NVIS Modifications

The Night Vision Imaging Systems (NVIS) developed by NSE are based on all the aircraft modifications that are required for flight operations to be compatible with the use of Night Vision Goggles. The modifications include all essential products (filters, diodes, backlit panels, and harmonization systems of lighting). NSE offers customized solutions carried out in accordance with customer requirements, and certified by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). To do this, the company relies on:

  • a wide range of skills in the fields of optics, electronics, optronics, and precision engineering,
  • a technical staff with more than 20 years of NVIS experience, including pilots among the development teams, and
  • the use of innovative means and efficient resources.

Upon thorough inspection of the aircraft, a mock-up of the modifications is proposed to the customer. The NVIS products are developed in compliance with MIL STD 3009, DO 275 and DO 160. They can be installed either as original equipment by the manufacturers (optional), or during upgrade by the operators.


More than 1100 installations were performed by NSE worldwide
