The 2.7x50 Challenger Gen 1 Night Vision Monocular from Pulsar is a multi-purpose NVD featuring a second generation image intensifier, built-in infrared illuminator, accessory rail, and two 1/4"-20 threaded mounts. The Gen 1 intensifier tube is protected from excessive light levels and prevents damage to the viewer's eye by automatically deactivating the device when exposed to a bright light source. Two mounting options allow the observer to tripod-mount the monocular or attach it to head gear for long-duration viewing.
Included with the Challenger NVD is a 100mW infrared illuminator that will enhance detail of the viewed image and extend the visible range of the monocular as well as enable the observer to see in pitch darkness. Additional functionality is provided by an integrated Weaver rail for attaching a long-range IR illuminator or other NV accessory.
This configuration of the Challenger is equipped with a 70mm f/1.4 lens system that transmits a 13° angle of view and is capable of being focuses as close as 6 ft. A 50mm objective lens allows the optical system to gather adequate light to create a night vision image that is rich with detail and contrast. The Challenger's 42lp/mm minimum resolution renders more than enough detail for recreational viewing and surveillance tasks.
