With a total system weight that is less than 415 Grams, the new MINI B AAA 18mm, Dual Tube Night Vision Goggle with Single Gain Control is part of NVD’s new light-weight product line. This system features a fully focusable eyepiece that provides the end user the full US MILSPEC diopter focus range of +2 to -6, a close focus range of 9.8 inches (25 cm) and a focusable IR Illuminator that provides spot/flood capabilities.
The MINI B AAA operates on one “AAA” Battery which can power the system for 10+ hours. This “AAA” battery is housed within a detachable battery compartment which can be removed for additional weight savings when operationally used in conjunction with the system’s optional battery pack. The battery pack provides the MINI B AAA the ability to operate for a continuous 50+ hours.
The MINI B incorporates new high performance optics that are not only much lighter, but also offer higher performance than standard optics. Currently the AN/PVS-14 and most other night vision systems, use optics which were only designed for green (P43) phosphor image tubes. However these new optics were designed specifically to be optimized for both White (P45) and Green (P43) image tubes.
The MINI B also features a “Tactical Monocular Cutoff” which turns off power to each channel of the monocular whenever a channel is rotated up out of the users line of sight. This eliminates stray light from illuminating the users helmet, which would reveal the user to anyone else on the battlefield. The MINI B also has an automatic system power cutoff whenever the system is flipped up into the helmet mounted stow position, and then powers back on when it is flipped back down. This feature can also be disabled by the end user if needed.
The MINI B has been rigorously tested for US Military and DoD EMI compliance by an independent, Gov’t support facility, and qualified for conformance to MIL-STD-461G, RE102, RS101 and RS103. This means that MINI B has an extremely low electronic emission signature, making it nearly impossible to detect its use, even in close quarters. The MINI B was also shown to not be damaged nor suffer performance degradation when exposed to very high electrical field strengths, over a broad frequency range, as measures of electromagnetic susceptibility. These proven factors make the MINI B robust under the harshest of EMI conditions.
NVD can customize builds for our MINI B AAA 18mm system with image intensifiers from either Elbit Systems of America®, Photonis® or L3Harris®. NVD can additionally deliver many system applicable accessories for end-user kit customization to meet every low-light requirement for ground mission applications.
