North Slope Borough Search and Rescue Aviation Unit Initiates Night Vision Program Rollout with Selection of NVIO Systems CBT


North Slope Borough’s


Search and Rescue Aviation Unit has selected NVIO™ Systems Night Vision Goggle (NVG) Computer-Based Training (CBT) to kick-start the rollout of a comprehensive night vision program that will provide strate- gic capabilities to enhance per- formance during night opera- tion and realize organizational goals . The mission of NSB’s Search and Rescue Department


is to increase the safety of all of its residents by providing safe, rapid and reliable airborne response which includes aero medical evacuation, search and rescue, and other emergencies. The harsh environment that NSB works in makes NVGs a natural to mitigate risk. However, to effectively and effi- ciently utilize NVGs to their full potential requires an advanced understanding of night vision equipment, maintenance processes, and operator han- dling procedures to enhance safety and operational capabili- ties of an organization. NSB has engaged Night Flight Concepts,


a leading provider of compre- hensive night vision solutions, to support the end-to-end NVG program. Night Flight Concepts will work with NSB to plan, equip, train and support their NVIS program, using the unique and flexible NVIO NVG CBT to support initial and recurrent training needs. The NVIO NVG CBT is an internet-based FAA approved blended training system featur- ing instruction on NVG system capabilities and limitations, operational concepts and requirements, equipment parts familiarization, and NVG oper- ations and maintenance proce- dures. Collaboration between Night Flight Concepts and Gladstone Aerospace


Corporation, the NVIO™ CBT was designed to help optimize NVG training support programs for operators and maintainers helping to train individuals to standard and maintain compe- tency faster and easier than using traditional methods “Reliable, quick and efficient training for our pilots and crewmembers is one of the back- bones of our training philoso- phy,” stated NSB’s Chief Pilot Pat Patterson. “Using the NVIO NVG CBT not only provides ini- tial and recurrent training, it also allows for automatic stan- dardization of the training and 24/7 access because of its delivery system, which is a plus for a SAR flight organization - particularly in our remote location.” ◆
