Aviation Specialties Unlimited (ASU) is bringing night-vision capabilities to Helitech in Amsterdam this week. The company said it will show a new night-vision display that enables attendees to test night-vision goggles. It will also host a roundtable discussion for the equipment's future in Europe.

“Interest continues to grow in Europe on the use of night-vision goggles for civilian use that includes law enforcement, emergency medical services, search and rescue, and other operations," said ASU President Jim Winkel. "Our goal with the new booth and roundtable discussion is to raise awareness on how night-vision goggle use enhances the safety of nighttime operations worldwide.”


The roundtable, which is scheduled for Oct. 17 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., will feature a panel of experts who will discuss regulatory policies and procedures and their impact on operations. Registration to attend the panel is required.

“We have spent years investing time and resources to help operators in Europe and throughout the world start nighttime operations that use NVGs,” said ASU VP of Engineering Kip McDermott. “Obtaining NVGs is only the first step in the process. We help operators modify aircraft, train pilots and crew members on how to use the NVGs and we work on training repair stations to service and repair goggles.”
