The USNV-14B utilizes two USA manufactured (ITT 3rd generation, 64 lp/mm) image intensifier tubes to provide crisp, clear images under the darkest conditions. The dual tube binocular design offers greater performance than a single tube design; improved depth perception is an important benefit when it comes to operating vehicles or working on equipment at night. This NVD is extremely versatile; it can be used hand-held, attached to a PVS-7 head or helmet mount, separated into two night vision monoculars, or incorporated into a night vision weapons sighting system.
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.
