Welcome to another edition of Did You Know?!?!?! Did you know it is illegal for non-US citizens to look through third generation night vision goggles manufactured by the United States? Doing so is subject to fines and/or incarceration in prison. I wasn’t able to find the exact wording of the law but I’m guessing the person in trouble would be the US citizen who supplied the equipment to the non-US citizen.
I discovered this while shopping for night vision goggles on the Internet. I’m guessing the US doesn’t want anyone to know how good their technology is in this area.
