Night Flight Concepts (NFC) is pleased to announce that Tampa PD Aviation Unit, a long-time user of NFC NVG Maintenance Services, has procured new Laser Armorâ„¢ Light Interference Filters (LIF) to protect their NVGs from malicious laser strikes encountered by their pilots and aircrew members. The aviation unit is one of the first law enforcement agencies to take advantage of these new technology filters.
â€œThe problem of laser strikes on law enforcement helicopters has been increasing dramatically for many yearsâ€, stated Sgt. William Shaw. â€œHaving worked with Night Flight Concepts for many years prompted our quick action when the product became available. We knew we could expect an exceptional product that would deliver the results we need. The NVG filters add one more level of safety for our Aviation Unitsâ€™ Pilots and Aircrew.â€
â€œWhile it is true that NVGs offer protection against the potential harmful retinal burns that might be received, the filters enhance that capability by allowing the goggles to function normally by reducing the blooming effect significantlyâ€ stated Dr. Dudley consultant an expert in aerospace physiology. â€œWe are pleased to extend the range of products and services provided to the Tampa PD and proud to have their continued supportâ€, stated Adam Aldous, President of Night Flight Concepts.
