Night Vision technology was invented by Germany during WW2. German research and equipment acquired by the US Army was continued, producing the first experimental device, the Starlight Scope, in the late 1950's. In 1961 the first goggles were developed where they had limited use in Vietnam and on the DMZ in Korea, and wider use later in the Vietnam during the war.
