail us for specific applications and use.

The F9800 series image intensifier consists of a high efficiency GaAs photocathode bonded to a glass input window, a microchannel plate (MCP) current amplifier, and a P-43 phosphor screen deposited on an inverting fiber optic output window. The Gen 3 photocathode is very sensitive to low radiation levels of visible and, especially, near infrared light. Tube lifespan is an average of 12,000 hours continuous use.

The F9800 is available in several grades (see chart below) based upon performance and blemishes (imperfections in the image). All F9800 tubes come with a tube data sheet listing the following specifications: Signal to Noise Ratio (S/N), Resolution, EBI (electronic background input), HALO, Photocathode Response (PR). These specifications are the most critical to the actual tube performance, as no two tubes are exactly alike.
