The ITAR-free Mamba40 can be used in a monocular or binocular low-light environment.

The objective and eyepiece are designed to work together when used in an application with the latest generation of high-resolution image tubes. The Mamba40 objective offers a spectral range of 600 nm-900 nm, 92 percent transmission and weighs 35g. The eyepiece has a spectral range of 420 nm-620 nm, 85 percent transmission and weighs in at 25g. The optics are compatible with an 18 mm image intensifier tube.

Mamba40’s viewing angle and bright optics are well suited for aviation, close-quarter engagement, surveillance and recon applications. Configurations can also be customized to meet specific customer needs.

The optical system is designed to operate from -40oC to +55oC. It can be stored in temperatures from -51oC to +71oC. It can withstand 5-55Hz vibration and force up to 2.5g. Mechanical shock is rated at 40g/ms, and sealing is IP658.
