Recent design improvements to the aviator’s night vision imaging system (ANVIS) increase situational awareness, improve system performance, and enhance ergonomic characteristics. The device features binocular viewing for optimized depth perception and large 25 mm eyepieces that provide improved eye relief, accommodating operators wearing eyeglasses. Ergonomically designed interface controls (including inter-pupillary and vertical/fore-aft/tilt adjustments) provide improved system fields-of-view.
The Alpha Optics AO-AVS-9 accepts integration of different grades of image intensifier tubes, enabling performance characteristics to be matched to operational requirements. Rotary and fixed-wing versions are available.
