Aviation Specialties Unlimited, Inc. (ASU) and Harris Corp. (Harris) recently entered into a distributor agreement, making ASU an authorized reseller for Harris’ technical standard order (TSO) of night-vision goggles (NVGs).
This agreement authorizes ASU to sell, service and repair Harris aviation NVGs for foreign civil and military aviation customers. An additional exclusive agreement for aviation and ground product sales in Colombia is in the final stages as well as a basic ordering agreement (BOA) to further streamline purchasing for customers.
With the new agreements in place and the upcoming BOA, ASU customers can now expect quick and streamlined quoting, leading to faster purchasing and delivery. The TSO assures operators that Harris NVG materials and parts meet or exceed FAA design and production standards for flight safety. The TSO certification also alleviates the need for part number specificity in approval for use.
