The Night Vision Depot (NVD) Binocular Night Vision Device (BNVDG) is a dual tube night vision goggle/monocular that offers outstanding depth perception and is now enhanced with Gain Control. Each eyepiece has an independent gain control knob to allow the user to adjust the tube brightness (gain) lower to compensate for overly bright conditions or to increase the gain under extreme dark conditions. The user can also lower the gain in one eye so that when the binocular is removed one eye is more dark adapted.
The BNVDG can be used as a monocular by choosing which side you want to use as your night vision eye and rotate the other side/arm of the binocular up and out of the way. Each arm is tight enough so that the rotated arm will not fall down, but stay in its user adjusted position. To use as a binocular, rotate both sides down or when night vision is no longer needed, shut off and rotate both sides up and out of the way. Never before could you utilize the depth perception of a collimated dual tube goggle and the convenience of a monocular in one system without switching equipment.
The BNVDG is lightweight and can be worn comfortably for extended periods of time. When not in use and rotated upright it should not interfere with anything above the user's head. This reduces risk of damage to the goggle and mount from rapid vehicle exits. With this flexibility there are endless possibilities and combinations.
The NVD-BNVDG utilizes MIL SPEC accessories and optics. It also includes head and helmet mounting options for the AN/PVS-7D, AN/PVS-14, AN/PVS-7A/C, AN/PVS-15 and AN/PVS-18. Optional ANVIS mount is available. Switching from one mounting system to another can be accomplished by the end user within minutes.
The NVD-BNVDG utilizes MIL SPEC parts and accessories and is built with either Commercial, MIL GRADE or MIL SPEC ITT/Exelis GEN III Pinnacle Auto Gated image intensifier tubes.
