Plusafe NVG helipad landing lighting system
NVG:Night Vision Googles (NVG),Every day more and more pilots and crews use Night Vision Googles (NVG) for night operations. The cost of NVG is constantly decreasing and makes it accessible to more pilots and helicopter companies.
Why a NVG compatible helipad lighting are required?
With a traditional lighting system, the good "reading" of the heliport by the pilot is not guaranteed. The main cause is that the Night Vision Google amplifies residual light at night but doesn't render colors. Following this observation, we have developed and produced a "NVG Enhanced" lighting system.
The use of NVGs enables a pilot to improve his/her situational awareness during nighttime VMC. NVGs function by amplifying ambient light through a process of image intensification. Using NVGs in dark conditions, pilots can see the terrain and perform flight operations.
On our helipad lights,Infrared are used in conjunction with visible LEDs the InfraRed and the visible lights can be independently controlled or together operated, providing an efficient solution to activate both types of light on a single unit. This system makes flying with Night Vision Googles easier and safer.
