AN/PVS-22 Universal Night Sight™ (UNS™) is a high-resolution Clip-on Night Vision Device (CNVD) that mounts on any MIL-STD-1913 rail interface forward of an existing scope, adding night vision capabilities to daytime target acquisition platforms. The Universal Night Sight™ (UNS™) utilizes a full MIL-SPEC Gen 3 (autogated pinnacle) image intensifier tube, a fast f/1.15 catadioptric lens for a brighter and sharper image in starlight, and patented permanent boresight alignment technology. The unit is installed, operated, and removed without tools and without affecting boresight (permanent boresight alignment). The unit can be mounted on a spotting scope for long range reconnaissance, hand-held as a Night Observation Device (NOD), or used in other night-time operations requiring night vision capabilities. Optimized for medium-range sniper weapons, assault rifles and machine guns Including the MK11, M16, SCAR-H, M240 & 300 Win Mag. Effective on all weapons from carbines to .50 caliber semi-automatic sniper rifles.
