AN/PSQ-20/20A Goggles Blind? Good News!

If your AN/PSQ-20, NSN 5855-01-534-6449, or AN/PSQ-20A, NSN 5855-01-603-0489, night vision goggles aren’t working, there’s good news. You can get them fixed if they qualify.

The fix doesn’t cover ancillary items or components of end item for the goggles and is available only if the goggles fail after a thorough inspection following TM 11-5855-322-10 or TM 11-5855-335-10 or their -23&Ps. Your 94F repairman does that.

To get your goggles fixed, you’ll need a return authorization from the manufacturer. Get it by logging into the warranty repair portal:

New users will need to register by clicking on the HERE button on the left side of the web page. Returning users can log on with their email address, password and DODAAC.

Once you receive a return authorization, fill out a DD Form 1348-1A and ship the goggles to:

Test Set Ensures Clear Vision

Many arms rooms already have a device that makes sure night vision devices, weapon sights, and driver’s viewers work properly.

The TS-4348/UV provides a near- infrared uniformly illuminated target that shows if night vision goggles meet the high and low light resolution requirements called for in the TMs.

Unfortunately, most TS-4348/UVs sit because no one knows how to use them. As a result, night vision or sight problems aren’t spotted until Soldiers go to the field.

To learn how to use the TS-4348/UV, see TM 11-5855-299-12&P.

If your unit doesn’t have a TS-4348/UV, order it with NSN 6625-01-323-9584 for around $1,700.

Remember, to be accurate, the TS-4348/UV must be calibrated. Check its TMDE calibration label to see when it’s due. No label? Send it to TMDE for calibration.

3 Tips for Getting PS Back Issues

We get lots of requests for PS back issues. That’s great! But we also get returns from the post office after filling back issue requests. That’s not so great and it’s costly, too.

Here are some tips to help make sure those back issues reach you:

Give us a good mailing address. Most returns are due to incomplete or inaccurate mailing addresses. Including a street with the address is critical. If you have any problems with mail reaching you at your military address, use your home address instead. No worries—our mailing list is never sold or shared.

We’ve gotten “refused” returns, too. Make sure that you tell whoever usually gets the mail at your unit that you’re expecting a package from PS. In your original request, specify the months or years and how many copies of each PS issue you want. Send your back issue request to:

You can also request back issues by clicking on the REQUEST BACK ISSUE button at our website:   Just scroll down to the bottom of the tan-colored column.     To set up a monthly subscription to PS, follow the instructions at: can always download PS in digital form from our website, too.

PS Mobile App

You can also load recent issues of the magazine to your mobile device by using the PS Magazine mobile app. Read about it at:

PS supports the concept that you meet inspection requirements of having three years of PS Magazine on hand if you have them in either print or on your mobile device. Access means accessibility, not print vs mobile format.

Who Says? PS SAYS!

From aircraft to tanks, uniforms to HAZMAT, yes, even bandage to aid stations–name the subject and you’ll find PS Magazine there, using plain language and a unique format to explain a procedure or policy.

PS is the postscript with the information that keeps you going until the TM, FM, regulation, pamphlet or other publication catches up.

PS Magazine has been around since 1951.  Its job is to interpret official maintenance and supply policies and procedures in a way that increases the effectiveness of unit-level maintenance and supply.

PS must get approval from the technical experts before an article is printed. So, it can be used to order the NSNs it recommends, to follow the procedures it outlines or to fabricate a tool from plans it gives.

Next time you see a copy of PS, remember: It is your commander’s authority for maintenance and supply actions until the TM or other publications catch up.
