Panobridge MK2 Night Vision Bridge
This item ships free, no credit card fees.
Whether it's driving a vehicle and seeing through nearly the entire windshield or clearing a building and not missing an unexpected visitor coming down the stairs in your periphery, the Noisefighters Panobridge will open up new possibilities for efficient and safe work at night, allowing you to focus more on the task at hand and less on panning and scanning for threats or points of interest.
Importantly, users can switch back to traditional straight-ahead tube orientation when desired. No specialized training is required and no other equipment is necessary. Simply attach two standard AN/PVS-14 monoculars to this featherweight bridge, snap the complete assembly into an industry-standard dovetail helmet mount, and start seeing everything you were missing before.
The Noisefighters Panobridge weighs only 1.5 oz total, making it the lightest bridge mount ever offered. This is approximately 70% less than the KVC® Universal Night Vision Bridge with OSS shoe sets installed, approximately 40% less than the IC® Dual PVS-14 Light Weight Mounting System, and almost 1/2 oz less than a single milspec J-Arm. With lightweight monoculars attached (like our Hyper Ether PVS with digital battery pack), it is possible to achieve panoramic night vision with two CR-123A batteries installed. The end result is lighter than many binocular goggles that do not include panoramic viewing, including one configuration of the current USSOCOM-issued PVS-31A (approximately 24 oz with remote battery pack), the older PVS-15 (approximately 23.6 oz with battery) and only a few oz heavier than ActInBlack® DTNVS.
The Noisefighters Panobridge changes the game by introducing the ability to peer through the gap between laterally-rotated monoculars with an unaided eye to use a handheld thermal imager, or view a scene using ambient light to better gauge distance, texture, color, or lighting. This is similar to the technique provided by using a single PVS-14 on a J-Arm, but it is now available for multi-tube use.
In addition, both monoculars attached to the Noisefighters Panobridge may be swung upwards separately, out of the line of sight, without disturbing the adjacent device's positioning. For extended periods when one eye must view scenes unaided by night vision or instead aided by a thermal vision system, this added articulation feature is crucial. This feature also allows the PVS-14's to better hug the helmet when the entire assembly is folded up in the stowed position, leading to a more balanced center of gravity and a reduced possibility of impacting door frames or other objects above the head.
A no-questions-asked, transferable lifetime warranty is included. The patent pending Noisefighters Panobridge is proudly made and assembled in the U.S.A. and was designed by a Marine Corps combat veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan.
Dovetail mounting interface
While the Panobridge brings panoramic night vision to the masses for the first time, this product does not exactly replicate the view that quad-tube goggles provides. Two milspec PVS-14s connected to the Panobridge provides an adjustable 40 to 75 degree field of view from two image intensifying tubes, while the most popular quad-tube goggle provides a constant 97 degree field of view from four image intensifying tubes.
