Morovision Night Vision is a benchmark distributor of the latest technology in the world of night vision and accessories. By focusing on exceptional quality and craftsmanship, they maintain the highest standards for night vision specifications and customer satisfaction.
Morovision's AN/PVS-15 M953 is a fully featured military style night vision binocular. This light-weight NVG offers true-stereo depth perception, built-in auxiliary IR illumination, and specialized multi-coated optics.
As a true binocular with two objectives, two oculars, and dual third generation image intensifiers, the AN/PVS-15 M953 is capable of stunning stereoscopic night vision. Binocular style viewing offers enhanced depth perception and enhanced comfort during long-term viewing.
Low and no-light viewing with the AN/PVS-15 is handled by a pair of third generation intensifiers that deliver 64-72 lp/mm of resolution. These image intensifiers deliver the same performance characteristics as found in aviator night vision systems.
There are many different variables that affect the distance that one can see with a night vision device, among them the object's size, the level of details being sought from the object and the conditions of observation. Night vision devices detect much further under a full moon and clear skies than they will under a new moon and cloudy skies. Many different formulas are used to determine the statistic of maximum viewing range and the method of calculation varies by manufacturer. The important factors to consider when evaluating any night vision device are the intensifier tube's generation, s/n ratio, level of magnification, specified resolution, along with the clarity & light transmission efficiency of the optical system.
All night vision devices sold by B&H have mechanisms in place to protect the intensifier tube from a sudden burst of bright light, but this does not mean that bright light doesn't damage the device. No matter what, bright light in any form is not good for the longevity and performance of image intensifier tubes.
Note: Export of this device described herein is strictly prohibited without a valid export license issued by the U.S. Department of State office of Defense Trade Controls, as prescribed in the International Traffic in Arms Regulation (ITAR), Title 22, Code of Federal Regulation, Parts 120-130, and/or the U.S. Department of Commerce.

Third generation night vision devices feature a gallium arsenide photocathode that produces significantly more photoelectrons than the multi-alkali cathode of 2nd generation NVDs. Gallium arsenide provides a significant increase in photo-response and tube life. Their enhanced resolution, gain, and signal to noise ratio results in greater clarity and overall performance than previous generations of night vision.
