First teased a few days before SHOT Show through Core Vision Industries’ Instagram page, the Adaptable Vision System (AVS) with Integrated Thermal Solution (ITS) has now been officially announced. The teaser trailer is definitely worth the watch and can be found HERE.
While this whole project is still in the works, Core Vision Industries is hoping to deliver by the end of 2022 with distribution aiming for a SHOT Show debut in 2023. Night Vision Inc. will be assembling the housings, and Core Vision Industries will be making them in-house.
While many specifics are yet to be released in terms of final configurations, the final product will be modular. Currently, I believe Core Vision Industries is planning to allow users to choose which tubes and thermal sensors they will get with their unit.
A very cool feature of the AVS + ITS is that the thermal can be switched out. With just a mechanical button, users will be able to swap out the middle insert from different types of proprietary thermal sensors to LWIR to digital recorders.
This unit also includes individual articulation and adjustable IPD locks. Core Vision Industries plans to also have the unit automatically power off when stowed back similar to PVS-31’s.
When using thermal, users will have the option to view through the binos as a night vision only which should help conserve battery, they can also fuse the right tube with a black-hot, white-hot, outline, or thermal image only. The AVS + ITS can also function without a thermal insert if needed.
Designed and built in the USA, Core Vision Industries is changing the game with the more modular civilian-available equivalent to L3Harris’s ENVGB’s. While hard dates and prices haven’t been set, Nick from Core Vision said they were aiming for an MSRP for the AVS + ITS to be under 25K.
Currently, they do not have any information posted on their website, but you can check them out anyways by clicking HERE.
