The Alpha Optics AO-MUM-14A is a high performance modular, hand-held passive night vision monocular device that utilizes a single Generation 2+, or Generation 3 intensifier tube to provide crisp, clear images under the darkest conditions. The Alpha Optics AO-MUM-14A “single tube / single eyepiece” approach to night vision missions is based upon the proven concept that independent use of each eye maximizes the ability to operate under a wide range of low light conditions maintaining optimal situational awareness and flexibility of equipment applications.

Small, lightweight and versatile, the Alpha Optics AO-MUM-14A gives you a high performance 2nd or 3rd generation system in the smallest package available. With its unique electronic switch performance, the Alpha Optics AO-MUM-14A does not require an adapter to convert from AA to CR123A batteries. The Alpha Optics AO-MUM-14A can be weapon mounted, head/helmet mounted, handheld, or optionally attached to cameras and extender 3x/5x afocal objective lenses. Also available a dual-system head/helmet mount that allows two Alpha Optics AO-MUM-14A’s to become one binocular system. The on-axis rail system permits the Alpha Optics AO-MUM-14A to use a wide range of mounting options.
