Much like other binocular devices DTNVG’s have increased depth perception but this device is one of the lightest and low profiled units available weighing in at 18.9 oz and allowing the device to be stowed closer to the helmet when not in use. The DTNVG pods power up and down as they are each individually articulated.
The Dual Tube Night Vision Goggles (DTNVG) is a lightweight binocular night vision device made for the professional user. Having full depth perception is key for all sorts of terrain – with the DTNVG the user will have that at a very low weight with all features necessary. Low profile while folded to the helmet, self-supporting structure while stored and ergonomic design are key aspects of the DTNVG. The DTNVG uses advanced solid-state technology to control all aspects of the binoculars operations. In selecting advanced technology, it allows an expanded feature set with higher reliability and reduced power consumption to extend mission time.
In addition, many features were added to the DTNVG to simplify the operations by the user, with individual sideways ON/OFF for each eyepiece and Flip-Up ON/OFF when folded up preventing green back splash on the helmet in a folded-up position.At a weight of slightly above 500g it is lighter than any other binoculars in its category.To complete the DTNVGs feature it incorporates built-in IR LED for close quarter missions with separate IR-on indicator and Low battery indication in the field of view. The whole DTNVG is controlled by just one central pull switch in the front of the device. Functions are ON/OFF, IR-ON momentary, IR-ON steady (pull).Meeting the toughest mission standards, the DTNVG is built to MIL-STD-810G and can be used in submersible operations to 20M (66)Power source is a single CR123A battery for longer battery run time, but can also be powered by an AA battery using an adapter.
