The ATN NVM14 and the Armasight Sirius – a technical comparison

What nighttime operators everywhere want is a top notch night vision device that can deliver clear, crisp images,  with as little distortion as possible, and excellent resolution.  Add to that multi-functional features, that allow you to turn the device into a hand-held spotting scope, helmet mounted, head mounted, or weapon mounted scope, and it doesn’t get better than that.


The ATN – NVM14 NIGHT VISION MULTI PURPOSE SYSTEM is one of the most high-performing gears on the market, satisfying both the requirements for functionality and long-lasting quality. Utilizing the principle of intensification of the residual light which is reflected from the surrounding objects, the ATN NVM14  features 27mm lenses  and 1x magnification, allowing for more light to be captured. This makes it easy for the user to better observe the subject and acquire enhanced target acquisition capabilities.

Even under unsteady brightness conditions, the built-in automatic brightness adjustment system always keeps the IIT brightness level constant.


The NVM14 is ideal for driving, night surveillance, weapon firing, map reading, vehicle maintenance, and providing first aid under the cover of darkness. That is to say that this gear  is the total night vision package for the modern nighttime military operator, police surveillance agent, or for anybody concerned with securing his family and property.


Compatible with most IR laser aiming/illuminating devices, this model defines multi-mission versatility. For the price, there’s no beating it when it comes to surveillance.

On the other hand, if you need a long range powerful tool, then place your bet on the Armasight Sirius Multi-Purpose Night Vision Monocular Gen3. It is enhanced with optional 3, 5 or 8X lenses, which can turn it into a long range night viewing device in seconds. Featuring Generation 3 technology, with gallium arsenide (GaAs) photocathode and ion barrier coating to the microchannel plate,  the gear functions at greater detection distances and delivers improve overall performance.


The Sirius is a unit that is equally designed for the exigent hunter, as well as for the professional security officer or demanding law enforcement agent. Mission configurable, the Armasight Sirius can be hand-held, head/helmet mounted; it can be mounted onto a rifle with a variety of different mounts, or it can be mounted in front of a camcorder or camera for night photography.


Armasight Sirius is based on the “single tube/single eyepiece” concept where independent use of each eye maximizes the ability of the user to operate under a wide range of low light conditions while reducing the risk of temporary night blindness typically associated with night vision goggles. It is also equipped with a state of the art Bright Light Cut-Off System,  which controls the existing illumination level through the photo receiver.


The scope is designed for all weather conditions, so you can hunt in the rain or snow without it affecting the device. You can count on it to work in temperatures from -51 to + 49 degrees Celsius. Now, if that doesn’t pack a punch, no other thing does.

Owners of multi-purpose system are known to be unbeatable detectors of anything living and breathing in the forest. What’s keeping you from joining the big league?
