RNVG (Ruggedized Night Vision Goggle)
The RNVG (Ruggedized Night Vision Goggle) is a fixed bridge binocular night vision goggle which features an onboard illuminator and auxiliary power connector. The RNVG offers superior ruggedness and durability from a 7075 Aircraft Grade Aluminum housing. Using an aluminum housing provides extra impact resistance and protects important contact points on the goggle.
The optical pods on the RNVG move along the bridge by turning inter-pupillary distance adjustment screws on each side of the bridge. This allows the user to perfectly position the pods over their eyes for the best image. One benefit to this adjustment style is once the IPD adjustment is set it will not move on the bridge. This allows for a fast deployment of the goggles when flipped up on a Wilcox G24 mount.
In addition to superior durability, the Ruggedized Night Vision Goggle offers flexibility for power supply. The RNVG can be powered off of the on board CR123 battery or with a lemo port compatible battery pack. This offers the user the ability to retain the ruggedness of a dovetail mounting system while running an external battery pack.
RNVG Ocular Lenses
The RNVG uses PVS-14 ocular and objective lenses. This makes them familiar to many users and adjustable to each users eyesight. In addition to PVS-14 ocular lenses, RNVG’s can be built with DEP Ether Ocular lenses. DEP Ether ocular lenses are 30% lighter than PVS-14 eyepieces, offer a larger eye box, and lock in place once focused.
