SCUBAPRO Sunday – Americans Navy

Sunday, July 5th, 2020

In the early 1770s, a Connecticut inventor David Bushnell started designing what would be the first submersible. It was a small egg-shaped and less than eight feet tall. Her hull was constructed from two oak shells held together by steel bands and waterproof with a thick layer of tar. It had ventilation tubes, a compass, and a device for determining depth. Attached to the exterior was a primitive bomb. The pilot entered the vessel through a hatch at the top. There were a couple of small glass windows that provided very light and visibility. It was operated by a hand crank that propelled it and a tiller that steered it. The operator also controlled the hand pump that regulated the ballast that submerged and surfaced the craft. Once submerged and the ventilation tubes were closed, there was about 30 minutes worth. It was called “Turtle” because of the two “shells” put together to make it. It is also referred to as Americas Turtle.

In the spring of 1776, about a year into the Revolutionary War, Bushnell wrote to General George Washington asking if the Turtle could be used in defense of New York City’s harbor. Washington accepted the offer. Around midnight on 6 September, the Turtle, piloted by Army sergeant Ezra Lee. That’s right, the first submarine action by the U.S. Navy was led by an Army guy.

It took Lee two hours to get to his target; a British ship named the HMS Eagle. Once he positioned himself beneath the vessel, he was supposed to drill into her hull using a bit attached to Turtle’s top hatch. Once the hole was deep enough, he would anchor his explosive device to the ship’s hull. He had about 30 minutes to get away from the Eagle before the charge would detonate. That was the plan, but Lee’s bit got stuck in a metal part of the hull. On his second attempt, the Turtle bobbed to the surface and he was spotted. As he headed for shore, Lee released his “torpedo,” which exploded harmlessly in the middle of the East River.

Even though Lee wasn’t successful in sinking or doing damage to the HMS Eagle (other than a small drill hole) it was the U.S. first attempt at underwater warfare, and it was one of the first in a very young countries Navy. Secondarily the failed attack ultimately forced the British to move their fleet of 200 ships to where they thought was a safer location. The threat of underwater attack kept the British fleet on their toes throughout the war and made them use more resources and manpower to protect their ships then they normally would have. Much like using Special Forces behind the enemy lines in modern warfare. So, it turns out it wasn’t as big of a failure as first thought. The basic principles used by America’s Turtle still remain valid in submarine warfare today. In recognition of Bushnell’s achievement, the U.S. Navy named two submarine tenders in his honor, one during World War I and one during World War II. Inevitably, the ships were nicknamed “Turtle.”

Declare Your Independence From Darkness with Night Goggles, Inc. and TNVC—New Website and Night Goggles XLS Gen. 3 White Phosphor Night Vision Systems at the Best Prices You’ve Ever Seen!

Friday, July 3rd, 2020

July 3rd, 2020, Redlands, California

Night Goggles, Inc. and TNVC are proud to celebrate Our Independence Day and the Heroes and Patriots who have made these United States the place it is today. Though this year has brought many unprecedented trials, unexpected events, and tests for this, Our Great Experiment in Freedom, Equality, and Self-Determination for all People, We stand firm in our resolve to this serve this great Nation and her People.

This 4th of July, we salute ALL patriots, and as such we are extremely proud to announce the addition of a brand new product line from Night Goggles, Inc. (NGI), the Night Goggles XLS Night Vision Systems, Gen. 3 White Phosphor Thin-Filmed NVGs in PVS-14, RNVG, and DTNVG varieties at some of the lowest prices ever seen for these kinds of capabilities – along with a brand new, redesigned website with a new look and feel and greatly improved user experience!

Night Goggles, Inc. is a sister company to TNVC, focused not only on armed professionals, but also hunters and outdoors enthusiasts of all types—at NGI and TNVC, we believe that all Americans should have access to the greatest night vision technologies available. To that end, we are introducing the NGI XLS line as an low cost (but not low quality!) option to allow even more people access to top-of-the-line, modern, Gen. 3 White Phosphor Night Vision Goggles. Declare Your Independence from Darkness with the NGI XLS Systems, the best value Gen. 3 WP system on the market at special introductory prices from July 3rd through July 15th!

