ALEA Annual Conference, Tucson, AZ, July 14, 2010 – Becker Avionics, a leading provider of communication, navigation, surveillance and search & rescue equipment for airborne and ground applications, announces that the Audio Control Units (ACU) for its Digital Audio and Intercom System (DVCS6100) are delivered as Night Vision Goggle (NVG) NVIS green B compatible, or upon request as NVG certified. The United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) recently published its final rule making for NVG operation, establishing requirements for aircraft night vision goggle training, proficiency and operations. NVG operations are a tool to enhance the pilot's ability to maintain visual reference at night. As a result, many operators are adopting NVG capability for their aircraft. By making the commitment to NVG compatibility, Becker Avionics is endeavoring to offer a better and safer solution for its customers as the industry moves towards expanding NVG operations.
The DVCS6100 design provides the customer with ability to match a wide range of operational requirements with only one system. The built-in scalability and flexibility reduces not only the cost and time requirements for constant re-engineering and certification for a tailored system solution, but also reduces the learning curve for integration, maintenance and troubleshooting time. Through software programming options, the system is both easily and quickly configurable to individual customer requirements, thus saving time and money.
No matter what the mission; from Police and EMS, to passenger transport and surveillance or utility operations, the Becker Digital Audio system ensures a more modern and capable aerial platform.
