Troya, an Israeli player in the night vision and electro-optical devices market, has unveiled its newly-developed product: the NINOX PRO. It is an improved version of the company’s NINOX night vision goggles (NVG) for ground forces, which was designed according to the operational requirements of customers in the Special Forces community.
The NINOX PRO articulates so its user can use the device with one eye or both eyes as stereoscopic (3D) goggles. This allows for improved situational awareness and versatility during operation, and a minimal silhouette while in stow position.
The NINOX PRO is helmet or head mountable but can also be held like regular binoculars. It is equipped with an infrared flashlight, allowing the user to read maps or see in dark corridors and basements even when there is no ambient light available. According to company officials, operatives and combat drivers who frequently use these types of devices have provided useful feedback during development of this very high-tech, low-signature device that is crucial for their everyday tactical modus operandi and tempo. The NINOX PRO is already in use by select units internationally, and the company recently supplied it to a significant governmental customer in South America.
Tomer Snir, Troya's CMO, said “Our new NVG is an improvement of the long-time favorite NINOX and was designed to enable articulation to better fit various combat scenarios, such as weapon handling, nighttime driving, parachuting and all kinds of field work in hazardous environments. The NINOX PRO’s development took us a lot of time and efforts, since we really wanted to give our all to the Spec Ops community, working day and, especially, night so we will all be able to sleep peacefully during the time they normally operate. We have especially designated it for these users, as we know they have very high requirements and operational demands, and their assistance backstage really put in the extra cherry on top with this exceptional design.”
