    AN/PVS-14 Night Vision Monocular
    "Top-of-the-Line" Versatility is what you want, then look no further than the AN/PVS-14.

    Our MILSPEC AN/PVS-14 Monocular Kit from NV Devices uses only the highest quality L-3 or Harris (Exelis/ITT) Image Tubes, Optical Lenses, Housing Components and Electronics on the market today. Electro-Optical tools designed specifically to meet the diverse demands of our rugged Military and Law Enforcement Professionals. Like buying a car, you have many features like engine, transmission, and suspension that can make it a stock model or a high performance machine. With little differences on the outside to discern between the good, bad & the ugly, you have to read & understand the build sheet or take the salesman's word for it. NVD Units offer a 10 Year Warranty! L3 Units offer a 1 Year Warranty and KNV Units offer a 2 Year Warranty.
         Differences like the clarity of the optical lenses versus just glass; whether the components used in the power supply & electronics package are made in the U.S. or overseas or if they are new or used; whether you want the housing made in the USA that meets MILSPEC standards with rubber seals that allows submersion  without worry, or something made overseas that you can't splash with water; you want to be sure that when using your Helmet Mount, the housing has brass screws (not plastic or other cheap metal) to automatically turn the unit On/Off, saving your batteries and reducing the step of turning it back on in an emergency.

    The PVS-14 Night Vision Monocular is the current military issue night vision goggle for the US armed forces. It is also the preferred choice of many foreign (NATO) forces. Produced by the hundreds of thousands, the 14 will continue to march on for many years to come.

    The PVS-14 is the all around best multi functional night vision monocular available. Head or helmet mounted, the PVS-14 allows the user to retain their night adapted vision in one eye while viewing their surroundings through the illuminated eyepiece of the PVS-14. The new battery housing completes the perfect package by allowing the user to power off the unit when in an upright position and power on when flipped down.

    Another strength is its ability to be weapon mounted behind most collimated daylight aimers and Reflex sights such as the ACOG, Aimpoint and EOTech systems. This allows the user the ability to use their PVS-14 both as a night vision monocular for increased mobility and tactical awareness and as a short range weapon sight.

    Gain control gives the user the ability to increase or decrease the tube gain. Under extremely dark conditions, gain control allows the user to adjust the gain upward, giving a better image. Under high light conditions, details can be washed out due to an excess of light. Lowering the system gain can allow those details to be better seen. Additional features of the PVS-14 include an infrared LED with LED indicator and a low battery indicator.

    With our expansive capabilities and strategic partnerships, we are able to custom build any of our NVD manufactured products with Image Intensifiers from either Harris Corporation®, Photonis 4G®, or L3 Insight Technologies®. This includes green and white phosphor and thin or un-filmed image tubes.

    This system complies with MIL-PRF-49324(CR), MIL-PRF-49427(CR) and MIL-STD-810G.

    With more than one million systems fielded by the DOD and Armies around the world, the PVS-14 is the all around best multi-functional night vision monocular available. Parts & service for this system will be available for another 25+ years.

    Larger differences like the tubes (engines) can be selected to meet your needs, and with our access to virtually every system available, we will do our best to meet or exceed your expectations, without breaking your budget. Just like a car, even if you have a big block with ungodly horsepower, you still have to have other components designed to match its performance potential. You wouldn't put a Volkswagen Engine in an Indy Race Car, yet some manufacturers do just that to gain the competitive pricing edge and you are the one stuck wondering why you didn't call us.

    Let's talk about some of the uses of the AN/PVS-14 Monocular.

    The most common use is as a hand-held pocket scope that easily fits inside a BDU (Battle Dress Uniform) Pocket, or jacket pocket and is used for walking around & area surveillance.

         You can trust KERIF Night Vision to give you the most for your money and to be there for you should something go wrong. We don't just sell you a product, then wish you well; we take the time to talk with you personally on the phone, before, during, and after the sale to make sure you are 100% satisfied, not 99.99%! Yes, we answer our phones and respond to emails almost immediately. Don't believe me? Call me during normal working hours M-F 9AM-5PM PST and see how long it takes to get in touch with a REAL person!
         Don't hesitate to draw on our real world Military, Federal SWAT, and Law Enforcement experience, coupled with Technical Engineering, Infrared Lighting and Night Vision backgrounds to figure out the best solution to your problem. If we don't have what you need, we will do our best to find you a company that does. 

    TIP: By maintaining one eye to the darkness, while using the monocular exclusively will help prevent "Night Blindness" caused by molecules called "Rhodopsin". The Rod of your eye undergoes a change in shape as it absorbs light. Rhodopsin is the chemical that allows natural Night-Vision, and is extremely sensitive. When exposed to a spectrum of light, the pigment immediately bleaches and takes about 30 minutes to regenerate fully, although most of the adaptation occurs within the first five or ten minutes in the dark. Rhodopsin in the human rods is less sensitive to the longer red wavelengths of light, so many people use red light to help preserve night vision as it only slowly depletes the eye's Rhodopsin stores in the rods and instead is viewed by the cones. One of the best features of the PVS-14 style Monocular's is the Variable Gain Control Knob that works in conjunction with the Automatic Brightness Control to adjust the image for you to see it properly, without blasting your pupil into submission.  

