A night vision device (NVD) is an optical instrument that allows images to be produced in levels of light approaching total darkness. They are most often used by the military and law enforcement agencies, but are available to civilian users for hunting and other outdoor activities. The term usually refers to the complete unit, include an image intensifier tube, a protective and generally water-resistant housing, and some type of a mounting system. Many night vision devices also include sacrificial lenses, IR illuminators, and telescopic lenses.
A specific type of NVD, the night vision goggle (NVG) is a night vision device with dual eyepieces. The device can utilize either one intensifier tube with the same image sent to both eyes, or a separate image intensifier tube for each eye. Night vision goggle combined with magnification lenses constitutes night vision binoculars. Other types include monocular night vision devices with only one eyepiece which may be mounted to firearms as night sights.
