ADS – Stabilizing Retention System for AN/AVS-6 NVGs

ADS Inc recently published a case study on work they did to stabilize Color Night Display Modules for Army Aviators.


Army rotary wing pilots flying with AN/AVS-6 night vision goggles (NVG) and Color Night Display Modules (CNDM) reported excessive vibration during flight.

This vibration created blurring of the CNDM displays, as viewed through the NVGs. This blurring rendered the CNDM displays unreliable, causing aircrew to discontinue use of the CNDM altogether.


ADS and partner Syncro saw this challenge as a critical operational deficiency. In response, the team designed and developed a custom stabilizing retention system for the Army’s AN/AVS-6 NVGs to reduce vibration during flight.

The ADS/Syncro NVG Stabilizers system equips Army AN/AVS-6 NVGs with retention collars to maximize their stiffness and stabilize the CNDM. The NVG Stabilizers allow the full range of NVG movement and adjustment.
