The RQE Universal Bridge is a lightweight, highly adaptive interface component for use with a variety of image intensified, DVO, digital, or thermal systems. It is compatible/adaptive to a wide range of legacy electro-optics via common shoe-type or adapter.
UNIVERSAL LIGHTWEIGHT ADAPTIVE
The Universal Bridge by Red Queen Effect is a lightweight, highly adaptive interface component for use with a variety of image intensified, DVO, digital, or thermal systems. It is compatible/adaptive to a wide range of legacy electro-optics via common shoe-type or adapter.
QD MODE OR FIXED BINOCULAR MODE
The UB has a mechanical release safety as well as a mechanism to fix monoculars in the bridge for a semi-permanent system. Simply install the included blue screws in the appropriate hole while a shoe is inserted, and the shoe is fixed in the bridge until you remove the blue screw. This is great for high speed applications and keeping your NVGs fixed to your bridge for extended periods of use.
MULTIPLE MISSION OPTIONS
The UB is designed for a multitude of mission options from military and law enforcement, to night time predator and hog hunting. The UB allows use with a PVS-14, MUM, Trijicon IR Patrol, BAE SkeetIR, Armasight Q14, and any helmet-mountable night vision device with a standard dovetail shoe or adapter. There is no need for multiple bridge variants or key component exchanges.
The Universal Bridge extends stand-off, inter-pupilary distance, and helmet mount drop beyond any currently offered product with highly adaptive compatibility. This patented unique design allows for mixed or like modules to be used independently or in tandem with the correct inter-pupilary adjustment.
Dovetail shoes typically wear and wobble over time, but the RQE patented “tolerance tooth” allows adjustment the bridge’s dovetail shoe to compensate for wear, temperature changes or tolerances to reduce/eliminate wobble at the juncture point. The tolerance tooth can be adjusted to fit a specific model of helmet mount, or to make the bridge fit like-new after thousands of repetitions in and out of a helmet mount.
