The NGI/DTNVG-XLS Dual Tube Night Vision Goggle is the culmination of years of design efforts at ACTinBlack, including extensive feedback from professional end-users, including both U.S. and European Special Operations Forces. The DTNVG housing is a lightweight, yet rugged night vision binocular designed for professional end-users such as Military and Law Enforcement personnel, but are as at home with hunters and night vision and tactical training enthusiasts.  Professional end-user input has led to one of the highest quality / lowest weight systems on the market.

The new Night Goggles, Inc. NGI/DTNVG-XLS systems are built and collimated in-house by Night Goggles, Inc. at our Redlands, California facility using matched Elbit F9400XLSH Generation 3, Auto-gated, Thin-Filmed White Phosphor image intensifier tubes with factory data sheets, and we are proud to be able to offer them at some of the lowest prices ever for Factory-New, Gen. 3 WP systems!

Elbit Systems of America-Night Vision (ESA-NV), based in Roanoke, Virginia, formerly the Night Vision division of Harris Corporation prior to their merger with L3 Technologies and previously known as ITT/Exelis is one of the premier manufacturers of Generation 3 image intensifiers, and has long been known as an industry leader in visual augmentation systems, including the AN/PSQ-20 ENVG Night Vision/Thermal Fusion system, and was recently awarded the contract for the United States Marine Corps’ Squad BNVG program.

While TNVC’s MIL-SPEC systems still represent the absolute best performance money can buy, these new Night Goggles systems are an excellent option for those who are looking for a lower-cost Gen. 3 White Phosphor NVG, and are sure to be popular with hunters, enthusiasts, and tactical shooters alike! These COM-SPEC systems are the absolute best value for a new WP goggle system without paying for TNVC’s premium MIL-SPEC systems.

The Elbit Systems of America F9400XLSH image intensifier tubes being used in the NGI/DTNVG-XLS systems are considered “MIL-SPEC fallouts,” and therefore “Commercial Spec” or “COM-SPEC” tubes that do not necessarily meet the MIL-SPEC requirements of the ESA-NV YH-series image intensifier tubes, COM-SPEC does not mean that they are “bad tubes” or poor performers. The XLSH and SLH series tubes are still excellent performers that simply failed to meet one or another of the requirements to be considered a “MIL-SPEC” tube. These requirements may range from certain values being outside of MIN/MAX tolerances or cosmetics—however in many cases may be indistinguishable from YH-series tubes based on data sheets, meaning that any flaws or defects that preclude a MIL-SPEC classification could be microscopic and/or largely invisible in normal use.

The very lowest performance figures of these XLSH tubes approximate U.S. OMNI V performance, often considered to be the first of the modern “high performance” night vision, while the highest spec’ed units rival the best modern “super-tubes.” We do not sort them beyond ESA-NV’s specs, and individual tubes can vary in performance from tube to tube, however no hand-select option will be available for these systems.

While the NGI/DTNVG-XLS is built with COM-SPEC image intensifier tubes and ACTinBlack housings, the rest of the system is built with 100% MIL-SPEC components, including optics and subcomponents sourced from USGI contractors. By building these units entirely in-house, we are able to tightly control all QA and QC of these devices, including collimation to ensure that they meet our exacting standards without relying on third-party assemblers, have them drop-shipped, wait on inventory from suppliers that can lead to quality issues, customer support issues, and the substitution of sub-standard parts in assemblies. And since NGI sources these COM-SPEC tubes directly from ESA-NV, and we have chosen to pass on our savings to YOU, our customers, by offering these Night Goggles NGI/DTNVG-XLS systems at some of the lowest prices ever for articulating Gen. 3 WP Binocular Night Vision Goggles.

Non-MIL-SPEC tubes should mean non-MIL-SPEC prices!

Even for these COM-SPEC units we WILL NOT not compromise by purchasing lower cost, non-standard, non-MIL-SPEC optics and housing components from vendors looking to make a quick buck on products that “look the part,” but are unable to perform the same as MIL-SPEC components–the price savings is entirely in the image intensifiers. This also means that these units can come backed by Night Goggles’ and TNVC’s Lifetime Limited Warranty, covering the housing and system for the lifetime of the unit, and 10 years for the image intensifier tube. These “COM-SPEC” systems are the absolute best value for a new WP goggle system without paying for TNVC’s premium MIL-SPEC systems.


The DTNVG incorporates advanced solid state technology to control all aspects of the system’s operation.  This allows for expanded feature set and higher reliability than other NVG’s – all while having reduced power consumption for extended mission time.  The first thing users will notice is the reduced weight compared to most conventional goggles, but that is just the tip of the spear.

The DTNVG features independently pivoting or articulating optic pods.  This allows the user to individually pivot each pod out of the way – effectively allowing the binocular to be used as a monocular, or to be folded out of the user’s line of sight without having to stow the entire goggle system. While this is not an exclusive feature, the DTNVG takes the concept a step further.  When the optic pods are pivoted up (either together or one at a time), they automatically shut off.  This further reduces power consumption while also increasing operator safety by preventing splash back from the stowed optical pod.

While the articulation points can be the weakest point in any articulating BNVG design, ACTinBlack has gone to great effort to ensure that the articulating hinge of the DTNVG is the strongest and most durable articulating BNVG design currently on the market, and unlike competitors’ products is designed to be able to be maintained and serviced by qualified technicians, rather than requiring it to be returned to the manufacturer.

The DTNVG features an integral IR illuminator with independent “IR On” and “Low Battery” lights provide useful status updates to the user while looking through the goggle.  It attaches to any standard dovetail “spade” helmet mount.
