The AGM NVG-40 is a dual-channel night vision system. The NVG is a compact, durable composite housing with advanced multi-coated optics. The device can be outfitted with a Gen 2+ or three high-performance image intensifier tube (IIT). The bright light cut-off feature ensures that the high-quality photocathode tube is protected. The NVG is also equipped with Manual Gain Control, which adjusts the brightness, providing the highest possible image quality even in changing light conditions. Operating from a single AA alkaline battery or CR123A battery, the NVG can run up to 20 hours. It is also equipped with an integral infrared illuminator for reading in the dark.
