The UNS is a unique night vision system that is small enough to mount in front of any boresighted daytime scope. Scope magnification can range from one to twelve power. The UNS does not require any boresighting and once mounted the daysight provides the aiming point. The UNS maintains boresight despite normal misalignments due to mount position errors and does not alter the sighting centerline (parallax is unchanged from dayscope). The UNS also contains no beam splitter or folded optics to go out of alignment.
The UNS is lightweight, rugged and adaptable to almost any weapon which will accept a MIL-STD-1913 (Picatinny) rail and has shown the ability to withstand the recoil of 5.56 (223) & 7.62 (308) rifles. It has a very fast f/1.12 catadioptic lens and a 40mm output window (eyepiece). The UNS also incorporates gain control, which allows the user to adjust the tube brightness (gain) lower to compensate for overly bright or to increase the gain under extreme dark conditions.
The UNS is manufactured with the highest quality Gen III Pinnacle, American Made Image intensifiers and is only available for U.S. Government Sales.
