At ASU, the biggest advance in helmet NVGs is white phosphor Generation III NVG system. White phosphor provides the viewer, as opposed to the more NVGs. Estrera explains the advantages imaging performance to the ANVIS level performance and visual acuity to the pilot.” Such systems are also capable of protecting wearers from laser strikes.
This year ASU capitalized on their research and development efforts by introducing a battery pack with reduced NVGs. This gives the pilot enhanced operation of the ANVIS goggle. “On the heels of this ANVIS goggle improvement effort, we have pushed to continually system technology itself and have embarked on the product improvement of the ANVIS helmet mount and battery pack,” Estrera added.
