A military standard, the PVS-7 is combat-proven binocular that can be used as a hands-free goggle or a hand-held, long-range observation device when coupled with optional 3x, 4x and 5x magnifiers. The Generation 2+ black/white version utilizes the latest in white phosphor technology. White phosphor imaging is claimed to produce a crisper, more contrasted image than the standard green phosphor technology. Many night vision users are finding this to be the case and have started switching over to the more natural looking image which these scopes produce. AN/PVS-7 US Military Night Vision Goggle is available to allies in a special export version.
With a single image split into a dual-eye configuration, the PVS-7 provides an excellent performance-to-cost ratio.
With a focus on simplicity for combat environments, the PVS-7 features simple user controls, fully automated image tube protection, a built-in infrared illuminator with a momentary and continuous-on switch plus IR operation and low battery indicators displayed within the user’s field of view.
The fast (f1.12) one-power lens provides optimal low-light capabilities as well as freedom of movement for completely handsfree operation.
