Lightweight night-vision goggles for commercial aircraft pilots introduced by ASU
BOISE, Idaho – Aviation Specialties Unlimited (ASU) Inc. in Boise, Idaho, is introducing the E3 Lightweight Night Vision Goggle for aircraft pilots who fly helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft at night.
The night-vision goggles weigh less than 400 grams to lower total helmet weight and reduce neck strain, and are made of military-grade aluminum and titanium metals.
They goggles are intuitive to focus and adjust, and offer collimation set for life. They are backward-compatible with legacy night-vision goggle mounts and battery packs, and are relatively easy to maintain, company officials say.
The goggles have shielding from electromagnetic interference, good depth perception and peripheral field of view for unaided look-under and look-around. Image tubes are available in white or green phosphor.
ASU is offering a special rate for the goggles of $11,995 for those who commit to pre-order the first 100 E3 goggles. This rate offers the Aeronox mount and battery pack for free and a one-year warranty. This limited offer is only for commercial pilots, not federal or military organizations.
With flight testing complete and environmental testing underway, ASU is working to have the E3 goggles in production by this summer. ASU will continue to sell and service existing night-vision goggles, and remains authorized to repair and service L-3 and Harris goggles.
