The NVD-BNVD Binocular is a dual tube night vision goggle with outstanding depth perception and supportability at an affordable price. 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 BNVD 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-BNVD now features a “Tactical Monocular Cutoff”, which turns off power to each channel of the binocular whenever a channel is rotated up out of the users’ line of sight. This eliminates stray light emitting from the monocular eyepiece, which would reveal the user to anyone else on the battlefield. The BNVD has an automatic system power cutoff whenever the BNVD is flipped up into the helmet mounted stow position, and then powers back on when it is flipped back down. This feature can also be turned off via a four position ON/OFF switch. The BNVD is submersible to 66 feet (20 meters) for up to 3 hours. The BNVD is available with an optional battery pack, which holds 3 “AA” Alkaline batteries for run times exceeding 50 hours.
The BNVD can be used with optional 3X Afocal Magnifiers. Each 3X Magnifier can be either slide onto each objective lens or screw into the threads on the objective lenses. For extended use, it is recommended to screw them on to prevent the lenses from falling off. These magnifiers transform the BNVD into a fixed 3X Magnification Binocular.
The optional external battery pack will only work with our Night Vision Devices manufactured binoculars with an external power port in order to extend the operating life of the system. If you would like to use this battery pack with this system, you must add the power port now when first assembled. The body cannot be modified afterwards. You may however, add the battery port now and purchase the battery pack at a later time.
With our expansive capabilities and strategic partnerships, we are able to custom build any of our NVD manufactured products with Image Intensifiers from either Elbit Systems of America®, Photonis® or L3Harris®. This includes green and white phosphor and thin or un-filmed image tubes. This system complies with MIL-STD 810G, MIL-PRF-A3256342A(CR) and MIL-PREF-49427(CR).
