Chromatra was founded by a group of seasoned innovators with deep experience in electro-mechanical design, military optics, and manufacturing. Our patented Gemini™ technology leverages the way the human brain perceives and processes color information. Gemini can provide color to a range of sensor platforms at light levels many times lower than has been possible with conventional approaches
We have chosen to apply this technology to our first product, ColorTAC™. The ColorTAC CVA-14 is a revolutionary advancement in night vision technology – a rugged device that will simply and quickly convert any PVS-14 NVG to provide you with a color image. It works with either green or white phosphor tubes to give you that critical color information that, up to now, you’ve been missing at night. Our objective is to provide you with exceptional quality products that improve your ability to perform in mission critical situations.
