Harris introduces new night vision binocular

28th October 2016 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Harris Corporation has introduced a new F5032 lightweight night vision binocular, aimed to reduce eye fatigue while increasing night and low-light visibility, the company announced on 26 October.

The F5032 has a 25cm, close-range focus capability for near-sight functions. It has adjustable and fixed dioptre lenses that remove the need for a user to change static lenses for mission-specific or personal requirements. It also allows the lenses to be adjusted during long missions to reduce eye fatigue.

The binocular also has an integrated infrared illuminator that eliminates the need for the warfighter to carry a separate illuminator. It has image intensifiers to operate in no-light and low-light combat scenarios.

Erik Fox, vice president and general manager, Harris night vision business, said: 'This new Harris lightweight binocular delivers much more capability than any other fielded models. We're excited to make these available at a time when reduced size, weight and power and ease of use are major concerns for warfighters in a complex tactical environment.'
