People often ask, which NV monocular does delta use?
Let’s find out!
Which NV Monocular Does Delta Use?
The NV monocular that delta use is the NV-GS1. It has a very similar design to the NV-GS2, but with a few differences:
- The NV-GS1 uses an OLED display instead of an LCD display the NV-GS2. This makes it easier for the user to read and write text messages while using the device.
- There are no physical buttons on the side of the NV-GS1, so you can’t accidentally press them when your hand is in front of the lens.
- The NV-GS1 doesn’t have a built-in microphone, so you’ll need to buy one separately if you want to record audio.
- You can only attach the NV-GS1 to the NV-GS1 via a magnetic mount (not included).
- The NV-GS1 comes with two different types of batteries: AAA or AA.
N-Vision GT-14 Night Vision Monocular – Generation 3 Delta
GT-14 is an excellent tactical night-viewing monocular designed and produced by N-Vision Optics for the most demanding professionals who need top-quality, reliable performance, and unmatched value.
- Weight: 1.5 oz / 40 g
- Dimensions: 5.6 x 2.8 x 0.9 inches / 14 x 7 x 2 cm
- Lens diameter: 4.7 mm / 0.18 inch
- Field of view: 6° horizontal/ 8° vertical
- Eye relief: 10mm
- Waterproof rating: IPX4
- Battery type: CR123A lithium battery
The N-Vison GT-14 night-viewing monocular has a built-in infrared illuminator, LED flashlight/torch, speaker, mic, compaster, barometer, thermometer, accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, light sensor, proximity sensor, vibration motor, touch screen, camera, videorecorder, Wi-Fi module, bluetooth module, microSD card slop, USB port, DC pow
It has a wide range of features including a camera, distance measuring, detecting objects, motion detection, voice recording, and so on. You can take pictures outside or inside.
The GT-14 has an innovative ergonomic design that makes it easy to operate even when wearing gloves. It also reduces the likelihood of mistakes during use in extreme weather.
It uses one CR-123 lithium-ion rechargeable battery to keep the weight down and ensures reliable operation at all times.
The monocular has an invisible to the human eyes short-range infrared illuminator to help perform tasks that need to be done in total darkness, such as mapping, repairing things, etc.
Accessories include standard or flip-up facemask and helmet mounts; a rifle mount that attaches to Picatinny rails is also available for situations where GT-14 must be used with tactical night-sights.
GT-14 can act as a handheld device with optional 3x afocal attachments for long-distance observations.
GT14DL1 offers the highest-resolution generation 3 image intensifier tubes available today, with a resolution of 64 lp/M (typical) and maximum luminance of 1000 cd/m², and a dynamic range of up to 100,000:1 (typical).
GT-14DL3 is available with the lowest cost Generation 4 image intensifier tubes with resolutions up to 64lp/cm typical. These models offer a maximum luminance of 1000 cd/m2 and a dynamic contrast ratio of 50,000:1. They also provide excellent color fidelity.
Night Vision Technology
The N-Vision Night Vision System uses the latest generation of Image Intensifier technology, which is known as Super Inorganic Thin Film Technology.
These offer excellent sensitivity and high quantum efficiencies. They are capable of seeing objects at levels as low as 0.01 Lux, which is equivalent to moonshine.
Image Intensifier Tube Technology
The N-Vision NVG System utilizes the latest generation of image intensifier technology known as Super Inorganic Thin Film.
These image intensifier tubes are based on the super thin film (STF) development by Sony Corporation.
They are extremely sensitive, producing bright images even under low lighting levels. Their high QE (quantity of photons emitted per electron) makes them ideal for night-time imaging applications.

Night Vision Selection
Night visions can get complicated really quickly. So it helps to know the basics. The core of night visions all come down to the imager, or as most people refer to it, the camera. The camera is where your picture quality is measured. Light photons enter the camera and are converted into electrons by a photocathode.
They are amplified by a micro-channel electron multiplier tube (MCP), which allows you to see an intensified picture.
Night-time visibility depends on having a source of light to illuminate objects. Your NVG (night-time visual device) won’t work if there is no light at all.
If you’re lucky enough to be able to see a full moon at night, you might be able to see things in great detail.
We usually think of green-scale when we talk about nighttime vision, but most NVG goggles will have a green phosphor screen. However, white phosphors are becoming increasingly popular.
White phosphor produces a clearer and cleaner picture than grayscale. Grayscale refers to images produced by combining both black and white pixels into one color.
White phosphorus has been used for centuries but is now becoming more popular as it becomes more mainstream.
Night vision goggles come in several different types. You may see them mounted on a weapon, or they could be used for personal use. Handheld NVGs are just monoculars you can hold up to your eyes.
You can use a monocular mounted on a gun, or you can use a helmet-mounted night vision device (NVD). Some weapons-mounted NVGs like the ArmaLite Vulcan have built-in crosshairs and can be used as a standalone unit.
You can also use an optic like the ArmaLite PVS-14 behind any EOTech-compatible NV system.
If you want the capability to use night-time sights without pointing a gun everywhere you look, consider buying a helmet mount for your rifle. This setup lets you use PVS-14 binoculars or BDNV51 dual tube night sights.
The BNVD provides you with tubes for each of your eyes, which enhance your perceived depth perception and increase your situational awareness with a wide field of view.
When using a thermal imaging camera, you’ll notice three different generations. As the numbers increase, so too does the quality of the image.
