PVS-14 WHITE PHOSPHOR TUBE SWAP
ADS and L3 Insight Technology worked together to offer customers an easy way to replace the PVS-14 green phosphor tubes with new white phosphor tubes.
White Phosphor Tubes
White phosphor decreases eye strain, is easily integrated with other technologies (thermal-fused, etc.), and ultimately increases survivability by allowing warfighters to complete their mission accurately and effectively.
- Lowlight and nighttime maneuvers appear more natural in black and white, with added contrast detail in shapes and shadows providing the operator with more visual information for assessment and acquisition.
- White phosphor offers various shades of intensity between black and white (over black and green), resulting in better contrast and depth perception.
- There is a marked difference in operational time going from approximately four hours for eye strain with green phosphor to 10 hours for eye strain with white phosphor.
How to Buy:
- Customers can order just the white phosphor tubes and replace them at the Unit level.
- This would essentially give them a new PVS14 in White phosphor around the same cost of ordering a new PVS14.
- Customers can send their used units back to L3 Insight Technology for upgrading.
- They can choose from either a repairing of any minor defects or opt for a complete re-kitting.
- In this instance, the cost is actually equivalent or cheaper than the unit simply purchasing the tubes and they're basically getting a new night vision device.
This sustainment upgrade allows the customer to more readily enhance their legacy systems with white phosphor tubes thus enhancing warfighter performance. The customer will essentially get back a brand new fully kitted PVS-14 in white phosphor for less than replacing the tubes, will get the budget approved faster, and will receive the product in-hand sooner than going through the stock system.
