The PVS-14 is the standard-issue night vision optic serving US forces on the front lines of the Global War on Terror. Its phenomenal versatility makes it the premier choice for Law Enforcement Professionals as well. PVS-14’s can be mounted on helmets for hands-free use, behind weapon optics, or simply as a handheld device.
This product is subject to ITAR/EAR Export Controls. Please visit our ITAR/EAR page (click here) or contact us for more Information.
As a monocular, the PVS-14 provides Gen3 night vision aid to one of the operator’s eyes, leaving the other to retain its natural night-adapted vision. This is important when changing light conditions in the field cause the user to go back and forth between aided and un-aided vision. Military and Law Enforcement operators need the ability to instantly switch between night vision and white light as the situation develops.
Due to overwhelming customer demand, TNVC has decided to offer L3Harris Thin-Filmed White Phosphor to our regular product line to provide customers with an intermediate option between our Green Thin-Filmed units, and our premium, Unfilmed White Phosphor units. These tubes will still meet or exceed MIL-SPEC OMNI VIII performance specs, but with a white phosphor color instead of the more traditional green. Understand that unfilmed image intensifier tubes will have superior performance, especially in extremely dark conditions with less scintillation, than thin-filmed image intensifier tubes.
NOTE: Due to the high demand and our high spec standards for WP tubes and system QA/QC, current lead times approximately 18-22 weeks on new TNV/PVS-14 orders.
The TNV/PVS-14 is a U.S.-made Generation 3 night vision monocular based on the standard issue AN/PVS-14. Our professionally-trained and experienced technicians assemble the TNV/PVS-14 according to U.S. Military guide lines, using factory-new parts and hand-selected image intensifier tubes. We offer all TNV/PVS-14’s in several kit configurations to make sure end users get everything they want, while not paying for accessories they do not need.
This version of the TNV/PVS-14 is built with a new-production L3Harris Gen3 image intensifier tube. These tubes meet the current U.S. Military OMNI VIII contract specs and, provide some of the cleanest images available. L3Harris is one of two factory manufacturers of Gen3 image intensifier tubes in the United States. They provide the majority of goggle systems used by U.S. Special Operations Forces. These tubes are weapons rated for 5.56x45mm NATO. Please note that while the L3 tube tube meets all of the OMNI VIII Military Specifications, the entire TNV/PVS-14 system cannot be classified as MIL-SPEC because it is assembled by TNVC at our facility. Only fully factory-assembled L3 and Elbit Systems PVS-14s, built for a U.S. Military contract can be called MIL-SPEC. However, the TNV/PVS-14 provides the same performance.
The U.S. Army and U.S. Marine corps standards governs both the Maintenance and Repair of our PVS-14 monocular systems. These Preventative Maintenance Checks and Services are outlined in: ARMY TM 11-5855-306-10, MARINE CORPS 10271A-10/ 1A. These U.S. Military maintenance standards state that upkeep maintenance is not required unless something is visibly broken or the unit is malfunctioning. A copy of these standards is included with each system. But, if you feel the need to send your TNV/PVS-14 in for us to check over, you can do so once a year at no charge. However, un-needed disassembly can lead to premature parts wear and fatigue of your system. Preventative maintenance is not recommended.
