Night Flight Concepts, a premier provider of comprehensive night vision solutions, is pleased to announce plans for a complementary, live educational webinar on October 6, 2010 at 1:00 pm EST to Demystify Night Vision Goggle (NVG) Issues as part of its commitment to furthering NVG Safety.
Night Vision Systems are recognized today as a necessary capability to enhance situational awareness and increase safety for night flying; however, there remain many misconceptions and issues in the industry concerning NVG use. For years, executives from Night Flight Concepts (NFC) have been speaking at conferences and trade shows and industry events to share lessons learned from civil and military use to help organizations better understand the issues and opportunities associated with NVGs. The NFC team hopes to use this free online medium to extend the reach and accessibility to help educate and inform individuals of safety related issues relating to the use of NVGs in aircraft.
“We believe knowledge is power. With night vision solutions, being informed translates directly into better solutions, higher performance and greater safety” says Night Flight Concepts CEO, Adam Aldous. “This upcoming webinar initiative is part of our ongoing efforts to work with government, non-profit and industry partners to help educate the market on critical issues related to night vision goggles use”.
In this complimentary webinar, listeners will learn about:
– NVG systems authorized for use by the FAA in the NAS
– Differences in NVG classification (the advantages and disadvantages for both class A and class B objective lens)
– Safety related performance issues between an NVG system and the aircraft lighting system
– Issues related to continued Airworthiness of an NVG-compatible aircraft
– NVG Program Planning Tips
“Helping organizations plan, implement and maintain night vision goggles is our business,” explains David Luke, Vice President and NVG Subject Matter Expert (SME) for NFC. “We know the power of night vision goggles and the technical advantage that this capability can have in transforming the effectiveness of night operations. However, there are challenges and risks associated with improper NVG use. This webinar will present a technical and regulatory overview to alleviate the confusion and concerns relating to issues of NVG selection, classification and capability.”
