ALL TNV NIGHT VISION SYSTEMS ARE SEMI-CUSTOM UNITS BUILT TO ORDERCURRENT LEAD TIME ON THE TNV/RNVG SuperGain is 5-10 Weeks
The latest image intensifier tube technology from L3Harris, and is one of the most significant evolutions in Generation 3 night vision systems and performance since the introduction of Unfilmed technology and available only at TNVC as a new premium option.
Over the years, TNVC has been fully committed to making the very best and most advanced, High-Performance MIL-SPEC, duty-ready night vision, thermal, and visual augmentation systems technology available to ALL customers.
Manufactured by L3Harris and distributed by TNVC, SuperGain Unfilmed White Phosphor image intensifier tubes are already in use with the United States military, including Special Operations Forces in some of the DoDs most elite formations. These new SuperGain image intensifiers increase the Luminance Gain (Gain) specification from the standard 40,000-80,000 fL/fc for OMNI VIII to between 100,000-120,000 fL/fc, greatly increasing the image intensifiers ability to amplify and collect light, resulting in a noticeably brighter image with increased low light performance and extending operational envelope and ability to see into dark areas.
ALL SYSTEMS WILL BE 2376+ MINIMUM FOM
SuperGain image intensifier tubes have undergone extensive testing both by the U.S. Armys Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate (NVESD) at Fort Belvoir as well as USSOCOM and other Special Operations Forces organizations, and are currently being fielded and in-service around the world in the newest, most technologically advanced night vision systems in the force, including the AN/PSQ-42 ENVG-B Advanced Goggle as well as panoramic fusion goggles.
From the end-users perspective, the SuperGain tubes will be noticeably brighter than standard Unfilmed White Phosphor tubes under most conditions and will provide more useable information in extreme darkness. However, the most significant difference that users in the field will see is the ability to see deeper into dark corners and underbrush, allowing them to detect potential threats beyond the range of typical image intensifiers. This can be a significant advantage in both urban areas / inside of structures as well as in more rural areas with vegetation and heavy canopy and subterranean operations.
While many consumers, both government and commercial have been focused on FOM (Signal to Noise Ratio multiplied by Center Resolution expressed in lp/mm) as a metric for image intensifier performance and image quality, with manufacturers pushing the envelope of performance through improved methods and processes.
Luminance Gain is typically set by the manufacturer, and is the measure of how well an image intensifier can amplify light, and is one of the most critically important factors of image intensifier performancein fact, the term Failure, in MTTF (Mean Time To Failure), commonly used to describe tube longevity and durability and expressed in terms of hours, is broadly understood to represent a roughly 50% loss of Luminance Gain.
Nevertheless, Gain has typically been set by the manufacturers at a lower setting (in accordance with MIL-SPECs) due to concerns that too much Gain could lead to increased and undesirable noise in the image, which can be true with lower performance tubes. However, with modern advances in tube manufacturing processes and consistency, L3Harris has been able to increase average tube performance by over 50% in the last six years, with modern tubes having less noise overall, allowing L3Harris to increase the tube Gain, and therefore increasing the amount of useful information provided to the user without the same levels of increased noise.
In order to maximize the benefits of the increased Gain and ensure image quality these new SuperGain systems from TNVC will ONLY be available with a minimum Figure of Merit (FOM) specification of 2376+, the highest minimum performance specification currently available to the wide market, and with actual average tube performance exceeding that of current USSOCOM specifications.
Not only do SuperGain tubes provide improved light amplification and more information to the user, but effects can be felt on the users end as wellthe overall brighter image allows the pupil to remain smaller, even in low light conditions where image intensifier tubes begin to dim, effectively improving the users vision and allowing them to take full advantage of the information provided by the SuperGain tube as well as reduce eye fatigue from long term use. Meanwhile, neither image intensifier life, nor reliability are affected, with SuperGain tubes being every bit as durable and reliable as typical Unfilmed White Phosphor image intensifier tubes.
Experience the latest evolution of Image Intensified Night Vision devices from L3Harris, being used in the toughest conditions for the most critical missions by U.S. DoD and Tier 1 Special Operations worldwide.

The TNV/RNVG is designed to be one of the most rugged night vision goggles available. While most NVGs are built with molded polymer housings, the RNVG features a 7075 aluminum chassis for unsurpassed rigidity and structural strength. All articulation points have been beefed up to increase impact resistance, giving users one tough goggle. Designed and machined at AB NightVision, and finished / assembled at TNVC, the Ruggedized Night Vision Goggle is ready to face the toughest customers and harshest environments!
This version of the TNV/RNVG-SG (SuperGain) is built with new-production L3Harris Gen. 3 Un-Filmed White Phosphor SuperGain image intensifier tubes. SuperGain is the latest image intensifier tube technology from L3Harris, and is one of the most significant evolutions in Generation 3 night vision systems and performance since the introduction of Unfilmed technology and available only at TNVC as a new premium option.
Manufactured by L3Harris and distributed by TNVC, SuperGain Unfilmed White Phosphor image intensifier tubes are already in use with the United States military, including Tier 1 Special Operations Forces in some of the DoDs most elite formations. These new SuperGain image intensifiers increase the Luminance Gain (Gain) specification from the standard 40,000-80,000 fL/fc for OMNI VIII to between 100,000-120,000 fL/fc, greatly increasing the image intensifiers ability to amplify and collect light, resulting in a noticeably brighter image with increased low light performance and extending operational envelope and ability to see into dark areas. In addition, all TNVC SuperGain systems have a 2376+ Minimum Figure of Merit (FOM) specification, the highest performance level available to the wide market.
Traditionally, the weakest point in a night vision goggle is the joint between the optic pods and the bridge. This point accounts for the majority of catastrophic breakage when a NVG is dropped or hit. Part of this reason is that these joints are either polymer on polymer or metal on polymer interfaces. While there are some seriously impact resistant polymers out there, its hard to beat aluminum for strength to weight ratios. Both the optic pods and bridge in the TNV/RNVG-SG are machined from solid billet 7075 (a material that is 36% stronger than most common steel), to give end users the strongest NVG on the market (not to mention a little piece of mind). Careful design and advanced machining keep the weight down to 20 oz. with a battery installed.
The TNV/RNVG eliminates exposed wires something commonly found in ANVIS-style night vision goggles. As the optic pods traverse during interpupillary adjustment, they ride across an electrical contact strip. This provides much increased weather/element resistance and reduces a traditional failure point. IP adjustment is accomplished with by turning dual knobs on either side of the bridge; the same as any traditional ANVIS goggle.
The TNV/RNVG utilizes a single CR123 battery, and comes with an auxiliary power connector for use with ANVIS-style auxiliary battery packs such as the USGI Low Profile Battery Pack or AB Night Vision Ground Optimized Battery Pack.
TNVC assembles the TNV/RNVG with MIL-SPEC AN/PVS-14 eyepieces and objective lenses. These battle proven, familiar parts add to the considerable strength of the system. Controls are simple. If you are familiar with a PVS-14, you will be right at home with the TNV/RNVG. The standard power knob is located on the front of the bridge. It features on/off controls, and active IR illuminator mode. Just like a 14, simply pull the knob out and twist it all the way to turn on the built-in infrared illuminator. The TNV/RNVG features a BNVS dovetail mount interface.
RNVG housings are anodized black, but FDE Cerekote finishes are available. (Other colors available as Special Order)
