Night vision goggles (NVGs) are an essential piece of any helicopter pilot's gear. They are necessary for low-visibility situations, as they allow the pilot to see details they wouldn't have usually been able to discern.
NVGs turn typically-monochrome nighttime vision into sharp, focused imagery, allowing for precision at night or in other situations where reduced visibility has occurred.
Essential Features of Night Vision
Allows a user to see sharper details than normal
Works best in low-visibility or low-light situations
Converts imagery from monochrome to green for enhanced vision
Pilots can use it to pick up previously undetected details
NVGs are often referred to as image intensifiers because that's what they do. Using the minuscule amount of light available at night, such as moonlight, they intensify the image enough that a user's eyes can make out small details.
Pilots prefer to use these goggles when flying at night, as they provide the ability to see small details on both the ground and in the air.
There is no doubt that NVGs are essential. Their numerous applications have made night flying and reduced-visibility flight more straightforward and effective for pilots. Since this equipment is both expensive and effective, finding the proper accessories and storage is crucial.
Features of NVG Accessories
Accessories can make NVGs even more effective than usual, allowing users to get more longevity out of the product.
Accessories can help make NVGs more effective by:
Allowing for easy storage and usage of auxiliary power
Providing effective transport methods for the NVGs
Making storage and transport damage-free
NVGs can be heavy, so some accessories can help mitigate the extra weight of the goggles and battery packs. Additionally, pins and racks can help to more effectively mount the NVGs, which allows the user to focus more on combat and flight.
Proper storage is just as important as having the right accessories for your NVGs. Users that store their NVGs effectively will increase the product's longevity and effectiveness. Storage is an easy way to reduce damage to NVGs if they are frequently used.
Secure storage options can prevent the equipment from sliding around the cockpit, providing a user with the ability to store additional accessories and battery packs all in one location.

If a user's NVG needs additional support or further adjustments, a helmet or visor mount might be necessary. A proper mount can ensure that a user's NVG stays aligned with their eyes. Also, it can ensure that additional accessories stay in place.
