NVG Head Mounting Systems
The Wilcox NVG Head Mounting System allows an operator to quickly mount or dismount an AN/PVS–7A, 7C, 15, or 18 NVG for use in night operations. The NVG Head Mounting System is the operator’s choice when wearing a helmet is not an option. This system is unique in that it provides two modes of operation. The first mode allows the Universal NVG Mount to “break away” from the base under a stressed condition, such as when prompted by interference during fast roping, maritime operations, hard impact or when entering or exiting mobility platforms. Without the Wilcox breakaway feature, the potential to induce neck injury is increased. The second mode allows the Universal NVG Mount to securely lock the mount to the base.
The Wilcox NVG Mounting Systems Product Line is featured with a wide range of adjustments to customize the position of the Night Vision Goggle for proper eye position and relief.
