Night Vision Monoculars

Night Vision Monoculars (NVM) with built-in 2+ SuperGen or 3 Gen Image Intensifier Tube enable to conduct visual observation at night time, night land navigation, night sea navigation in starlight viewing conditions.

Night Vision Monoculars are used during military and special operations, night patrolling and site protection, night air and sea navigation; at rescue and emergency operations; for night vision filming and photography. Night Vision Monoculars can be also used for cross-country navigation with no white light illumination at night time.

  • Hand-held, head-mounted or weapon-mounted through special adapter
  • Power supply module (1 battery "AA") provides continuous "IR-on" monocular operation for 40 hours.
  • "Low battery" indication

Night Vision Monocular MNV-K with built-in IR-illuminator contains 2+ SuperGen or 3 Gen Image Intensifier Tube. This monocular is represented as a base model of Night Vision Monoculars produced by JSC Katod.

Special design of MNV-K enables to use interchangeable objective lenses that can be replaced in field conditions without seal failures of the device. The monocular can be hand-held, helmet mounted or head strap mounted for hands-free operation. MNV-K is available with a wide range of options and accessories.

Supply source 1,5—3 VDC. Complies with international IIT standard.
