The L3Harris AN/PVS-31C BNVD is a compact, lightweight, Gen III high-performance white phosphor dual-tube goggle that is currently being used by the U.S. Air Force (USAF) for greater target detection and recognition in the toughest battlefield environments.
The BNVD’s improved white phosphor tube technology allows low-light and nighttime maneuvers to appear more natural in black and white, with added contrast detail in shapes and shadows providing the operator more visual information for assessment and acquisition. White phosphor provides varying shades of intensity between black and white (over black and green), resulting in better contrast and depth perception.
The device has an ergonomic low-profile design and offers superior Situational Awareness compared to a single tube goggle. Working directly with input from SOF operators, the BNVD was designed to increase system resolution, significantly reduce head-borne weight, improve system center of gravity, provide additional operational utility and improve overall Situational Awareness compared to currently fielded dual-tube goggles. The white phosphor BNVD is a follow-on to our legacy, battle-proven AN/PVS-15 and AN/PVS-31 standard green phosphor night vision goggles.
