CARLSBAD, Ca. - "Following a car pursuit late that night, the bad guy hid in a heavily wooded area. When our search team flushed him out, one of my officers on the perimeter used Xenonics' SuperVision™ to see the suspect sneaking out under the cover of darkness -- or so he thought. We apprehended him in a tunnel nearby. This particular bad guy was on Tarrant County's 10 most wanted list, and had evaded us seven times before," said Sergeant Richard Dotson, Fort Worth Police Department.

Xenonics CEO Chuck Hunter said, "We are gratified that our patented and proprietary SuperVision high-definition night vision played a key role in nighttime surveillance leading up to this important arrest. The experience of Sergeant Dotson and his team clearly demonstrates how law enforcement officers can do their jobs better and more safely with SuperVision. We believe that SuperVision, a new category of night vision, will be a vital tool for police departments across the country."

SuperVision is a hand-held, lightweight night viewing system that uses a sophisticated CCD sensor and digital signal processor to transform ambient light that is invisible to the naked eye into a sharp and clear image on an HDTV display. SuperVision provides unprecedented resolution, clarity, and range, and offers up to 8x zoom capability, something no other vision system can match.

According to Sergeant Dotson, "My team addresses high priority special crime issues in Fort Worth, so we are involved in surveillance, pursuit and apprehension of criminals every day. With the enhanced performance and safety that SuperVision provides, we can take back the night from the bad guys. SuperVision's zoom capability helps me position my officers for better cover, distance and control than Gen III night vision. SuperVision is a fantastic law enforcement tool that increases our efficiency and allows us to operate in ways we never could before."
