On November 3rd 2013 the E! Entertainment TV show “Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s” featured Night Optics products as part of their “Area 51″ episode. The premise of the episode surrounds members of the family on their travels to Area 51 in search of extraterrestrial life after one of them thought they had seen a UFO. The opening sequence shows members of the family unboxing a Night Optics USA labeled travel case filled with our high-end tactical night vision systems. They proceeded to play with the devices in darkened rooms of their home before later using them at a camp sight near Area 51. Though playful and silly at times, there was plenty of filming through the product and the overall subject matter points to a growing sub-culture of people who believe that we are not alone in the universe and take to the night sky’s with night vision in-hand to catch a glimpse of any potential visitors from places far far away.
We’d like to offer a special thanks to Ben Hansen of Night Vision Ops and SyFy’s Fact or Faked for connecting us with the producers of the show. We also want to thank the Producers of the show for all of the excellent placement during the program.
The WM-D14 quick release weapon mount is designed and manufactured in the USA using lightweight high-grade aluminum. The mount features a spring-loaded, maintenance free quick release mechanism; compatible with popular holographic weapon sights and ancillary adjustments for fine-tuning eye relief.
The WM-D14 can be used in left or right-handed configurations. The mount attaches to the front stationary ring on the PVS-14 night vision monocular and does not obstruct focus. Mounting in this way also enables the simultaneous use of the PVS-14 head/helmet mount swing arm adaptor, so the system can easily go from head to weapon and back quickly.
This kit includes the mount adaptor and hex wrench designed specifically to allow maximum leverage in tight spaces.

The popularity of the iPhone, with its high-resolution image and video capture capabilities means that these kits make it easy to transform a variety of night vision devices into high-resolution cameras. Both kits are compatible with the iPhone 4, 4s and 5.
Currently there are two kits available — a shooters kit (CAM-IPWPK) which is compatible with the Night Optics D-740, D-750 and D-760 night vision weapon sights and the standard kit (CAM-IP14K) which is compatible with the PVS-14, PVS-7, LRB-7 and LRM-14 high performance night vision systems.
These kits are perfect for outdoorsmen, sky watchers, hunters and law enforcement professionals and can be used for low-light, observation, surveillance, spotting or just to capture image and video footage to share with friends.
Night Optics USA has been doing extensive R&D on a line of new ultra high performance day/ night tactical kits. The idea is to create a versatile system that could be used in a variety of situations. If you’re a hunter, but don’t do enough night-time hunting to justify a dedicated night vision weapon scope, you might consider adapting a night vision monocular that you can also use for other things like nature watching, hiking & night photography. If you are a law enforcement officer whose department is on a tight budget, you need the best bang for your buck!
We searched high and low for day scopes that offered a great combination of quality, performance and affordability, to use with our night vision products that could appeal to a wide range of users. When using night vision with a daytime weapon sight, the most important hurdle to overcome is light transmission. The weapon sight must have great light transference so that there is minimal degradation in image quality. When we tested our products with the new line of Bushnell Elite Tactical riflescopes, we knew that our search was over! Bushnell delivered everything that we were looking for – Quality, performance & affordability.
Back in January 2012 at Show Show in Las Vegas, Night Optics USA debuted the largest selection of new products in our 19 year history. The Bushnell acquisition added much appreciated interest in both of our locations, while new full color catalogs lept from the shelves so quickly that we needed to have more flown in overnight to close the show.
If you’re wild hog in eastern Alabama, you should most definitely fear the night, especially any night that AJ Niette is out hunting. Niette prowls the agricultural fields near his home in Smiths Station, Alabama, night vision equipment at the ready, looking for the nocturnal pigs. Farmers here are hard hit by the destructive hogs, which root up their fields and destroy their crops. They routinely ask Niette if he can trim back the rampant hog populations.
