The Night Vision Awards selection committee announced today that they are now taking nominations for the 2013 Night Vision Awards Show to be held in Orlando at the Airborne Law Enforcement Agency’s (ALEA) annual conference. Awards will be presented to recipients on Thursday, July 18th at an awards reception from 4:30-6 p.m.
“The last awards held at ALEA last summer was a great event and ended up being standing room only,” said Aviation Specialties Unlimited Director of Sales and Marketing Hannah Gordon. “We had record attendance and a great field of recipients. We hope attendees from ALEA will come out and help us honor the winners at this show.”
The Night Vision Awards are an awards series with recognition events held throughout the year hosted by ASU, Night Flight Concepts, Vertical Magazine and RotorCraft Pro Magazine. The purpose of this event series is to promote operational leadership and excellence in the use of Night Vision, in North America and around the world.
“Vertical magazine is delighted to once again partner with the night vision community to support its efforts to recognize and raise awareness of the benefits of Night Vision Technology,” said Publisher Mike Reyno. “These awards play an important role in celebrating the achievements and the ongoing excellence of the Law Enforcement Units using NVGs.”
Additional awards will be presented at NightCon 2013 in Dallas in September.
“The Night Vision Awards series provides an important opportunity to recognize leaders in night vision operations and showcase their NVG achievements,” stated Night Flight Concepts president Adam Aldous. “NFC is pleased to join forces again with ASU and the other sponsors – as we did in 2012 – to produce the Night Vision Awards and celebrate the achievements of these organizations demonstrating leadership, success and commitment to Night vision operational excellence, safety and community awareness.”
“We at Rotorcraft Pro are thrilled to partner in this event which supports the night vision community and the crews using NVG’s,” said Editor-in-Chief Lyn Burks. “Night vision technology, and the operators using it, have had a significant impact on improving safety in our industry and they deserve to be recognized.”
