The L3Harris BNVD-1531, the newest addition to the L3Harris extensive portfolio of Image-Intensification (I2) systems, combines the most-desired features from the rugged, battle-proven AN/PVS-15 and AN/PVS-31 to deliver additional capability to the user in a small, lightweight package. The 1531 is the result of the L3Harris focus on continuous product improvements in the areas of size, weight, performance and power consumption. The 1531 offers a lightweight, ergonomic design similar to the AN/PVS-31 but with significant weight reduction over the AN/PVS-15. It also incorporates features such as: adjustable diopters, manual gain adjustment, individually rotating monoculars and an integrated infrared illuminator. The 1531 can be operated as a helmet-mounted, head-mounted or handheld system and is field maintainable with limited equipment.
The 1531 is provided with high-performance, Gen III image intensifiers manufactured by L3Harris. They feature auto-gating power supplies and are available in green (P43) or white phosphor (P45) at performance levels ranging from 1600 to greater than 2376 Figure of Merit. The L3Harris white phosphor technology provides the user with greater target detection and recognition. Low-light and nighttime maneuvers 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. The 1531 is the best-value solution to deliver night vision capability that is interchangeable across multiple operators.
