US NightVision Corporation has a reputation as a leading manufacturer and distributor of the latest and highest quality night vision and tactical equipment that is known world wide. Their dedication to customer service, satisfaction and support is exemplary and sets an extremely high standard for the entire industry. Whether you're looking for body armor, a thermal imaging weapon sight, or a hands-free night vision goggle, USNV has a huge selection for you to choose from.
The USNV-PVS-14A Tactical Night Vision Monocular Goggle Kit is configured for the most demanding of night time applications and the most discerning of users. This kit contains the renowned USNV-PVS-14A: this NVD offers a power-house feature-set that includes a manual variable-gain control that provides the highest quality image at all times, regardless of the lighting conditions. The PVS-14A is engineered to operate on a single "AA" battery.
This extremely lightweight and versatile night vision monocular can be head-mounted, handheld or camera adapted. The heart of this PVS-14 sports a finely crafted third generation intensifier that resolves 64 lp/mm. Third generation intensifiers feature longer life spans, higher resolution and lower levels of bright light blooming. You can be sure that regardless of the situation, you will have a bright, clear and detailed image.
This Tactical Kit comes packaged with a head mount and a helmet mount, along with a number of other accessories that allow the operator to maximize the versatility of the USNV-PVS-14A.
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 this varies by manufacturer, so ultimately the generation of the intensifier tube is much more relevant than any quoted statistic when determining the maximum viewing range.
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.

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.

- ITT Third Generation Intensifier Tube
Third generation Pinnacle intensifier resolves 64 lp/mm
Pinnacle tubes feature a thin-film ion barrier on the MCP, and a gallium-arsenide coated photocathode. The power supply was redesigned and autogated for a significantly enhanced response to dynamic lighting conditions.
Compared to standard third generation technology, Pinnacle tubes deliver a 22% higher photoresponse, a 24% improvement in S/N ratio, a significant reduction in halo diameter, a 20% greater range of vision at night, and 10,000+ hours of tube life.
