Trijicon / IR Defense – IR Patrol XR

Thursday, September 15th, 2016

This is video of the IR Patrol XR from IR Defense, a Long-Range Thermal Spotter. Vic DiCosola, head of TNVC related to me that next to a cooled array system, this new XR is the best thermal spotter they’ve used to date. Vic said, “With its front focus lens and the BAE 12um core, the contrast and resolution is stunning!”

TNVC and their sister company NightGoggles (NGI) made this Hi Def hunt video showing just how well the system performs.

TNVC Announces Zero G Deluxe Retrofit Combat Liner for Helmets by 4D Tactical

Thursday, July 21st, 2016

The Zero G Deluxe Retrofit Combat Liner by 4D Tactical, is available exclusively at TNVC. It offers the most technologically advanced and comfortable suspension system available for any combat helmet. Originally developed for USSOCOM, the Zero G pads meet and exceed specification for ACH Blunt Impact and Ballistic Protection – even exceeding current standard issue, OEM, and aftermarket suspension system offerings (according to independent and DoD lab testing (USMC SMART-TE ACH Test). What’s more; the Zero G Deluxe Retrofit Combat Liner is the most comfortable set of pads available. Let’s repeat that: THE MOST COMFORTABLE SET OF PADS AVAILABLE.

The Zero G Deluxe Retrofit Combat Liner is a rate and temperature sensitive material that conforms to the wearer’s unique head shape. The materials provide unparalleled comfort, fit, and stability. All pads are covered in a heat and moisture wicking NanoTech anti-microbial fabric. It is designed to draw perspiration away from the head and will actually cool the wearer through this evaporative process. The Zero G Deluxe Retrofit Combat Liner is Berry Amendment (10 U.S.C 2533a) Compliant.

The Zero G Deluxe Retrofit Combat Liner was spec’d with input from TNVC to be the ultimate in warfighter comfort and protection. Based on 4D Tactical’s excellent Zero G Standard Kits, the Deluxe Retrofit Combat Liner contains more pads for more complete coverage. All pads are independent of each other for complete customization and compatibility with other head-borne mission critical gear. Once installed, the pads conform to each other, creating the feeling of a single, soft insert, eliminating hot spots of pad contact during extended wear.

This is the best investment you can make in your helmet!

Financing Now Available From TNVC

Sunday, May 29th, 2016

How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.

TNVC is excited to announce our partnership with the First National Bank of North Arkansas to finally make the highest grade night vision and thermal gear more attainable than ever to U.S. citizens! Introducing: The TNVC Night Vision Financing Program. Your dream of owning the best night vision and thermal optics is about to become a reality.

TNVC caters to the professional market, only offering high end night vision gear that we would bet our own lives on, from the industry’s top manufacturers. And, while the majority of this equipment is available to civilians, it has always come at a price that has forced many prospective buyers to settle for foreign-made or lesser-quality systems. But not anymore. We have had many requests for layaway programs over the years. Customers on a budget did not want to settle for cheaper equipment, but could not always justify the total cost all at once. Our quick and easy financing program will put the same high-end night vision and thermal products used to defend our nation within reach. Low monthly payments and a low, fixed interest rate mean you will be enjoying your new high end gear right away!

Here’s how it works: All night vision and thermal gear available from TNVC is eligible for financing and all U.S. Citizens are pre-approved. Obviously, all ITAR laws and regulations apply. Simply choose the “Finance” option at checkout on the TNVC site and you will be directed to a secure page on the First National Bank of North Arkansas website to fill out your application. The credit review is done within 2 business days. Customers meeting the bank’s minimum credit requirements will be approved for immediate product delivery and monthly payments will proceed according to the loan term. Customers not meeting the minimum credit requirement will have their product placed on layaway until the loan is paid.

Night vision is an investment. You do not need to settle for low end gear. By popular demand, the new TNVC Finance Program will truly make darkness your ally.

TNVC Issues Press Release On Availabilty Of Ops-Core BASE Jump Helmets

Friday, May 20th, 2016

TNVC shared this important Press Release regarding an announcement by Ops-Core to their dealers regarding the cessation of production of the BASE Jump Helmet. We have spoken with representatives at Ops-Core for additional details and they have told us they will issue a statement regarding the future of the BASE Jump Helmet during next week’s SOFIC.

