L3Harris BNVD-1531 Binocular Night Vision Device High FOM (2376+ FOM) Full Kit
Gen 3 Night Vision Goggles, Black, 2376+ FOM, Full Kit.
The L3Harris BNVD-1531 is a variant of the extremely popular USSOCOM issued AN/PVS-31A BNVD. The BNVD-1531 was developed by L3 based on requests from certain end users that wanted a lower-cost variant of the AN/PVS-31A BNVD that had both an adjustable diopter as well as an onboard IR illuminator–essentially, a hybrid between the Legacy AN/PVS-15 and the AN/PVS-31A, hence the nomenclature BNVD-1531.
Despite the nomenclature, the BNVD-1531 uses standard PVS-14 style optical lens assemblies, both objective and eyepieces, not PVS-15 optical assemblies. The BNVD-1531 also relocates the onboard BNVS external power connector from perpendicular to the dovetail mount as on the AN/PVS-31A to angled slightly towards the rear so that it does not interfere with the articulation of the right optical pod assembly, addressing one of the few end-user complaints with the AN/PVS-31A BNVD, that the BNVS connector could interfere with the range of motion of the BNVD's optical pod when installed.
While the addition of the IR illuminator and the use of PVS-14 style optics does increase the weight of the BNVD-1531 slightly relative to the PVS-31 BNVD, it is still a relatively lightweight, articulating system at around 19 ounces.
Other than these changes, the L3Harris BNVD-1531 is identical to the BNVD, including the use of high performance L3Harris Unfilmed image intensifiers and specially shielded and modified MX-11769 format tubes that allow manual gain control, as well as the common, onboard AA battery.
Each unit will also come with a full factory warranty and customer support. Each unit will also come with factory image intensifier Tube Data Records.
These units are NOT contract overruns—these are brand new manufactured units.
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 us, 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.
These units will come with tube data sheets and a 5 Year Extended Warranty through TNVC in addition to the L3Harris Factory Warranty
