MoroVision is one of the world's largest distributors of ITT night vision equipment. The company not only sells ITT systems like the PVS-7 and PVS-14, it also packages these systems in kits that include a carrying case, accessories, and mounts. One of MoroVision's most popular combination systems matches an ITT Night Enforcer PVS-14 monocular with an EoTech holographic sight that features the EOLAD infrared laser.

The NE PVS-14 is a lightweight, single-battery design that features the auto-gated, thin-filmed Pinnacle image intensifier tube and variable gain control that allows the user to increase or decrease image tube brightness for better image contrast in varying light conditions.

Night Optics USA

Night Optics USA distributes a wide variety of night vision tools. The company also makes some really cool accessories for night vision systems. The Day/Night adapter is a nifty sub-$300 gadget that allows an operator to mount a PVS-14 night vision monocular behind his or her rifle optics, converting it into a night vision sight. To use the rifle optics in daylight, all an operator has to do is flip the PVS-14 out of the way.

Another useful accessory offered by Night Optics is the NO/NVG-23 Stereoscopic Goggle/Binocular. This inexpensive device allows the user to take two Mini-14 monoculars and temporarily convert them into a binocular system for driving and other operations that require depth perception.
