The Nocturn Industries Katana night vision binocular assembled by Cold Harbour Supply is the lightest binocular on the market to-date at a functional weight of 17.76 oz. (497g) complete with Optronics PVS-14 lenses installed. Featuring our tried and true Photonis Echo White Phosphor MX-10160 auto-gain image intensifier tubes, each Katana is cleaned, assembled, purged, and tested in-house with precision tools using our digital purging rig, downdraft table, clean room, and custom collimation rig.
The Katana Standard uses milspec lenses made by Optronics Engineering in Israel. These lenses do not feature anti-reflective coatings, and will show more off-axis flaring than coated lenses such as those found on our Plus and Pro monoculars. There is also some pincushion distortion that is more evident when navigating urban environments where straight edges are more prevalent. We recommend this system for users looking a low-cost binocular solution primarily using this in rural environments.

The articulating design allows users to use one eye or both eyes enabling the simultaneous use of a thermal optic or other non-passive aiming systems. This also enables users to operate vehicles without limiting head space by eliminating the need to stow the unit upright or to tuck the pods against the helmet when stowed.
The Katana is simple with a minimalist design. An onboard battery with no remote power keeps things simple and wires off the helmet. For extended run-times a LEMO-port option is available to be special-ordered. Tactile and audible push button on/off in the cap (similar to flashlight buttons) reduces weight and reduces the footprint of the bridge. Individual pods power on/off when articulated to the side for single or dual eye use and to eliminate backsplash when stowed or rotated out.
An original new “Friction Lock Inter-Pupillary Adjustment” feature allows users to intuitively set IPD distance by using force-to-overcome to quickly and easily set IPD.
