Night Vision Goggle

The PVS-7 is the standard issue goggle for U.S. ground forces to conduct night operations. Using the latest 2nd/3rd generation image intensifier tubes the PVS-7 will perform in the darkest of nights. The system has a built-in IR Illuminator for no light operations and a high light cut off sensor for any sudden burst of bright light for protection. The PVS-7 is a completely MIL-SPEC system that has been ruggedized and waterproofed for harsh environments.

Made to be head/helmet mounted the PVS-7 is extremely lightweight adding to user comfort for long missions. By using one hand the PVS-7 can be dismounted quickly when used with the included head gear or the optional helmet mount. The unit uses 2 standard AA batteries that will provide 40 hours of continuous operation. Optional 3x, 4x and 5x magnifier lenses are available to increase the range of the goggle for long distance observations.
