Power: 1x AA battery
The PVS-14 Alpha is currently the primary night vision optic used by the U.S. military and Special Operations units.
Powered by an Autogated Gen 3 image intensifier, the system has recently been redesigned to operate on a single "AA" battery. The PVS-14A includes a built-in IR illuminator, fully adjustable headmount and mil-spec multi-coated optics. Automatic Brightness Control and Bright Source Protection are standard.
The manual gain control feature allows the user to increase or decrease image tube brightness for best possible image contrast in high and low light conditions. The most versatile night vision system on the market, the PVS-14 Alpha can be used hands-free, weapons mounted or attached to a camera or camcorder for nighttime photography.
