Night vision for Typhoon pilots

Night vision goggles are being tested by Typhoon pilots to enhance and improve their flying performance at night. Developed through the Army Program Executive Office (PEO) Soldier Enhanced Night Vision Goggle advanced technology development program, BAE Systems digitally fused enhanced night vision goggle, or ENVG(D), will allow soldiers to view, via a monocular eyepiece, imagery that exploits features from visible, low-light-level, and infrared sensors. The digitized data can then be shared across the battlefield, enabling the Army’s vision for the digital battlefield. The design and delivery of this prototype is a milestone in the Army’s roadmap toward a digitally fused night vision goggle capability. It substantially improves situational awareness for our men and women in combat, which means increased mission effectiveness and, more important, increased survivability. Now the system is being developed for fighter pilots. Mounted Symbology System offers along with the night compatible cockpit, the FENN NG2000Ti goggles will provide pilots with x-ray like vision right through the night. Night Vision Goggle trials are ongoing and demonstrate the continued efforts to integrate the latest technologies into the Typhoon system.
