Central Military District pilots master night vision goggles

The crews of helicopters of the Tolmachevo airbase for the first time fly in modernized night-vision goggles in the mountainous regions of Altai MIC with reference to the press service of the Central Military District.

Central Military District pilots master night vision goggles


“The crews of the Mi-8AMTSH-B Terminator helicopters, under the guidance of instructors of the center of combat use and training of flight personnel, carry out targeted practical flights at night with the use of GEO-ONV1-01 glasses and an infrared front-view station,” the release said.

It is reported that "during flights at extremely low altitudes on helicopters, lighting devices and external identification signals were completely turned off." During training, special attention is paid to the issue of “searching the air for unprepared landing sites for a helicopter”.

Classes will last about 15 days. During this time, each pilot will have to fly at least 60 an hour at night.

"Night vision goggles are designed to monitor the terrain and control the helicopter at night, as well as to search for people and equipment," the press service said.

      This, of course, is a huge leap forward for piloting a helicopter at night, night vision goggles twenty years ago were science fiction.

        Well, I don’t know what is fiction and what is not. I served 86-88 and even then any BMD was equipped with night vision devices. The commander of the NVD was fixed and the driver’s mechanic removed the usual triplex and set the NVD. affairs for less than a minute. Since then, technology has stepped forward so that the fantastic thing is that our joy is only now being mastered.

              And here is a link to an article in "Krasnaya Zvezda" about these NV glasses.

          Even earlier, while mastering the T-55A tank, approximately in 1968, I personally personally with surprise looked at the night terrain through the driver’s mechanics NV. The only drawback was the mandatory presence of an infrared illuminator.

            Well done guys! Shame the scribbler! soldier
            It remains for Taperich to prove this in practice - to weld the NVG on the helmet, and let you vilify for a period of time "about 15 days. During this time, each pilot will have to fly at night for at least 60 hours"... laughing
            Whoever will live to see the end of the test - let him rejoice with me for our falcons, FINALLY- SO received "modernized GLASSES night vision "!

              apparently an unsuccessful formulation let me down. I was not talking about the fact that every pilot needs to hang a stationary NVD on his helmet. And about the fact that in 30 years they had to integrate it into the flight helmet. Type of simple glasses. both in weight and in size.

                No, Alexei, you have order with the wording ... You tell me what ...
                The first store rifle in Russia appeared in 1886 year.
                And the first machine made Fedorov in 1916 year!
                And for some reason in Russia NO ONE haughtily said that "it is fantastic that ours are only now mastering this joy" and for 30 years they already "should have!"...
                Either there was no Internet, or were people more decent? ...

                  Maybe I'm messy. But you must admit that in the eighties, each BMD, BTRD, each tank, and probably each BMP were equipped with NVD. NVDs simply lay in cars; they were not secret. And from this it follows that it was already an outdated model. And the flyers (I apologize for the pathos) have always been at the forefront of progress. Therefore, their devices were less compact. Then what is so offensive and strange you find in my assumption.

      And I, too, have been dreaming for a long time: to go not in simple glasses that compensate for the minus, but in such that in them it would be visible at night as during the day. Then in the country, than to suffer in the heat of the day, one could work at night! Yes, and you could hunt mushrooms at night. Of course, helicopter pilots need such glasses, but we must think about the people! what

        And the fish bite like good at night, large, it’s a pleasure! That would be such glasses at an affordable price.
        NVDs have been in the army for a long time, but why have pilots just begun to use them ???

          Damn the people what are children like? Well, there were 40 years in the army. And what is the effective range? Is it convenient to read devices in them? How much, for example, does a PNV range for a pykhotinist 100 meters? And how many hundred meters will fly a spinner? Yes, if there is just a spruce in the field and the pilot sees it during the flight 0.35 seconds before the collision, he will only have time to say meow and he will not be able to take the car away!

      That's right, you have to train. And pilots must be able to fly, in any conditions.

    Well done. wink The main thing is to use these skills and techniques not only to save the next "Yanukovych" at night on a turntable)))

    The most important thing is that our production points! If we recall our lag behind the NVD, this is a huge step forward! In the 90 years in the Soldier of Fortune there was a series of good articles on this subject. It was clearly indicated how and where. Ours did not fence the garden and they just started to cooperate with the French. The result is obvious. On the tanks, the Russian-made thermal imagers finally appeared, and the pilots got night vision goggles! good

      the glasses are bulky ... But it is better to have them available than not to have them at all ... I think that we will soon lag behind the Western counterparts. It is important what is being done, being tried, studied and implemented. hi

    Of course, from this comment of yours everyone understands that the tank is stronger than the horse, and the donkey will not be able to catch up with the fighter. But to write with all the evidence proving the obvious - this requires a remarkable talent. By itself.
    The first developments on night vision devices were still in the Red Army and the Wehrmacht. http://army-news.ru/2012/06/infrakrasnye-pricely-vermaxta/
    So in the Soviet Army, "twenty years ago" it was not "science fiction". Yes, the use was very limited, but judging by this article, the products were not used in large quantities.

    It does not say that they are doing this for the first time in history. Like, finally, ours ... It says here that they are testing a new modification.
    By the way, I heard about another interesting little thing. A missile illuminating the battlefield with infrared radiation. The enemy does not see the light, you see. It is used in an active collision, not a silent outing. Full-fledged ala spotlight, in contrast to the very specific and limited NVD. As an example - with the shining remote control from the TV to the camera, we see the light. I would like to know more about this. If anyone has an info or a reference, please share)
