Nocorium Vinyl Night Vision Camouflage Wraps Available Now from TNVC!

January 07, 2021 Redlands, CA

Additional colorways and device patterns coming soon, to include the AN/PVS-31A USSOCOM BNVD, L3Harris BNVD1531, and TNV/DTNVS!

tnvc.com/shop/nocorium-night-vision-vinyl-wraps

Nocorium™ is a non-permanent, automotive grade adhesive-backed vinyl wrap carefully designed and precision cut to customize the appearance of your Night Vision Device. Nocorium NVG Wraps™ are essentially a second skin for Night Vision Goggles that provides an additional layer of protection from minor scuffs and scratches, while also allowing the device to better blend-in to your surroundings.

Nocorium™ is easy to peel off the backing. It is easy to apply. And when you want to change it up, it is easy to remove when the time comes. Residual adhesive residue on the housing will be minimal (if present at all) even after years of being applied. The revolutionary dual system adhesive backing allows the material to be installed while providing some slideability and repositionability of the pieces. This ensures every piece properly conforms to complex surfaces with an optimal fit. Once the desired position and shaping has been achieved, pressing the wrap material firmly into the device’s surface breaks open microscopic acrylic adhesive particles that form the real adhesive bond to the surface and will continue to strengthen over the following 24 hours. When applied correctly, the end result is a clean and bubble free surface appearance that remains in place until the user chooses to remove it.

Most Night Vision Devices are typically all black in external appearance, and while they may not stand out much when observed in visible light, that black exterior has a high contrast visual signature when seen under infrared. The NVG Wraps™ are non-reflective as they have a matte finish overlaminate. When viewed under both passive and active IR light, the highly effective Nocorium™ material blends-in about the same as regular multicam fabric. In fact, the material has a much lower visual signature under IR when compared to the black polymer and black anodized components of the device itself. Nocorium™ not only looks good, it also has beneficial function as IR camouflage.

Areas of operations can change: You might be in an urban environment one day but then a woodland or arid or snowy environment in the near future. The need to blend in continues. A paint job, be it Cerakote or rattle can paint can be quite an aesthetic commitment and labor-intensive to remove. In comparison, Nocorium NVG Wraps™ allow you to change the surface appearance of your Night Vision Device as often as you like or even revert back to its all black original appearance with no clean up needed. Nocorium NVG Wraps™ are available in a wide range of colors. Multicam options are exclusively licensed from Crye Precision®. Solid Color options are carefully calibrated to match common color tones used for accessories in those color families.

Nocorium NVG Wraps™ are an excellent solution to changing the appearance of your Night Vision Device and the diverse range of colors and camouflage patterns available gives you lots of options.

DeltaPoint Micro from Leupold Optics

Monday, January 4th, 2021

Leupold has officially released the DeltaPoint Micro, their new minimalistic red dot sight for pistols.

For shooters who need a red dot sight for their personal carry pistol, the DeltaPoint Micro is a rugged reflex sight that delivers rapid target acquisition, increased accuracy, and legendary Leupold performance in a sleek, low-profile design.

It’s a direct replacement for the factory rear sight. While I’m not overly enthused by the form factor, I do appreciate the technology. Leupold has placed a red dot about as close to the bore axis as possible. I imagine this means you’ll have to get used to it, if you decide to replace a more traditional RDS. But if this is your first use of an RDS, transitioning from traditional sights should be a bit easier as the dot is essentially where you normally find your rear sight. It’s also in direct alignment with the front sight.

Offering 8 power settings, the 3MOA dot is fully enclosed and is powered by a CR 1632 battery. The sight incorporates Motion Sensing Technology for power management and is waterproof rated at IPX7.

Although readily accessible for battery swaps, that battery case looks like it will take some getting used to. Perhaps an updated version will come out with a conformal, internal battery making the whole package a bit more sleek.

Initially, the DeltaPoint Micro is offered to fit either any non-MOS Glock or Smith & Wesson M&P models.

It should be right around $400 street price.

Powerful Example: IVAS Program Uses Middle Tier and Other Transaction Authorities

Sunday, January 3rd, 2021

The Integrated Visual Augmentation System (IVAS) program office employed critical thinking and innovative practices in the strategy, planning and execution of IVAS–an acquisition program designed to give our Soldiers, Marines and Special Operators a decisive advantage in close-combat capability. The program team leveraged the Adaptive Acquisition Framework, Middle Tier of Acquisition Pathway/Rapid Prototyping Path as highlighted in DoDI 5000.80, as well as Other Transaction Authorities to contract with Microsoft and other traditional and non-traditional vendors. Additionally, they involved Soldiers in the design and test process (“Soldier-Centered Design”), collaborated with key stakeholders and industry as one team (the “right team”), and effectively identified, managed and drove down risk as development and testing progressed.

Click here to watch the video.

IVAS is a low-profile, ruggedized Heads-Up Display (HUD) with a body borne computer pack, Conformal Wearable Battery (CWB), squad radio, and integrated thermal and low light sensors that provides the Close Combat Force a single platform to fight, rehearse, and train. The IVAS suite of capabilities leverages tactical mixed reality to enable planning, networked information sharing via Tactical Cloud Package (TCP) and Cloud Services, and an augmented reality Synthetic Training Environment (STE) and Squad immersive Virtual Trainer (SiVT) that enables the Warfighter to fight ‘25 bloodless battles’ before engaging the enemy. IVAS integrates next generation situational awareness tools and high-resolution simulations to deliver a single platform that improves Soldier sensing, decision making, target acquisition, and target engagement. These capabilities will provide the increased lethality, mobility, and situational awareness necessary to achieve overmatch against our current and future adversaries.

Team IVAS is on target to begin production in March 2021, with first unit equipped in September 2021, accelerating the development process by more than four years compared to traditional acquisition processes.
