BREAKAWAY NIGHT VISION GOGGLE MOUNT
The Wilcox G11 Mount is the new U.S. Army Approved contract mount for issued night vision goggles. Designed to interface with the standard issue AN/PVS-14 J-Arm and AN/PVS-7B/D Horn, it raises the bar for stability, durability, and innovation.
The G11 will clip into any standard-style shroud, but offers more adjustments than the legacy Rhino Mount. Warfighters now have the ability to adjust fore/aft, vertical, and tilt to ensure their goggle is correctly placed in front of their eye for optimal field of view and situational awareness. Adjustments are done with the familiar Wilcox mechanisms found on their other mounts.
Perhaps the biggest improvement over the legacy system is the elimination of wobble in the J-Arm to Mount interface. Warfighters have developed ingenious methods to reduce the wobble in their goggle over the years. But, these solutions are not elegant and achieve only moderate success. Wilcox solved this problem with the development of mechanical tension adjustment. After the J-Arm is inserted, a small Allen Key (included) is used to push a worm gear lever forward under the J-Arm’s horn. This action forces the J-Arm upwards into the cradle, reducing or eliminating the wobble. The system works incredibly well and feels as stable as a dovetail interface.
