The Binocular Night Vision Device with Gain Control (BNVD-G) is a new dual tube night vision goggle which offers outstanding depth perception and is now enhanced with Gain Control. Each eyepiece has its own gain control knob to allow the user to adjust the tube brightness (gain) lower to compensate for overly bright condtions or to increase the gain under extreme dark conditions. The user can also lower the gain in one eye so that when the binoculars are removed one eye is more dark adapted.The BNVD-G can be used as a monocular by choosing which side you want to use as your night vision eye and rotate the other side/arm of the binocular up and out of the way. Each arm is tight enough so that the rotated arm will not fall down, but stay in its user adjusted position. To use as a binocular, rotate both sides down or when night vision is no longer needed, shut off and rotate both sides up and out of the way. Never before could you utilize the depth perception of a collimated dual tube goggle and the convenience of a monocular in one system without switching equipment.
The BNVD-G utilizes MIL SPEC optics. It also uses head and helmet mounting options from the AN/PVS-7B/D, AN/PVS-14, AN/PVS-7A/C, AN/PVS-15 and AN/PVS-18. Switching from one mounting system to another can be accomplished by the end user within minutes.
Power for the BNVD-G is supplied via one AA battery for up to 40 hours of continuous use. This system is submersible up to 66 feet of water.
The BNVD-G uses standard AN/PVS-7B/D and PVS-14 parts and accessories for simplified in-the-field supportability. These parts include demist shields, sacrificial windows, LIFs, lens caps, eyecups, neckcord, soft case, head or helmet mount, IR spot/flood lens, 3X magnifiers & compass assembly.
The BNVD-G is also available with ANVIS -Blue objectives for air crew use. This blue coloration cannot be detected with night vision.
All Systems are Gen III Pinnacle (Thin Filmed Autogated) Image Intensifiers
Non Gated systems are available by special request.
