Introducing the PD-PRO Series

City Scape Panoramic Goggle

The PD-PRO series redefines the night vision goggle standard. By utilizing innovative 16mm and Hybrid-18mm image intensifier tubes each PD-PRO device is the smallest and lightest system available to the market. Each system has been uniquely designed to provide night vision operations with a significant advantage when conducting operations by using our state-of-the-art 4G image intensifier tubes

PD-PRO-Q Panoramic Goggle

PD-PRO-Q Panoramic NVG Studio SM

Specially designed to give Special Forces and SWAT Teams a notable advantage when conducting operations, the PD-PRO-Q Panoramic night vision goggle is an innovative approach to a better night vision experience.


Heavy systems may be a primary factor in head, neck and shoulder strain and in many cases can impact a user’s ability to maneuver within an operating environment. The PD-PRO-Q addresses this issue by using an innovative hybrid-18mm 4G image intensifier tube which allows for the system to be lighter and smaller than its 18mm cousin. Photonis Defense’s PD-PRO-Q system features a powerful 4G image intensifier tube at its core, equipping each PD-PRO-Q device with our evolutionary 4G technology that detects 30% more of the visible light spectrum from 350nm to 1,100nm. The PD-PRO-Q is only available within the US from Photonis Defense or our network of authorized distributors.

PD-PRO-16B Binocular Goggle

PD-PRO-16B Binocular NVG SWAT Shot Sm

The PD-PRO-16B system is uniquely designed to provide operators with a significant night vision advantage when conducting operations.


At the core of the system is a high-performance 16mm 4G image intensifier tube that is equipped with our evolutionary 4G technology. The use of a 4G 16mm image intensifier tube within the PD-PRO-16B allows the system to not only be smaller and lighter than it’s 18mm cousins but also gives it a unique advantage in performance. The ultralight nature of the PD-PRO-16B reduces swing weight and size allowing operators using a night vision device to move quicker and see faster. The PD-PRO-16B is ideal for use in military operations, urban conflict, and environmental/border protection operations due to its unique size and capabilities. All PD-PRO systems, including the PD-PRO-16B, are only available in the US from Photonis Defense and our network of authorized distributors.

PD-PRO-16M Monocular Goggle

PD-PRO-16M Monocular NVG Hunter Shot SM

Pocket sized and powerful, the PD-PRO-16M night vision monocular was created for everyday use.


The PD-PRO-16M night vision monocular sets a new standard for system size by using an innovative 16mm 4G image intensifier tube. The use of a 16mm tube allows the system to be smaller and lighter than it’s 18mm cousins while still providing exceptional clarity, crispness, and contrast in low-light environments. 4G image intensifier tubes utilize our proprietary 4G technology to provide the smallest and most transparent halo around the brightest objects, advanced ultra-fast auto-gating that responds to lighting changes 3x quicker than the blink of an eye, and the ability to use laser designators or illuminators that are not visible to standard industry night vision goggles. The PD-PRO-16M is the perfect choice for night vision users and enthusiasts who want a lightweight, small form factor , and powerful night vision device. Each PD-PRO device is only available within the US from Photonis Defense or one of our authorized distributors.

PD-PRO Features:


For years military professionals, hunters, law enforcement officers and a variety of other night vision users and enthusiasts have been craving lighter and smaller night vision goggles. Years of use have shown that in many cases heavy systems may be the contributing factor to head, neck and shoulder injuries among night vision users. With this knowledge, we worked alongside current and former military personnel, to design and produce night vision goggles that are significantly smaller and lighter than current systems on the market. We were able to achieve this goal by utilizing our very own evolutionary 4G 16mm image intensifier tubes and 4G Hybrid-18mm tubes to create the PD-PRO Series. The PD-PRO series is truly re-defining the night vision standard with smaller and lighter systems that still maintain exceptionally high performance.


Each PD-PRO night vision goggle offers users the unique ability to see 30% more of the visible light spectrum, from below 400nm to above 1,000nm. We’ve labeled this feature Hypersense™ for its ability to give operators superior situational awareness in their surroundings and the option to utilize laser designators and illuminators that are not visible to night vision goggles using standard industry image intensifiers. Night vision professionals using a PD-PRO system equipped with Hypersense™ get a superior advantage out in the field with the ability to see more of their surroundings. Before the release of the PD-PRO series this distinctive capability had never been seen on any other leading night vision systems.

Spec Optics

The PD-PRO Series was specifically designed to maximize the capabilities and performance of each individual component. For low-light-level operations night vision professionals require a high level of contrast, definition and resolution in order to move throughout their environment, this is where Spec Optics™ comes in. Spec Optics™ refers to the precision German manufactured optics that have been coated and specifically formulated to enhance the performance of a Photonis 4G image intensifier tube.  Each PD-PRO system is equipped with our innovative Spec Optics™ to ensure that you can get the best possible performance out of your image intensifier tube and harness the true power of Hypersense™.

4G Technology

Only a PD-PRO night vision device equipped with an evolutionary 4G image intensifier tube can deliver the highest performance in all field and lighting conditions. Each 4G tube is held up to your 4G Technology standard that is defined by the very minimum specifications needed by modern night vision users. Only a 4G tube can provide the smallest and most transparent halo, crystal-clear resolution, and a high definition of contrast to provide accurate situational awareness for the operator. Additionally, Photonis 4G image intensifier tubes are equipped with the fastest Auto-Gating in the industry that reacts over 3x faster than the blink of an eye to sudden lighting transitions, such as weapon flashes, flash-bangs, or other dynamic lighting conditions.

Operator Designed & Proven

PD-PRO-16B Binocular NVG Cliff Jump

Night vision operations take place all over the world, in extreme temperatures and unforgiving conditions. Our PD-PRO Series systems are designed in conjunction with combat-hardened operators who wanted smaller and lighter systems without the added weight of multiple add-on devices. The PD-PRO series is not only smaller and lighter but it also features a native out-of-band (above 1,000nm) capability all within a housing that can stand up to operations in some of the toughest environments worldwide.

We're All IN

In today’s world of uncertainty and conflict, the need for the highest level of situational awareness and capability are essential to the successful completion of any mission assignment. At Photonis Defense many of our employees are former Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Airmen, Police and First Responders. We understand first-hand how important it is to have systems that do the job and do the job well. We are “ALL IN” to provide support to those needs and have a personal attachment to ensuring the highest quality, the best performance and the greatest experience for an operator’s night vision needs.
