Dunwoody, left, looks through an AN/TAS-4 thermal night vision sight during her recent visit to Tobyhanna Army Depot. Ruben Fabunan, right, chief of the Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Directorate's Man Portables Branch, explains the night vision capability of the TOW. Soldiers use the TAS-4 to sight in a target when using the TOW system. The thermal sight detects radiated (infrared) heat from objects and converts it to an electronic video signal that lets Soldiers see targets primarily at night and in battlefield conditions.
