UL BNVD-SG Ultra Light Night Vision Binocular – Single Gain

UL BNVD-SG Ultra Light Night Vision Binocular – Single Gain

SKU: NVG-BNVD-450310

Gen 3 Elbit White Phosphor Minimum FOM (Figure of Merit) 1900.


At only 465 Grams, the UL BNVD-SG, ultra light dual tube goggle with Single Gain incorporates new high performance optics that are not only much lighter, but also offer higher performance than standard optics. Currently the AN/PVS-14 and most other night vision systems, use optics which were only designed for green (P43) phosphor image tubes. However these new BNVD optics were designed specifically to be optimized for both White (P45) and Green (P43) image tubes.


The UL BNVD-SG includes features not found in other dual tube goggle designs in this weight class. These features include: EMI compatibility, Full Diopter Adjustment Range (-6 to +2), Infrared LED, and most importantly: a close focus range of 9.8 inches. This is critical when trying to read maps or do close up work such as clearing a weapons jam.


The UL BNVD-SG 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 UL BNVD-SG has an automatic system power cutoff whenever the UL BNVD-SG 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 UL BNVD-SG is submersible to 66 feet (20 meters) for up to 2 hours. The UL BNVD-SG is available with an optional battery pack for an additional 85+ hours of continual use for extended missions


The UL BNVD-SG 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 UL BNVD-SG 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.


The UL BNVD-SG has been rigorously tested for US Military and DoD EMI compliance by an independent, Gov’t support facility, and qualified for conformance to MIL-STD-461G, RE102, RS101 and RS103. This means that UL BNVD-SG has an extremely low electronic emission signature, making it nearly impossible to detect its use, even in close quarters. The UL BNVD-SG was also shown to not be damaged nor suffer performance degradation when exposed to very high electrical field strengths, over a broad frequency range, as measures of electromagnetic susceptibility. These proven factors make the UL BNVD-SG robust under the harshest of EMI conditions.

This system complies with MIL-STD 810G, MIL-PRF-A3256342A(CR) and MIL-PREF-49427(CR).
