Harris Unveils Night Vision Binocular Tech for Warfighters; Erik Fox Comments

Harrisnight-vision has launched a new night vision binocular the company designed to boost warfighters’ capacity to perform missions at night or under low-light conditions.

The F5032 night vision goggle consists of fixed and adjustable diopter lenses that will work to help military users adjust lenses to minimize eye fatigue during a mission, Harris said Wednesday.

Erik Fox, vice president and general manager of Harris’ night vision business, said the company released the lightweight device at a time when warfighters seek to address size, weight, power and ease of use concerns.

The binocular is equipped with an infrared illuminator for soldiers to conduct operations in low- and no-light combat scenarios, the company added.
