Built to be easily added to anyone’s ensemble, this is a device that you can rely on consistently because of its robust build and flexibility as a night vision device.


You are currently viewing the Armasight Discovery 5x, a night vision binocular that offers medium range scoping. This model is the Standard Definition model and offers a resolution of 45/51 lp/mm.


One of the many advantages of the Armasight Discovery is simply that it is a pair of night vision binoculars, meaning that it gives you a better overall image than a monocular. You will gain depth perception and with that a more intuitive sense of the scenario that you are looking at. Thanks to the Armasight Discovery 5x’s rugged lightweight design, it isn’t a problem if you expect to be on the move a lot, as it can easily be brought with you anywhere.


Also, the Armasight Discovery brags an Infra Red illuminator, making it a device that you can rely on even in extremely dark situations or even total darkness. By having infrared capabilities at any moment you don’t have to worry about cramped situations where light amplification technology provided by the image intensifier tube might not be enough. This just adds to the value and flexibility that this night vision device offers you.


Built to be user friendly, the Armasight Discovery has simple controls, a low battery indicator in the Field of View, and an ergonomic design.


The Armasight Discovery ships with a user manual with warranty card, an IR850 detachable long range infrared illuminator, 1x CR123A battery, a lens cap, a lens tissue, a neck lanyard, a packing box, and a soft carrying case.

Delivery Time and Manufacturing Process for Armasight Discovery 5x SD Gen 2+ Night Vision Binocular Standard Definition w/5x Magnification:

Most of our manufacturers do not keep products like Armasight Discovery 5x SD Gen 2+ Night Vision Binocular Standard Definition w/5x Magnification assembled on the shelf. Night Vision tubes are kept separate from the body of the unit. When the order is placed, the manufacturer starts the order processing and assembly process which includes the following:

  • Order processing - we collect all the necessary information including address and phone numbers. We also make sure that our customer ordered the correct product for their needs and that the product can be exported by US law to the country of destination. In some cases a signed export compliance form is required.
  • QC - in this step the manufacturer will inspect all individual parts which will be used to assemble the night vision device for any defects.
  • Production & Assembly - during production, all the parts are put together. Night Vision tubes in inserted into the body of the unit and all the complex electronics for the device are connected. This process takes place in a special lab called the "clean room" as even a small speckle of dust can cause undesired optical effect.
  • QA - one the night vision device is assembled, it goes through a rigorous testing process to make sure it meets all the expected specifications and all parts function as expected. For this most manufacturers have a special "dark room" designed to allow testing of the units without causing incidental damage to the night vision tube by exposure to bright light.
  • Packaging - this is a key process as well. In most case your night vision device will be shipped to you directly from the manufacturer but sometimes needs to be sent to us first. In either case items need to be packaged securely to avoid any kind of damage during transportation.
  • Shipping - as described above items will most of the time ship from the manufacturer. For most domestic orders (unless shipping to POB or AFB) a premium shipper like FedEx or UPS will be used.

Only by following the above steps can we along with our manufacturers bring you - our customer - night vision products of highest quality, However as you can understand the above process can take several days to complete. For example if your device fails QA, the entire process restarts. Also at QC stage a manufacturer may realize that the tube they have in stock has a defect and a replacement tube needs to be ordered. Due to the complexity of this process, it is prudent to expect 3-4 business days for production and handling of the purchased device. Keep in mind that this process is designed to guarantee your satisfaction with the night vision device of your choice.  It occasionally possible to expedite the process for urgent orders but addional fees or other restrictions may apply.
