See The Wilcox Industries Dual Powered Aviation Mount at Warrior East

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

We originally mentioned the Dual Powered Aviation Mount during Warrior West. It will be on display at this week’s Warrior East so be sure to check it out.

Wilcox Industries Dual Powered Aviation Mount

Newington, NH-Wilcox has designed a Dual Powered Aviation Mount (DPAM) for use by Aviators, crewman and on-the-ground operators that offers an overall improvement to the current existing systems. The DPAM mount works with the ANVS-6/9, F4949, F5050 and GPNVG night vision goggles.

This mount fully integrates into the currently used external batteries utilizing a standard 4-pin Lemo connector or can run off an internal 123A lithium battery for up to eight hours. The internal backup battery provides power to the NVG even when removed from the mount. This completely eliminates the need for the snap on battery pack and the additional weight.

Unique features of the DPAM include a low-battery indicator light and a Power Mode selection that allows the operator to choose between the external and internal power supply without having to remove the helmet. The system has a switch guard that protects against accidental snags.

DPAM_Mount_left_Battery

An NVG flip button allows the goggle to “flip up” into a stowed position when not in use. This enables the auto-off capabilities of the goggle helping to save battery life. The system has several adjustment points for a precise fit. An interface plate provides a stable mounting platform and helps with the fit. It also allows the DPAM to easily be removed from the shroud.

The mount is manufactured from lightweight aerospace grade metal and high strength polymer. A field replaceable ball detent insert provides the ability to set tolerances over the life of the mount. The mount fist into ballistic and non-ballistic helmets drilled with the standard one or three-hole pattern and when used with Wilcox’s line of NVG shrouds. The mount and shroud weigh a minimal 5.92 ounces. For ordering and pricing information contact Wilcox Industries at www.wilcoxind.com.