TNVC has just been informed from Ops-Core, a division of Gentex, has ceased production of the popular FAST Base Jump Polymer Bump Helmet. This came as quite a shock to us as the move was extremely sudden. No more FAST Base Jump Helmets will be produced. What’s more, Ops-Core will not be fulfilling any backorders. TNVC has learned that Ops-Core is currently designing a replacement helmet, tentatively called the FAST Bump Helmet 2.0. They did not confirm any details on new features or upgrades; only stating that it is slated to begin production in August 2016 (which means a fourth quarter delivery at the earliest). We can certainly speculate about the new helmet, but there is no confirmation on new features at this time.

While the news of a new Ops-Core helmet is exciting, the move of immediately discontinuing production of the current model leaves currently back-ordered customers in a bind. In the interim, Ops-Core has offered the following options:

1. A one for one substitution of all currently TNVC backordered FAST Base Jump Helmets with a FAST Carbon Helmet. This is a phenomenal deal seeing as the FAST Carbon helmet is more than twice as expensive as the polymer version. These substitutions are expected to take 60-90 additional days.
2. A one for one substitution of all currently backordered FAST Base Jump Helmets with the new FAST Bump Helmet 2.0 when it is available.

Yes, this means longer lead times for current backorders. But, when all is said and done, customers will have a better helmet at the same price they paid for a FAST Base Jump Helmet. It’s hard to argue with that math. Please note: Ops-Core is only offering this substitution deal to currently backordered customers. TNVC has already removed the FAST Base Jump Helmet from our website because we are sold out.

TNVC Announces Two New Hires For NightGoggles, Inc.

Monday, April 11th, 2016

Tom Austin and Sam Houston bring an enormous amount of night vision, tactical and hunting experience that will continue to grow TNVC and our newest sister commercial entity, NightGoggles into a premier NV/Hunting company which our valued customers have come to expect. We are all extremely excited with the growth of our two companies and we will continue to provide the best customer service and education in our respected fields of work.

Tom Austin
Programs Director

Tom Austin’s passion for the outdoors runs deep. His father, an avid outdoorsman, instilled the love of hunting, fishing, camping and sport shooting in Tom at an early age. His childhood was filled with high adventure. Barely a day passed by when Tom didn’t have a fishing rod or firearm in his hands enjoying Gods creations with friends and family.

In his early twenties, Tom entered the Utah State Peace Officers and Training program, graduating with honors, producing a perfect score at every pistol qualification earning him the award of Top Shot at the academy.

Upon graduating, Tom was quickly recruited as a Police Officer where he served the citizens proudly as he climbed the chain of command from patrol to investigations. There he was assigned to operate as an Under-Cover Agent of an elite unit of the department known as the Narcotics Strikeforce. The unit trained for and performed high-risk operations and no-knock warrants with the SWAT Team, FBI, ATF, ICE, and DEA. During his tenure as a Police Officer, he received several Mayor’s Awards, a Distinguished Unit award for outstanding teamwork in hostile situations, two Life Saving awards, and the rank of Expert Marksman. He’s certified in several NRA disciplines and enjoys sharing his knowledge and experiences about firearms and his love for the second amendment.

After nearly a decade, Tom resigned from the police force to pursue his dream as a Professional Hunter. His goal was to not only do things differently, but to up-the-ante by guiding hunters that wanted the ultimate challenge coupled with the ultimate thrill. Nothing is more exciting or daunting than hunting another hunter. As a result, Tom opened his “predators only” guide service aptly called Predator Strikeforce. He literally hunts predators from Canada to Mexico and every hilltop and valley floor in between. As an added challenge, Tom films the hunt for his clients using broadcast quality equipment giving the hunter an opportunity to relive the hunt though the footage he captures. His footage has been seen on The Outdoor Channel, Sportsman’s Channel, Weather Channel, and Wild TV.

When Tom isn’t traveling the country for Predator Strikeforce, he is writing editorials for Predator Xtreme magazine, Outdoor Life, AR Guns & Hunting, Trapper & Predator Caller, Petersen’s Hunting and Hunting Illustrated just to name a few. He’s been awarded “writer of the year” and “column of the year” for three consecutive years. He serves as Pro Staff and Field Staff for several cutting edge companies in the outdoor industry where he conducts predator hunting seminars and serves as a guest lecturer for hunting events around the globe.

For Tom, hunting, firearms and the outdoors aren’t just an obsession, but a way of life.
