The MK2 Mod1 version of the popular Noisefighters Panobridge is now optimized for popular thermal devices like the IRay RH25, PFalcon640, RL25, PFalcon384, and NOX18. Using the optional QD Dovetail Adapter, users have the choice of seamlessly using thermal on one eye, and night vision on the other to create a hybrid thermal setup. The Mod1 package now includes extended length PVS-14 arms. Extended length PVS-14 arms are designed to be used in tandem with the QD Dovetail Adapter, while the standard arms retain the same legacy height as the original Panobridge MK2.
The Noisefighters Panobridge is a night vision bridge mount that features an adjustable field of view to provide up to 75 degrees of viewing angle with any two PVS-14s, yet weighs less than a single J-arm. Now fully compatible with iRay MH25s and Flir Breach, the Panobridge MK2 comes with one free attachment arm for night vision / thermal fusion setups.
The Panobridge provides a panoramic night vision image by exploiting the brain's ability to merge split images from two outwards-angled monoculars into one cohesive picture. The adjustable field of view provides users with substantially-increased situational awareness, as well as the the flexibility to use the bridge in a traditional "straight forward" configuration if desired.
By utilizing two points of articulation along two axes, users can adjust the field of view to suit the task at-hand, or swing each monocular sideways for rapid stowage.
A common complaint of dual PVS-14 bridged systems has always been the associated weight. The Panobridge alleviates the total system weight of such systems and only weighs in at 42g. If used with a lightweight monocular, such as a Nocturn Industries Tanto, the total system weight can be brought down to under 550g with milspec optics and batteries, comparable to a dedicated binocular system while offering increased capability.
Usage with thermal monoculars
The Panobridge MK2 comes with a free mini-rail adapter that attaches directly to any iRay MH25v2 or Flir Breach's minirail. The thermal monocular can be mounted to either side and allows the user the flexibility to adjust the thermal image so that the image lines up best with the analog I2 image.
