Individuals wearing night vision goggles are often operating in mobile and unsteady environments. These may include situations where the user is on foot, in a road-going vehicle, or an aircraft. Getting the most value out of night vision goggles necessitates keeping the optical elements in line with the user’s pupils and their direction of sight. Given the environments of use, this is a difficult task and one that Navy researchers have addressed with an adjustment device for such optical elements.

The Navy’s solution allows for the mounting of two monocular scopes typically used in night vision system onto a yoke. Secured in the yoke, these optical elements can be tilted and the degree of tilt can be locked in place by a simple dial on either side of the device. Further, the yoke allows for adjustment of the distance between the monocular elements to fit the distance between a person’s pupils.