• Night Goggles NGI/PVS-14-XLS – $2,350 Introductory Pricing (MSRP $2,455)

• Night Goggles NGI/RNVG-XLS – $5,599 Introductory Pricing (MSRP $5,799)

• Night Goggles NGI/DTNVG-XLS – $6,499 Introductory Pricing (MSRP $6,899)

These new Night Goggles, Inc. XLS Systems are built in-house by Night Goggles, Inc. at our Redlands, California facility using Elbit Systems of America—Night Vision (ESA-NV) F9415XLSH and F9400XLSH (no chopped pigtails here!) Generation 3, Auto-gated, Thin-Filmed White Phosphor image intensifier tubes with factory data records. All binocular systems are matched and collimated and come with TNVC and NGI’s industry leading Lifetime Limited Warranty, covering the housing and system for the lifetime of the unit, and image intensifier tubes for 10 years!

ESA-NV, based in Roanoke, Virginia, formerly the Night Vision division of Harris Corporation prior to their merger with L3 Technologies and previously known as ITT/Exelis is one of the premier manufacturers of Generation 3 image intensifiers, and has long been known as an industry leader in visual augmentation systems, including the AN/PSQ-20 ENVG Night Vision/Thermal Fusion system, and was recently awarded the contract for the United States Marine Corps’ Squad BNVG program.

While the image intensifier tubes being used in the NGI XLS systems do not necessarily meet the MIL-SPEC requirements image intensifier tubes and therefore considered “Commercial Spec” or “COM-SPEC” tubes, they are nevertheless still excellent performers. The very lowest performance figures approximate U.S. OMNI V performance, often considered to be the first of the modern “high performance” night vision, while the highest spec’ed units rival the best modern “super-tubes.”

However, even for these COM-SPEC units we WILL NOT compromise by purchasing lower cost, non-standard, non-MIL-SPEC optics and housing components from vendors looking to make a quick buck on products that “look the part,” but are unable to perform the same as MIL-SPEC components–the price savings is entirely in the image intensifiers.

While TNVC’s MIL-SPEC systems still represent the absolute best performance money can buy, these new Night Goggles systems are an excellent option for those who are looking for a lower-cost Gen. 3 White Phosphor NVG, and are sure to be popular with hunters, enthusiasts, and tactical shooters alike! NGI sources these tubes directly from ESA-NV, and because these XLSH tubes do not fully meet MIL-SPECs, we are able to pass on our savings to YOU, our customers by offering these Night Goggles XLS systems at some of the lowest prices ever for Gen. 3 WP systems. Non-MIL-SPEC tubes should mean non-MIL-SPEC prices!

New Night Fighter 101 Class Added to TNVC 2020 Training Calendar at the Brand New Vortex Edge Training Center in Wisconsin (22-23 August 2020)

Wednesday, July 1st, 2020

TNVC is excited to announce that a new Night Fighter 101 class has been added to the 2020 Night Fighter Training Calendar for 22-23 August 2020, being held in collaboration with Vortex Optics and is NOW AVAILABLE FOR OPEN ENROLLMENT!

For the first time ever, TNVC will be offering the standard Night Fighter 101 course at an indoor range facility, beginning during normal business hours at the new Vortex Edge Training Center, located approximately 30 minutes West of Madison, Wisconsin, a world class indoor training facility with over 50,000 sq. ft. of training space, and featuring 100, 50, and 25 yard live-fire ranges designed and built by Action Target as well as a force-on-force (non-live fire) shoot house for UTM/Simunition/FoF marking rounds.

As with any of our other Night Fighter 101 courses, Class 20-007 is not solely a square range course, making it difficult to conduct at most indoor range facilities. Both the 50 and 25 yard ranges at the Vortex Edge Training Center are configured to allow shooters to move anywhere within the room and conduct live-fire training with sophisticated automated targetry that can be tailored for a variety of different courses of fire and situational training exercises. All of the live-fire ranges are also fully climate controlled and sheltered, but offer variable lighting allowing lighting temperature and intensity to be adjusted to mimic almost any natural lighting conditions–including dawn and dusk, giving students an opportunity to train and practice in much more varied conditions than would be possible at an outdoor range facility.

Moreover, the ability to control the lighting conditions means that students no longer have to wait until until late-afternoon to begin training. Let’s be honest–not all students work night shifts, and it can sometimes be difficult to adjust and re-adjust schedules to the reverse-cycle usually required for Night Fighter classes that are reliant on external conditions.

Open-enrollment seats for TNVC’s First Ever Night Fighter 101 at the Vortex Edge Training Facility are extremely limited, so sign-up now!

We look forward to more collaboration with Vortex Optics and Vortex Edge in the future!
