The RNVG-A, also known as ARNVG, (Articulating Ruggedized Night Vision Goggle) is an extremely tough, full featured night vision binocular.  The housing is billet machined from aircraft grade aluminum and designed to handle challenging real-world environments.  During drop testing the housings far exceeded military requirements of MIL-STD-810H drop testing, surviving falls onto bare concrete from heights beyond what lenses and image intensifiers can handle.

The design includes push button switches for power and an 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 unit is powered by either an onboard 123 battery or auxiliary power from a battery pack using a 4 pin LEMO style connector.

Each optical pod can be rotated up out of the users view as desired, freeing one or both eyes for natural sight as conditions demand.  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 with the optical pods folded back against the helmet.  The force required to swing the optical pods is user adjustable using a coin.

The goggle is available in Flat Black and Flat Dark Earth.  The components of the binocular are media blasted to give a non-reflective matte finish, then black anodized for durability.  For the FDE option, Cerakote, a proven firearms finish, is applied over the anodizing to give a tough, attractive finish.

We offer premium quality lenses with our systems from US Milspec vendors. Lenses are very important when it comes to image quality, and while lower quality lenses are still useable, lower quality lenses will result in lower perceived resolution, and higher perceived image distortion.

      We are happy to offer Photonis 4G+ tubes on pre-order. Fulfillment is estimated for January 2023. 4G+ is the highest grade of tube offered by Photonis and is the choice for many European special military and police units. They have improved autogating, improved flare coatings, and significantly higher tube specs and quality of assembly over ECHO tubes.

      4G+ Minimums are as follows:
      FoM: 2200 or higher
      SNR: 30 or higher
      Resolution: 70 lp/mm or higher
