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 PVS-14 Sentry system can be adapt 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. Each goggle system ships with a fully adjustable Head Mount assembly and adaptor to switch between right or left eye use.
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 Sentry when removed from the head or helmet mount or when shifted into to the “UP” position.
Light weight, rugged and waterproof down to 66 feet, the PVS-14 Sentry is a powerful performer for use in confined as well as open spaces.
