Fully weapon-mountable and rated to withstand weapon shock up to 7.62mm, the Hyper is an ideal choice for hunters and outdoorsmen who want the versatility to mount a system on either a helmet or a weapon, as well as using it handheld.

  • 2000 FOM min. (Higher FOM available upon request)
  • Hardened weapon sight
  • Formed of rugged 7000 series aluminum
  • Available in both a PVS-14 and MUM variant
  • Higher tolerance to submersion, rain, and sand
  • Custom sleeve to protect image intensifier tube


Prepare for nighttime missions with the Hyper™ line of systems from Photonis Defense. Hyper™ systems are designed to stand up to the physical stresses of the battlefield with modular, ruggedized systems formed from high grade 7000 series aluminum.

Perfect for use as hardened weapon mounted sights on heavy caliber weapon platforms, the Hyper™ systems feature an internal configuration that utilizes a custom sleeve to protect the image intensifier tube from heavy weapon shock. The Hyper™ line offers both a PVS-14 (Hyper14™) and a MUM (Hyper MUM™) system variant that comply with MIL-PRF-49324(CR), MIL-PRF-49427(CR) and MIL-STD-810G specification standards for shock, drop, vibration, and water incursion.

Each Hyper™ system is compatible with Photonis Defense’s state-of-the-art image intensifier tubes. Both the Hyper 14™ and Hyper MUM™ night vision systems are reliable, long-lasting devices you can trust to provide superior night vision capabilities in even the darkest of conditions.

Basic Kit Includes: Hyper™ monocular, manual, soft carrying bag w/ shoulder strap, battery, demist shield, lens cleaning device, sacrificial filter, eyecup, tether cord, J-Arm Assembly (Helmet Mount Adapter).

White Phosphor

White Phosphore Example

The latest technological achievement providing the greatest clarity of image when operating in urban, desert or forested environments. For these applications, the night vision user should turn to a white phosphor tube. Studies have shown that night-time scenes appear remarkably more natural in black and white versus the usual green. White phosphor also provides much clearer information about the contrast, shapes and shadows within an environment.

Main Benefits
  • Greater image clarity
  • Scenes appear more natural
  • Clearer information regarding contrast, shapes, shadows
  • Perfect for urban, desert or forested environments


Green Phosphore Example

The industry standard for more than 40 years, green phosphor is the perfect choice for operators that complete missions in the jungle or deep dark areas of the world. The enhanced contrast and depth required for operating in these densely packed environments are ideally suited to the green phosphor coating. The higher gains and stronger contrasts of the green phosphor enable the clarity of image required for those operating without the advantage of ambient light sources to enhance the image.

Main Benefits
  • Enhanced contrast and depth
  • Higher gain and contrast provide better clarity
  • Perfect for jungle or deep dark environments

Ether™ Eyepiece

Ether™ Eyepiece Photo

The Ether™ eyepiece is available as a rugged upgrade component for the Vyper 14™ and Vyper 14C™. The Ether™ eyepiece offers a larger eyebox and reduced overall weight when compared to the eyepiece provided with a standard-issue night vision device. It also includes a diopter adjustment to reduce the need to carry a separate vision correction component. Ether™ eyepieces provide significant weight reduction – as much as 30% – when compared to the eyepiece provided with most conventional night vision devices. NVD users who frequently experience head and neck fatigue from heavy legacy devices will enjoy the reduced weight of any NVD equipped with the Ether™ eyepiece.