         These are a few of the main drawbacks of the PVS-7 Type Goggles, because both eyes are stimulated with a bright green image that can't be adjusted beyond what the Automatic Brightness Control offers, and when the goggles are removed, you may have difficulty seeing anything for several minutes. That could prove fatal if driving, flying, or engaged in CQB operations.

    For prolonged use, a Headmount can be priceless. By using the chin straps and head straps, each unit allows for vertical & fore-and-aft adjustments for either left or right eye. For clear images, the objective lens and eyepiece (Diopter) focus for various levels of vision enhancement.
    Automatic Brightness Control and Bright Source Protection are standard

         The PVS-14 is also equipped with a built-in infrared light-emitting source and the variable gain control allows the user to increase or decrease image brightness for best possible contrast. Don't overlook the importance of having additional Infrared Lights to enhance the visibility of longer ranged targets, covertly light up dark overhangs and blind corners, and even mark positions, vehicles, personnel and other points of interest by using field programmable beacons.
    Infrared lights that are weapons mountable or hand-held, like the Steiner SPIR are a great enhancement to increase detection and recognition ranges.

    MILITARY USES: The AN/PVS-14 is utilized by ground troops for situational awareness, detection of threats and targets. Also used in combination w/3X or 5X Magnifiers for short, medium, or long range surveillance at night. Users can operate covertly.
    Law Enforcement Uses:
    The AN/PVS-14 is utilized by officers or agents for situational awareness, detection of threats and targets or long range surveillance in ground and tactical operations.
    Security Uses:
    Security personnel use the AN/PVS-14 for general situational awareness, detection of approaching threats and targets.

    Range Tests showed significant clarity and sturdiness when mounted on Military 5.56 Rifles. This versatile Night Vision System enables walking, driving, weapon firing, short-range surveillance and map reading in both moonlight and starlight conditions. When used as a Night Vision Weaponsight, you can use the standard Fixed Height Mount and the front iron sight to aim, but to increase accuracy and combat effectiveness; you'll still need something else to help you aim.
    *Some Pinnacle or Thin Filmed PVS-14's aren't recommended to use above 5.56 caliber weapon types unless you have a "Weapons Grade Tube" installed. When ordering, please tell us your set-up so we can install a tube designed specifically to handle the recoil of higher caliber weapon types that sometimes create a "Blooming Effect" or Spots to appear, and may eventually render the tube inoperable, and void your warranty. Spending a little more now can save you thousands later.

         The easiest to obtain an aiming point is to use LASER's mounted to the top or side of your weapon and sighted in. KERIF Night Vision carries several variations of LASER Aiming Systems that are guaranteed to work for your setup. Please call for more details on what Laser systems may be available to you since some are Restricted to Federal Agencies only and require End User Agreements.

         If you need to increase your range capabilities periodically, and still want that CQB set-up for close range situations, the SpecterDR (Dual-Role) Optical Sights from ELCAN are designed to work with Night Vision and offers you the option of either 1X to 4X Magnification or 1.5 to 6X, in addition to a Red Dot Center Point, and Ballistic Ranged Reticle (in either 5.56 or 7.62* weapon types).
    Shown above with a ZeroLens Adapter.

    Another method that can pinpoint a target, using 1X (no magnification) is to combine the PVS-14 Night Vision Monocular with an EOTech Holographic Sight, either mounted directly behind the Sight or Head-Mounted for continual visual enhancement and approach the sight as necessary.

    And yet another method, again a using 1X Red Dot Sight is to combine the PVS-14 Night Vision Monocular with an Aimpoint Red Dot Sight, either mounted directly behind the Sight or Head-Mounted for continual visual enhancement and approach the sight as necessary.

    For Hand-Held use, you can attach a 3X Afocal Magnifier to increase your recognition and detection ranges. When you increase the magnification, you also decrease the available 40˚FOV (Field-of-View) down to a 13˚FOV, which understandably equates to 1/3 of the PVS-14's capabilities. The 5X Afocal Magnifier reduces the FOV to 7.7˚(1/5 of the image), so you have to have a steady hand, a resting spot or a Tripod to fix on an object.

    TIP: 5X Magnifiers are NOT recommended for use with Head/Helmet Mount applications because of the Weight, and the narrow 7.7˚Field of View makes it difficult to maintain position on your intended target. If you plan to use a tripod for stabilization or use the system from a sitting or prone position, then the 5X Magnifier will work fine.

    Magnifiers usually include a Slip-On Adapter for the PVS-14 and PVS-7, that allows you to quickly install them on the objective end and remove it instantly when necessary.
    TIP: If you aren't going to be standing still or making moderate movements, we recommend you thread the magnifier into the objective lens aperture to prevent it from accidentally falling off and breaking.
    Both magnifiers are interchangeable with PVS-7 Goggles.
