ARMASIGHT by FLIR BNVD-51 Gen 3Ge Night Vision Goggle/Binocular

Part Number: NSGNYX15M5G9EA1



The Armasight by FLIR BNVD is a dual-channel night vision system. With a 51° field of view (FOV), it provides a large visual field without needing to move the binoculars. The BNVD uses advanced multi-coated optics and is built to last with a compact composite housing. Operating from a single AA alkaline battery or CR123A battery, the BNVD can run up to 20 hours. Also equipped with an integral infrared illuminator for reading in the dark.
Experienced professionals know that nighttime scenes appear much more natural when displayed in black and white, as opposed to the typical “night-vision green.” Gen 3 “Ghost” White Phosphor IITs are characterized by high-contrast screens that offer black and white image, which provide clearer details, better contrast, and more distinct shapes and shadows.
