TNV/ Sentinel Binocular Night Vision System - L-3 OMNI VIII

Up-Armored Aviation-Style Goggle

$7,899.99 — $8,034.99

The TNV/Sentinel BNVS is a unique night vision system, adaptable to the needs of Warfighters, Law Enforcement Professionals, and Civilian Sportsmen alike.  Designed in direct response to the ground deployment of ANVIS Aviation Goggles (and their subsequent breakage due to not being rugged enough for that environment), the TNV/Sentinel provides the operator with a ton of useful features not found in other systems.  The Sentinel program was developed by Adams Industries as a way to provide ground forces with an up-armored version of their coveted ANVIS goggles.  Special Operations Forces have long used ANVIS goggles on the ground because of the superior performance of the optics and tubes compared to conventional systems.  But, aviation goggles were never designed to be deployed outside the protection of a cockpit and their more fragile nature has been a bane to SOF units.  Enter the Sentinel.

The Sentinel program was initiated as a way to provide the features desired by SOF operators in a much more rugged package.  It features an ultra-rugged machined composite housing, bolstered by aluminum front and rear plates on the bridge.  Like the ANVIS systems, Sentinels utilize worm drive interpupillary adjustment (however, there is no creaking and rattling as found in the aviation goggles).  On top of that, the Sentinel is submersible to 66′ which should put a smile on the face of anyone who has ever tried to use ANVIS goggles in the rain or snow.

Perhaps one of the most unique aspects of the Sentinel is the user-swappable mount interface.  The Sentinel can be field-adapted to either standard dovetail mounts or ANVIS-Style ball detent mounts.  When used in the standard dovetail configuration, the Sentinel is powered by a single on-board CR123 lithium battery.  It will plug into all standard dovetail helmet mounts such as the Wilcox L4 G24 and the Norotos INVG.  Switching interfaces is fast and simple; requiring the removal of four screws before replacing the dovetail with the ball detent.  The ball detent adapter interfaces with standard ANVIS goggle mounts such as the popular Adams Industries Surface ANVIS Mount or the legacy USGI ANVIS mount.  Power is supplied by a remote battery pack on the back of the helmet and allows for longer run times.  Helmet mounts are sold separately.

Controls are similar to PVS-14 goggles with a simple twist on/off power knob that also activates the onboard infrared illuminators.

We build our TNV/Sentinel Goggles with L-3 Infinity OMNI VIII Image Intensifier Tubes.  These Gen3 tubes offer unparalleled clarity, resolution, low light performance, and durability.
