At SHOT Show 2018 on booth #621, FLIR Systems showcases a variety of thermal and night vision products for the tactical and outdoor markets, featuring new products, and existing FLIR and Armasight product portfolios. FLIR Systems is expanding its Armasight by FLIR night vision lineup with new monocular and binocular families with hand, weapon or helmet mounted options. Each family is available with Generation 2 or 3 night vision technology and multiple lens configurations, including an upgraded 19mm lens that offers a 51-degree field-of-view (FOV) for 25% more viewing area. All models include manual gain control, up to 40 hours of run time from a single AA alkaline or CR123 battery and feature a flip-up-turn-off, flip-down-turn-on design when mounted to a helmet.
The Armasight by FLIR BNVD Compact Dual Tube Night Vision Goggle/Binocular is a dual-channel night vision system. With a 51° FOV, it provides a large visual field without needing to move the binoculars, making it easier to track moving objects. The BNVD uses advanced multi-coated optics and is built to last with a compact composite housing. The BNVD can run up to 20 hours. An optional battery pack mounted behind the helmet extends the use up to 80 hours. It is also equipped with an integral infrared (IR) illuminator for reading in the dark.
For hands-free operation, BNVD includes head and helmet mounting options, it can be used as binoculars, as a monocular, goggles or stowed out of the way. Operated by a single gain control knob, the BNVD utilises features like a flip-up-turn-off, and a flip-down-turn-back-on option when mounted to a helmet. At 0.61kg (1.35lbs), measuring 113x 118x73mm (4.4x4.6x2.8in) it is built with a tough, ergonomic composite housing that is water and fog resistant. This product is ITAR controlled.
