The PVS-14 is the standard night vision optic serving all NATO forces globally. Its versatility and durability make it the de-facto choice for Law Enforcement, security and hobbyists. PVS14s can be head-mounted, put on a weapon's Picatinny rail via adapters, or simply as a convenient hand-held device. The PVS-14 is also drop-tested to MIL-STD-810G standards (26 drops at 4 feet onto concrete)
As a monocular, the PVS-14 gives operators the ability to see in dark situations that would be impossible with the naked eye. The other non-PVS14-assisted eye is free to retain its natural night-adapted vision, increasing situation awareness.

ECHO tubes may have some blemishes in the image represented by small spots less than 0.3mm. From our experience, there is usually only one or two blems visible and when used in a dynamic capacity, does not adversely affect the user experience as they simply blend into the background image.
