Night Vision Goggles Training – Precision Technology

Night Vision Goggle Pilot Training

Enhancing Safety Through Precision Technology
Within a simulator, operators train in total safety on NVG emergency procedures which are too dangerous to replicate in actual flight. Our exclusive VITAL 1100 visual system provides pilots with simulator training that features realistic, detailed, high-resolution views designed for precision training. VITAL 1100 also simulates high quality forward-looking infrared (FLIR) and electro-optical sensors including ColorTV, LowLightTV, All Light Level TV and aircraft remote direct view camera systems. The VITAL 1100 experience also exceeds the FAA Level D and military equivalent standards for NVG training.
