Sikorsky Aerospace Services (SAS) has secured an exclusive sales and distribution agreement with Euless, Texas-based Aero Dynamix involving night vision imaging system (NVIS) packages on the S-76 series. The agreement calls for SAS to distribute NVIS and Aero Dynamix to manufacture and service NVIS components—including edge lit panels (ELPs), switch panels, circuit breaker and control panels—for S-76 operators. Steve Bohlman, SAS director of commercial and international military customer support, noted that night vision is particularly important for SAR and EMS operators. The arrangement allows SAS to upgrade night vision goggle (NVG) avionics from various manufacturers, including Garmin, Honeywell and Rockwell Collins.
