Nightwave is an ultra low-light marine navigational camera built around SIONYX’s patented Black Silicon CMOS sensor. It allows mariners of all levels to easily spot obstacles and debris in moonless starlight without white light or expensive thermal cameras – navigating safely, avoiding collisions, and maximizing time on the water. IP67-rated, it’s built to operate in the toughest marine environments. 

Nightwave’s flexible mounting and video streaming setups allow both seamless integration with major brand MFDs and the option to view live video on your mobile device – so you can navigate confidently in the dark from any vessel with clear color digital night vision. 

CAPABLE - <1 mlx moonless starlight sensitivity allows you to see well beyond human eyesight.

AWARE - Stable 44º field of view increases situational awareness to spot unexpected obstacles, debris, markers, vessels, and more.

RUGGED - IP67 rating protects against water, sand, salt, and dust. Dry nitrogen purged to prevent lens fogging. Safely use Nightwave in inclement weather conditions. 

CONNECTED -  Flexible installation options allow seamless integration with major brand MFDs and WiFi video streaming to the new SIONYX mobile app.
