Optronic Laboratories has introduced the OL 770-NVS night-vision display test-and-measurement system for measurement of night-vision goggle (NVG)-compatible lighting and displays. "Compatibility between night-vision goggles and imaging systems or cockpit displays and lighting is critical in ensuring the safety of military, security, and rescue teams, as well as to the successful execution of field operations," the manufacturer said. "This system addresses the needs of the aerospace lighting industry for quantifying cockpit display NVIS (night-vision imaging system) compatibility and aircraft exterior lighting."Multichannel detection allows ultrafast measurements of spectral radiance, luminance, chromaticity, NVISa and NVISb, while exceeding MIL-L-86762A Appendix B / MIL-STD-3009 requirements. The system also features precise, direct-viewing imaging optics and digital signal processing (DSP) technology. It is portable and lightweight and offers a choice of measurement modes. Its powerful software is capable of all calculations currently required and is easily extended to new requirements. Windows 2000/XP-compatible software allows for turnkey automated operation and seamless integration with Microsoft Excel and Word, providing powerful extensions to data collection and reporting.
