The PVS-7 is the most widely recognized and dependable United States Military night vision goggle system available. The AN/PVS-7B/D system has proven itself in combat due to its rugged, ergonomic design.
The PVS-7 is equipped with manual variable gain control so that the user can select the image brightness level, in order to properly adjust for ambient light levels in the environment, as well as a built-in infrared illuminator that allows the user to operate in total darkness. The PVS-7 also has an excessive-light cut-off feature that protects the image tube from bright light sources, and a flip-up shut-off feature when used with the optional helmet mount assembly. The PVS-7 is equipped with two LED indicators: yellow for a low battery, and red to alert the operator that the IR illuminator is on. Both are displayed on the eyepiece screen. Lightweight, rugged, and versatile, the Armasight PVS-7 can be hand-held, head-mounted, and helmet-mounted. The dismounted goggle can also be used as an excellent long-range viewer with optional afocal magnifier lenses
