The DTNVS (Dual Tube Night Vision Skeletonized) is a lightweight folding binocular built on proven technology and enhanced for greater reliability verse previous generations of Night Vision Binoculars. The DTNVS binocular combines lightweight materials and a low profile when folded to the helmet which reduces neck strain during extended missions.
The DTNVS binocular has a full feature set with individual sideways ON/OFF for each eyepiece and Flip-Up ON/OFF when folded up preventing backsplash on the helmet. To complete the DTNVSs’ features it incorporates built-in IR LED for close quarter missions with separate IR-ON indicator and low battery indicator in the field of view.
The DTNVS uses standard CR123A batteries as commonly found in lasers or flashlights. A single battery provides over 25 hours of run time. However, as the pods shut off when flipped up and therefore halve the power consumption, most users report up to 35 hours on a single battery.
The DTNVS features a fiber-reinforced polycarbonate body with a matte-black, corrosion resistant finish. It is waterproof to 20 meters (66 feet) for 2 hours.
