AN/AVS 6 Aviator's Night Vision Systems

The Exelis ANVIS enables rotary-wing aviators to conduct and complete night operations during the darkest nights of the year. In use by rotary-wing units around the world, ANVIS offers high reliability and performance. The lightweight binocular can be mounted to a variety of aviator helmets, including the SPH-4B, HGU-56P, and Alpha.

The ANVIS unit is powered by standard AA batteries. As an optional accessory, a clip-on power source is available, enabling hand-held operation of the binocular (no helmet required). This feature significantly aids the aviator during situations involving escape and evasion.


  • Generation 3 gated Pinnacle® tubes provide the highest performance available under all light levels encountered during night flying operations.
  • Improved objective lens focus maximizes image clarity at all times.
  • Optional clip-on power source allows ANVIS use without helmet
  • Independent eye-span adjustment and 25-mm eye relief eyepiece accommodate eyeglasses and various sight-related physical requirements.
  • New low-profile battery back improves head mobility for aviator while in cockpit.
  • "Minus-blue" objective lens filter screens glare from cockpit instrument lighting.

Other features include flip-up stowage; durable, "soft-sided" carrying case; and rugged, environmentally protective shipping and storage case (optional).​​
