T-7 Thermal Goggles / Binoculars Key Features
The T-7 thermal goggles take a clever approach to individual soldier imaging systems. The T-7 brings the best features of the ever popular AN/PVS-7 night vision goggle and adapted them into a full function thermal imager. Innovative engineering allows the user to realize the full potential of thermal imaging performance while maintaining a familiar form factor that easily mounts to most existing night vision helmet and head mounts. Head mounted to standard military or law enforcement helmets, the T-7 is a potent thermal goggle system capable of hands free thermal imaging during dismounted scenarios. Hand held, the T-7 is a rugged thermal imager. By simply adding one of several long range telephoto thermal imager optics, the T-7 converts into a state of the art thermal binocular system for intelligence gathering at a safe stand off distance. The T-7 thermal binocular / goggle system is loaded with features, easy to use, and affordable for most agencies. Read on to see what the T-7 can do for you.

T-7 Thermal Goggles / Thermal Binoculars
The T-7, with its battle proven rugged housing and comfortable dual eye design, is the clear choice for a variety of mission profiles that require thermal infrared imaging performance that is easy to use.
The future is here now, and it’s more affordable than you think. In today’s uncertain times of modern warfare, it is critical for the good guys to own the night. In the past, the US Military leaned heavily on what was then the pinnacle technology- the night vision goggle. Popular US Military NVG’s included the old AN/PVS-5 head mounted (really face mounted) goggle devices. The latest dual eye night vision goggle is the AN/PVS-7. This is an advance over the PVS 5 because it is much lighter in weight and gives the user the option of going handheld or head/helmet mounted. The PVS-7 night vision goggles have a battle proven, rock solid, NVG design. PVS-7 night vision technology (which requires some ambient light to operate) has served our forces well since the 1980’s. While the design is proven and the durability is without reproach, Starlight night vision goggles do have severe limitations.
THERMAL IMAGER VERSATILITY
These light amplifying goggles are very sensitive to ambient light sources. Severe image distortion will occur when common light sources like headlights, streetlights, and other equipment light enters the scene. This can be a nuisance at best, but becomes completely unacceptable when situational awareness is a matter of life and death. Thermal imagers active in common military usage since the early 1990’s. The first thermal imager systems were bulky, heavy, and extremely sensitive instruments which made them as much a burden as a benefit on the battlefield. There has long been a need for a lightweight, easy to use, and rugged thermal imagers. Clever engineering has brought forth the T-7 Thermal Goggle/Binocular imaging platform. Based on the tried and true AN/PVS-7 night vision goggle design, the T-7 expands a soldier’s
capabilities through high performance thermal imaging. Current issue night vision housings assure rugged reliability and soldier acceptance. The T-7 learning curve is minimal because the thermal functions are nearly the same as the night vision goggles. Additionally, the T-7 mounts to the current issue head and helmet mounts , so there is no need for new gear. The T-7 is just as comfortable to use head mounted as it is handheld, and with optional long range clip on optics, the T-7 can perform as a thermal goggle or a long range thermal binocular set. The choice is clear, the T-7 is the thermal imager that gives you high performance thermal and flexibility.

Dual Eye Thermal Imager
The T-7 thermal goggles have true dual eye technology that presents a more natural image than the single eye systems that are prevalent in today’s market. Single eye or monocular thermal imager systems force the user to close one eye, almost as if they are squinting at the sun. This is OK for quick use, but extended viewing inevitably causes eye strain and discomfort. The T7’s unique, dual eyepiece design makes it ideal for long term viewing. Whether your application is hands free, thermal goggle, or long range thermal binocular, the T7 will get the job done comfortably.
Standard Night Vision Mounts
With any piece of equipment, usability is the ultimate goal. This is why the T7 thermal imager was designed from the most proven US Military night vision goggle system– the AN/PVS-7. Not only does this give the user instant familiarity with T-7 operation, it also guarantees a commonality of parts when it comes to head or helmet mounting. The T-7 offers maximum interchangeability between users and will connect to almost any current issue night vision helmet mount. Maximize your investment by getting gear that fits what you already have!
2X Zoom and Image Polarity
Don’t let the rugged exterior of the T7 thermal goggle mislead you into thinking it’s a meat-head. The T-7 is packed with the most advanced digital signal processing algorithms to produce stunning thermal imagery. The T-7 digital zoom smooths edges and produces a usable image that makes distant objects larger. Advanced image polarity allows the user to select between Black Hot mode and White Hot mode. Generally speaking, white hot mode is ideal for spotting targets and black hot mode is most useful for situational awareness. Of course with the T-7, everything is a matter of user preference.
The T7 operates on standard CR123 lithium batteries. housed in a watertight, battle tested compartment. The battery case design makes changing batteries easy, even while wearing gloves or in the dark of night without compromising it’s watertight fit. CR123 batteries are readily available around the world at local electronics stores, photo stores, and even drugstore chains. Standard batteries mean that you don’t have to pay for overpriced proprietary batteries, or even worse, be stuck in the field without the right batteries.
T-7 thermal goggles come equipped with a standard NTSC video output function that makes it easy to connect to an external monitor (for extended viewing) or to a digital video recorder (for evidentiary or training purposes). All external connections are watertight and maintain the integrity of the T-7 thermal goggle/binocular system.
Long Range Lens Options
The T7 is a truly versatile performer that is equally at home as a short range head mounted thermal goggle system or as a long range thermal binocular set. Several long range telephoto germanium thermal lenses are available to fit your specific application needs. These precision engineered lenses are of an Afocal design so that they simply “clip on” to the existing lens to increase performance. This gives you in-the-field performance without the worry of removing the existing lens and compromising the integrity of the system. Simply clip on the long range optics and spot the target, before they spot you!
Waterproof Combat Ready Design
The T7 is designed with the same housing and functions as the military grade AN/PVS-7 night vision goggle for optimal performance during modern warfare. The highly sophisticated sensor system and advanced optical engineering of the T-7 are cradled in a rugged shock resistant housing proven to take the constant abuse of combat. The T-7 thermal goggle binocular is waterproof, shock resistant, and ready to roll.
The T-7 is equipped with carefully designed tactile buttons that are intuitive and easy to use. The onscreen display (OSD) clearly communicates the binocular’s mode. There is a button for every function of the T-7 which keeps you from getting lost in onscreen menus that can obscure your field of view. The T7 is designed to get it done and get it done fast, in any conditions!
