Night Vision Imaging System
(NVIS) Compliant Lighting Components
The solution is to filter the display (light source) so that it emits the necessary light for proper operation in both day and night environments while attenuating levels of the respective red and near IR radiation (i.e., removing the component that falls within the NVIS response curve). The filter must attenuate the noise to a level less than the lowest outside night sky radiation reflective source. MIL-L-85762A and MIL-STD 3009 establishes the requirements for NVIS compatible aircraft interior lighting.
Lumitron offers many NVG/NVIS optical filtering choices for both incandescent and LED light sources. Our glass construction NVG/NVIS optical ring filters, flexible lead assembly lamps, and legacy replacement based lamps are widely used in the industry to effectively meet night vision compatible lighting specifications. We now offer PolyVision for incandescent light sources for added design flexibility. Our PolyVision NVG/NVIS optical filtering for LEDs extends achievable night vision compatible lighting compliance to a broad range of display products from annunciators and push-button switches to the most advanced active-matrix multi-color liquid crystal displays (AMLCDs).
