L3 NIGHT VISION DEVICE SUSTAINMENT UPGRADE
All DoD Branches
L3 Insight Technology’s PVS-14 Night Vision Device (NVD) is the most versatile Mil-Spec monocular in the world. It can be mounted on a helmet to use with either the left or right eye or used as a hand-held device. It comes with the highest un-filmed 2376 FOM white phosphor tubes available.
There is a large inventory of standard green phosphor PVS-14s in the military today, but L3 Insight Technology’s improved white phosphor technology allows for greater target detection and recognition.
Lastly, some of these units have been in the field for 12+ years and may be in disrepair, missing parts from the original kits or beyond their service life.
ADS and L3 Insight Technology worked together to offer customers an easy way to replace the PVS-14 green phosphor tubes with new white phosphor tubes.
White phosphor decreases eye strain, is easily integrated with other technologies (thermal-fused, etc.), and ultimately increases survivability by allowing warfighters to complete their mission accurately and effectively.Benefits:Lowlight and nighttime maneuvers appear more natural in black and white, with added contrast detail in shapes and shadows providing the operator with more visual information for assessment and acquisition.White phosphor offers various shades of intensity between black and white (over black and green), resulting in better contrast and depth perception.There is a marked difference in operational time going from approximately four hours for eye strain with green phosphor to 10 hours for eye strain with white phosphor.
There’s no question as to why a command or unit wouldn’t want to replace their green phosphor tubes with white phosphor. For DoD, the issue in readily replacing night vision devices comes down to budget or the color of money. It’s much easier to get approval for a sustainment upgrade on a product because it’s considered a modification as opposed to buying a new product.
