The single tube/single eyepiece approach to night vision missions is based upon the proven concept that independent use of each eye maximizes the ability of the user to operate under a wide range of low light conditions. With the RANTEL, the user retains his full peripheral vision in the unaided eye in conjunction with the 40 Field-of-View offered by the night vision device. The RANTEL can be hand-held or installed on a variety of standard and optional head mount/ helmet mount assemblies for hands-free use.

Through classroom discussions, practical exercises, live-fire range drills and scenario-based exercises using marking rounds, NTOA trainers will cover a systematic approach to equipment selection, its use and benefits, as well as its limitations and operational considerations. Upon completion, students will understand the nomenclature, function and operation of various night vision monoculars, goggles and binoculars, as well as various infrared laser sighting systems, the benefits and limitations of night vision devices and associated equipment, and the dangers presented by infrared laser devices to eye safety. Students will also discuss the importance of developing an adequate and defensible night vision training program.
