The PVS-14 is generally considered to be the most versatile night vision device available. They can be worn helmet mounted, hand-held, mounted to a telescope, camera, or other magnified optic for astronomy or surveillance. Their small size means they are easy to travel with and carry. They are small enough to fit in a GP pouch on a plate carrier without being obstructive.
Gain control gives the user the ability to increase or decrease the tube brightness..
Under extremely dark conditions, variable gain (also referred to as manual gain) allows the user to adjust the gain upward, giving a brighter image.
However, very high gain can create a "more noisy" image, and under high light conditions, the user can decrease the gain for a cleaner image or to prevent the washout of fine details in high light.
Additional features of the PVS-14 include an onboard IR illuminator and a red LED indicator light (light pipe) internal to the device (behind the eyepiece) which signals IR is active or battery is low.
