Blind as a bat no more

Blind as a bat no more

(Yes, we know bats aren’t blind, still sounds good though)
October 30, 2008, Tempe Az–NIVISYS Industries announces their military grade night-vision system  is now available for public purchase.

NIVISYS is a name new to many but they have been around for some time.  NIVISYS makes an extensive line of ultra-quality military specification infrared, LASER, and night vision systems for military and law enforcement.  Due to NIVISYS’ advanced technology, these systems have been restricted to government use, require proof of U.S. citizenship, and restricted outside the U.S. unless State Department approved.

Finally, NIVISYS has a system they can sell to civilians.  It’s a Generation III unit designated MUM-14 (Multi-Use Monocular) that also meets all U.S. military specifications for combat use.  Rob Lowe, Sales Manager says “The MUM-14 is a top level high-resolution piece of gear. What separates NIVISYS apart from other companies is our complete and continuous after sale support infrastructure.”

Why own one? Because it’s ideal for security, covert work and let’s face it, they are fun for any night recreational use or any situation where seeing what can’t be seen is desired.

Size: The MUM-14 is the smallest and toughest system available anywhere.  It is designed for hand-held operation, helmet mount, head-mount, and firearm.  As a head-mount unit, it affords users night vision while keeping their naked eye available for observation and/or gun-sight acquisition.

For use even in total darkness it features a built-in infrared flashlight emitting light only visible through the MUM-14.  The MUM-14 uses a single AA battery for 20-plus hours of use or a single CR-123 three-volt battery for 40-plus hours of operation.

NIVISYS products are ruthlessly tested in altitude, heat, cold, water, and humidity chambers.

NIVISYS is making the MUM-14 available in a special package containing the MUM-14, quick detachable picatinney weapon mount and complete night-vision head-mount system.

Warrantee:

One-year and if needed, the service to back it up for many years thereafter.

Consumer Beware: There is a plethora of low-end, marginal import stuff out there and most has no factory support or warrantees. Much of this stuff is little better than a match. Gen III is the highest night vision level.  There is no such thing as a Gen IV or V as some hype might lead consumers to believe.

    Night Vision products are unique. They are great for the Noctural Animal Watchers. I purchased a pair of binoculars for my husband. I believe my 4 year old enjoys them more than anybody in my family. There are many uses for Night Vision Products.
