Helmet Mount Assemblies for the PVS-14
The most common accessory for the PVS-14 night vision monocular is a helmet mount assembly. A helmet mount is key in the battlefield as well as in close quarters combat. There are many options and setups to choose from, but two of the most common are the MICH and PASGT Helmet Mount Assemblies from ITT.
- MICH: Modular Integrated Communications Helmet
- PASGT: Personal Armor System for Ground Troops
The MICH and PASGT Helmet Mount assemblies from ITT are almost identical in design. The only difference is in the mounting design for each helmet. As far as function, the two are identical. Both are equipped with the necessary equipment for non-permanent strap-on and single hole bolt-on attachments. Both Helmet Mounts are compatible with the PVS-7, PVS-14 and MV-14 style Night Vision Device as well as adaptable to many more.
The difference between the two assemblies is in the helmet lip adapter at the front of the plate. The connections are slightly different for each due to the different molds of the helmets. See the black arrows in strap assembly images below for reference.
Each Assembly consists of the base, strap, and arm. The arm can attach and detach quickly to remove the unnecessary bulk from the helmet when not in use. The arm also has 3 key adjustments: Flip-up/down, tilt, and a 17 point fore and aft adjustment. The ability to customize these three adjustments, all of which can be done with one hand, guarantees comfort and convenience.
Currently in deployment with U.S. Armed Forces and first responders, the MICH and PASGT Helmet Mount assemblies are key in the hands-free tactical operation of night vision equipment.
