Paper Abstract

The development of suitable NVGs for the aviator has taken a considerable amount of time. NVGs are now in widespread use in both fixed and rotary-wing aircraft. This paper examines the near term future for NVGs and options for their replacement. A number of technical challenges are posed by novel NVGs, integrate helmet systems and steerable sensor system. These are discussed with the paper together with associated research projects.
