The AN/PSQ-20 Enhanced Night Vision Goggle (ENVG) provides dismounted Brigade Combat Team warfighters the capability to observe and maneuver in all weather conditions, through obscurants, during limited visibility and under all lighting conditions while enabling rapid detection and engagement with rifle-mounted aiming lasers. The ENVG uses both image intensification and infrared (thermal) sensors.
BENEFIT TO THE WARFIGHTER
The ENVG allows the individual Soldier to see, understand and act first during limited visibility conditions. It combines the visual detail in low light conditions that is provided by image intensification with the thermal sensor’s ability to see through fog, dust and smoke. This thermal capability makes the ENVG useful during the day as well as at night, unlike earlier night vision devices.
