Binocular Night Vision Device (BNVD) AN/PVS-31


The device has an ergonomic low-profile design and offers superior situational awareness compared to a single tube goggle. Working directly with input from Special Forces operators, the BNVD was designed to increase system resolution, significantly reduce head-borne weight and improve system center of gravity. 

L3Harris also offers the AN/PVS-31C configuration for the U.S. Air Force.
