The Ultralight Articulating Night Vision Binocular

This conversion for the PVS-15 platform reduces the weight of a fully built standard PVS-15 by 2.9oz and gives the users full articulation of the binocular. The articulating design allows users to use one eye or both eyes enabling the simultaneous use of a thermal optic or other non-passive aiming systems. This also enables users to operate vehicles without limiting head space by eliminating the need to stow the unit upright or to tuck the pods against the helmet when stowed.

It is simple with a minimalist design. An onboard battery with no remote power keeps things simple and wires off the helmet. Push button on/off in the cap to reduce weight and reduce the footprint of the bridge. Individual pod power on/off when articulated to the side for single or dual eye use and to eliminate backsplash when stowed or rotated out.

An original new “Friction Lock Interpupillary Adjustment” feature allows users to quickly and easily set IP stop distance with a simple rotate into place and forget design. No tools or knobs.

This unit is light weight without compromising strength. It is rugged and exceeds MIL-STD-810G plus has been drop tested to the NATO 1.5 meter drop test standard. All our products are designed and hand built in New Hampshire, USA.
