Currently standard issue for the US Armed Forces, the PVS-14 is the first choice for conducting combat operations to include dismounted terrain navigation in extremely low light conditions.
The highly versatile Sentry PVS-14 system can be adapted from a hand-held to a hands-free single eye goggle or as a night vision weapon system when coupled to a daytime close quarters battle sight.
Simple user controls include a 3-position switch (OFF/ON/Momentary and constant IR). The built-in IR light is practical for map reading and illuminating close targets in complete darkness. The system’s Generation 3 image tube features Automatic Brightness Control and is protected by fully-automated sensors that shut off the unit within seconds if accidentally exposed to bright light. Sophisticated electronics turn off the PVS-14 when removed from the head or helmet mount or when shifted into to the “UP” position.
Lightweight, rugged and waterproof down to 66 feet, the PVS-14 Sentry is a powerful performer for use in confined as well as open spaces.
