Aviation Specialties Unlimited, Inc. (ASU), a reputable provider with over 28 years of global experience in modifying aircraft for civil and military night vision operations, has officially released its technical standard ordered (TSO’d) E3 night vision goggle (NVG) for orders.

This cutting-edge technology will be prominently showcased in an interactive display at HAI’s Heli-Expo in Anaheim, California, from February 26 to 29 at booth 2802.

“After years of research, development, and hard work by the entire ASU team, we are pleased to announce that we are taking orders for our TSO’d E3 NVG,” said ASU president Joseph Estrera. “We believe E3 will be a significant game changer in our industry. Bringing it to HAI Heli-Expo will allow industry professionals to see and feel the difference first-hand.”

The E3 goggle introduces several enhancements over the legacy aviation goggle that has existed for more than four decades. Key improvements include a 30 per cent reduction in total head weight, alleviating neck strain.

It features robust military-grade construction using durable aluminum and titanium materials. Intuitive adjustments further enable enhanced look-around viewing experiences. Notably, E3 maintains backward compatibility with existing ANVIS mounts and battery packs.

ASU remains committed to both advancing innovation and providing education in the field of aviation night vision.

At HAI Heli-Expo 2024, attendees are encouraged to visit booth 2802 to explore E3 NVG’s cutting-edge features through a hands-on interactive display. This unique opportunity allows industry professionals to directly compare E3 with the current ANVIS night vision goggle, experiencing the weight reduction and ergonomic advancements that set E3 apart.

“While we showcase E3’s innovative features, we also want attendees to actively engage with the technology,” noted vice president of sales Dan Meyer. “Our hands-on interactive display offers a tangible experience, allowing visitors to appreciate E3’s capabilities and its impact on redefining industry standards.”
