What is ITAR?
International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) is a United States regulation that controls the manufacture, sale, and distribution of defense related articles and services, and data. The ITAR covers a variety of items on the United States Munitions List beyond night vision (e.g. ballistic / missile targeting systems, etc) and serves to protect military related technologies and protect U.S. national security.
Violating ITAR is a serious crime that caries penalties that include fines & imprisonment. Night vision devices utilize protected technology that provide a unique overmatch advantage in night time operations. We ask that our customers help us safeguard this technology.
Our products are only available for sale to US citizens and permanent legal residents located in the U.S. We will only ship within the U.S.
Can I travel outside of the country with my night vision device?
Generally speaking, no. Transferring a device out of the country (whether shipping it or traveling with it) is considering an export of defense technology on the US Munitions List and is illegal under the ITAR without a license.
