RNVG-VG (Ruggedized Night Vision Goggle – Variable Gain)
The RNVG-VG (Ruggedized Night Vision Goggle – Variable Gain) is a fixed bridge binocular night vision goggle which features an onboard illuminator and manual gain. The RNVG-VG offers superior ruggedness and durability from an 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-VG 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 – Variable Gain provides the user manual gain control. Manual gain give the user the ability to manually adjust the output brightness of their tubes by rotating a dial on the goggle. The ability to turn down system brightness decreases eye fatigue and helps the user retain more of their natural night vision.
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.
