The ARNVG (Articulating Ruggedized Night Vision Goggle) is an extremely rugged articulating binocular night vision goggle which features an onboard illuminator and battery pack capability. The ARNVG offers superior ruggedness and durability from a billet machined aircraft grade aluminum housing. Using an aluminum housing provides extra impact resistance which far exceeds MIL-STD-810H drop testing.
The ARNVG uses push button switches for both power and the Infrared Illuminator. The IR illuminator button is guarded by a fence with distinctive contours to prevent inadvertently activating the IR illuminator. Indicators in the viewing area alert the user if the IR illuminator is on, or if the unit senses a low battery condition.
The optical pods on the ARNVG articulate along the bridge allowing the user to adjust inter-pupillary distance and stow the goggle. When the goggle is helmet mounted and in the stowed position, the optical pods can be folded back flat against the helmet to minimize neck strain and better protect the goggle, and the user, from impacting overhead objects.
The optical pods automatically turn off when articulated up. This feature prevents illumination on your helmet when one side is articulated up and ensures that the image intensifiers are ‘off’ in the stowed position.In addition to superior durability, the Articulating Ruggedized Night Vision Goggle offers a flexible power supply. The ARNVG can be powered off 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.
