Redlands, California—

Rolling right along with new product and partnership announcements, Tactical Night Vision Company (TNVC, INC.) is proud to announce their partnership with Nocturn Industries of Exeter, New Hampshire as a Premium Stocking Dealer with the launch of the TN/MNVB-R Manticore Night Vision Binocular, Ruggedized, including a special introductory bundle including the Norotos “USMC Variant” LoSto push-button dovetail (BNVS) mount!

Founded in 2020 as a side-project by Jeff Melochick, an R&D engineer for a major defense manufacturer, NocturnIndustries has quickly risen to become a market leader in innovative design and manufacturing in the night vision space, often integrating novel features and technologies into their goggle and accessory designs while still maintaining affordable price-points compared to comparable goggle systems, including their latest Ultralight Articulating Night Vision Binocular housing design: The UANVB-FCR Manticore Manual-gain Night Vision Binocular, Ruggedized (MNVB-R). TNVC-built TN/MNVB-R Manticore systems will feature L3Harris Unfilmed White Phosphor image intensifier tubes in both standard gain systems as well as the advanced, high performance SuperGain image intensifiers with a 2376 Minimum Figure of Merit (FOM) providing unmatched clarity and resolution in even the darkest conditions.

“We’re very pleased to embark on this new partnership with Nocturn, Jeff and his company have been leading the charge in making high quality night vision products more widely available and accessible, and with their new ruggedized and molded housing designs, they’re setting a new standard for what consumers can expect out of a night vision housing system,” stated Augee Kim, TNVC COO.

As an introductory offer, all TN/MNVB-R Manticore goggle kits will also include a Norotos LoSto push-button “USMC” BNVS mount in either black or coyote at no extra cost. The “USMC Variant” of the LoSto is a lightweight versionof the standard LoSto push-button mount originally designed for and issued with the Marine Corps’ AN/PVS-31D SBNVG system, providing a light weight, low-profile, rigid mounting system compatible with most common “Universal” or “L4” pattern NVG helmet mounting shrouds.

As a Premium Stocking Dealer, TNVC will be carrying a comprehensive selection of Nocturn’s products, including accessories and components as well as their full line of Ruggedized and molded polymer Manticore and Katana goggles, as well as embarking on collaborative design ventures, stay tuned for more exciting announcements from TNVC and Nocturn Industries!  

The TN/MNVB-R Manticore, Ruggedized:

The TN/MNVB-R is a lightweight, independently articulating binocular night vision device, utilizing standard PVS-14-format optical lens assemblies (including PVS-14-compatible light weight optics such as RPO) with adjustable diopter settings, Litton-style dovetail (BNVS) mounting interface, and manual gain control, allowing the end-user to perfectly dial in the system gain (brightness*) according to user preference and environmental and ambient lighting conditions. It also features an onboard IR illuminator for navigation, independent tube cut-off when the optical pods are rotated to a stowed position, as well as user-adjustable interpupillary distance (IPD) adjustment tension and “hard stops” to limit travel, making it one of the most full-featured goggles currently available on the market.

The TN/MNVB-R is available with both standard AN/PVS-14 MIL-SPEC optical lens assemblies or RPO 3.0 light weight lens assemblies and the housing is CNC machined from 7075-T6 and 6061-T6 aerospace grade aluminum as well as utilizing Grade 4 titanium components, with a complete system “working weight” of ~16.5 ounces (468 grams) when utilizing RPO 3.0 lightweight optical lens assembles (19.79 oz. with standard PVS-14 lens assemblies). The housing is finished with a matte black Type III hard coat anodize, as well as an optional Coyote H-series Cerakote.

The Manticore has been tested to MIL-STD-810H standards, and is powered by either a single 3v CR123 battery providing ~25 hours of battery life under normal conditions or a system-native low-profile, 2-Pin LEMO external power connector that is compatible with NocturnIndustries’ optional external battery pack.

All TN/MNVB-R Manticore systems will also feature TNVC’s industry leading Lifetime Limited Warranty, as well as no-cost hand-select image tube options (hand-select requests may affect lead times).

Founded in 2005, Tactical Night Vision Company (TNVC) is a Veteran-Owned small business which specializes in providing industry-leading visual augmentation systems, modified-COTS solutions, and systems integration as well as training, education, and life-cycle support to government and commercial customers alike.
