The PVS-14 multi-purpose night vision monocular is in widespread use around the world and is an outstanding choice for professional Night Vision applications. The Alpha Optics AO-PVS-14 uses the same framework, and its design is lightweight and tough with superb optics. It is a complete unit, including an image intensifier tube, a protective and generally water-resistant housing, compatible with different types of mounting systems. A built-in IR illuminator makes it possible to use the unit in low light or total darkness. LED lights indicate low battery and show the user that the IR illuminator is on.
The Alpha Optics AO-PVS-14 equipped with manual gain control enables an operator to manually adjust image brightness to adapt to current ambient light conditions. This feature becomes particularly useful in areas with frequently changing ambient lighting, for example in urban environment. The ability to control output image brightness helps reduce or completely eliminate the “night blindness effect”. When co-aligned with a red-dot type sight on a Picatinny rail the Alpha Optics AO-PVS-14 becomes an integral part of a formidable night vision weapons sighting system.
The most versatile night vision system on the market, the Alpha Optics AO-PVS-14 can be handheld, or head/helmet-mounted for hands-free use, or attached to a camera or camcorder for nighttime photography. Designed for the most demanding nighttime military or law enforcement operations, it is also available for a wide range of applications for civilian users.
