/// Binocular Night Vision Device for the U.S. Air Force

The L3Harris AN/PVS-31C BNVD is a compact, lightweight, Gen III high-performance white phosphor dual-tube goggle that is currently being used by the U.S. Air Force (USAF) for greater target detection and recognition in the toughest battlefield environments.

The BNVD’s improved white phosphor tube technology allows low-light and nighttime maneuvers to appear more natural in black and white, with added contrast detail in shapes and shadows providing the operator more visual information for assessment and acquisition. White phosphor provides varying shades of intensity between black and white (over black and green), resulting in better contrast and depth perception. Easily purchase the AN/PVS-31C BNVDs for your unit through the NSN.

The device has an ergonomic low-profile design and offers superior Situational Awareness compared to a single tube goggle. Working directly with input from SOF operators, the BNVD was designed to increase system resolution, significantly reduce head-borne weight, improve system center of gravity, provide additional operational utility and improve overall Situational Awareness compared to currently fielded dual-tube goggles. The white phosphor BNVD is a follow-on to the legacy, battle-proven AN/PVS-15 and AN/PVS-31 standard green phosphor night vision goggles.

Features

  • Manual system gain and focus adjustments for custom image quality optimization
  • Lightweight ergonomic design reduces head-borne weight and decreases neck strain
  • Optional diopter lenses optimize operator preference for visual acuity
  • Rotating binocular design allows low profile against helmet when in stowed position and the option to use as a single monocular
  • Works with currently fielded dovetail helmet mounts
  • Auto OFF when stowed; resumes power when deployed
  • LED indicators in left and right monocular alert the operator when the BNVD has no less than 10 minutes of battery life remaining
  • Replaceable/upgradeable I2 tube assemblies

Benefits

  • Includes Gen III Image Intensification Tubes (I2) with Auto-Gated Technology to prevent damage in high-light environments
