Warrior East 18 – Norotos Improved Situationally Adjustable Mount

Thursday, July 12th, 2018

Norotos unveiled their new Improved Situationally Adjustable Mount (I-SAM). It can be used in stand alone mode or as an adapter to other mounts.


Originally developed for an international client’s specific Night Vision Device, Norotos modified the I-SAM to accept other, more common systems. For instance, they’ve developed a completely new J Arm which is more compact, lighter, and stronger.


The secret is the clamp adapter which provides interface between device and Mount.

Additionally, they offer a clamp adapter interface for existing PVS-7s. This is particularly effective for 7s which are missing the mounting horn. Many LE organizations still have these devices, so this may be a good fit.


The I-SAM allows a PVS-14 to instantly be swapped from left eye to right eye and even stowed out of the way. Tension is operator adjustable and infinitely adjustable, with no presets, allowing for optimal customization.
