The RNVG is designed as the most rugged night vision goggle available. While most NVG’s 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!
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, it’s hard to beat aluminum for strength to weight ratios. Both the optic pods and bridge in the RNVG 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 RNVG eliminates exposed wires – something commonly found in ANVIS-style night vision goggles. As the optic pods traverse during interpupilary 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 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
