The AN/PVS-7B/D has long been a standard issue Night Observation Device with US Military Forces and their allies. It is the most widely recognized NV unit in the world and features excellent performance and user-friendly controls. The PVS-7 can be configured for hands-free helmet/head mount or hand held operation. It includes a built-in IR illuminator for short-range IR assistance in complete darkness and has an in-unit LED warning light to remind the operator that others wearing NV devices can see the IR source.
This model of the PVS-7B uses a Gen3 Litton Auto-Gated image intensifier. These are top-of-the-line tubes that offer protection from bright light sources. This safe guard helps protect your eyes by diminishing bloom and halo from bright lights, allowing you to stay on target and on mission. The Auto-Gated tube also helps protect the unit from exposure to bright light, ensuring the sensitive tube is not damaged.
The PVS-7 has served US warfighters for years and continues to give them the edge on the battlefield today. Also in heavy use by Law Enforcement Agencies across the country, we find this unit to be a great performer for the price. We are also seeing an interest in the PVS-7 by recreational users for camping, boating, wildlife studies, and stargazers.
Export of Night Vision Equipment or related accessories (such as manuals) is strictly regulated by the US Department of State in accordance with the guidelines of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). It is a major crime to ship or carry US manufactured night vision devices outside the borders of the United States, punishable by fines and prison sentences. Ignorance of these regulations will not hold up in court. By purchasing night vision equipment from TNVC, you attest that you will not attempt to export or carry this night vision equipment outside the borders of the United States. Also, it illegal to allow a non-US Citizen to look through US Gen3 Night Vision Devices, even on US soil. Again, this is a crime punishable by fines and prison sentences.
