AB Night Vision STORM Mount for ANVIS
The AB NightVision, Inc. STORM Helmet Mount for ground use is designed to work with night vision goggles using ball-plunger type interfaces. These include the ANVIS-9 (F4949), AVS-6, AN/PVS-23 (F5050), and GPNVG-18 Panoramic Night Vision Goggles, and will fit into any standard bracket style helmet mount.
Over the past several years many of the NVGs mentioned above have been transitioned from aviation use to ground use, requiring a tough, rugged mount to match the more demanding conditions.
The STORM-ACH version is angled to properly interface with the steeper slope of an ACH/MICH Helmet. The STORM-OPS version is angled to properly interface with the shallower slope of helmets such as Ops-Core FAST, Cyre AirFrame, MTEK Flux, or Team Wendy (AFSOC version has outwardly visible battery indicator).
Designed for strength
- Through careful, innovative design, we have been able to reduce weight of our mounts while increasing strength and adding features, all without increasing the cost. The entire frame of each mount is made from 7075-T651 aluminum alloy, which is 36% stronger than common 1018 steel, and 7X stronger than Delrin plastic, another common mount material. Made from the same rigid material, the front body frames won’t flex and spring like a plastic mount, which means the NVG will be much more secure. As well, the design incorporates retention features, located above and below the NVG ball-head, to securely retain the NVG during jumps, bumps, and parachute openings. Users can remove and install the NVG easily without worrying about it coming out when performing aggressive maneuvers.
Robust, easily manipulated controls.
- These mounts have controls that will be familiar to anyone who has used an ANVIS style mount before. When the NVG is in the flipped-down position, the mount allows users to adjust for the perfect placement in relation to their eyes. When the NVG is flipped up, power is automatically cut off, and the goggle is held securely out of the way until needed. CNC machining on STORM & FURY mounts ensures strict tolerances for rock-solid lock-up and reliable function. They feature a ball-detent Jackscrew for precise vertical adjustment that won’t change position with vibrations or use. The vertical travel spans 1.25 inches and can be easily adjusted while wearing gloves.
Redundant power delivery for enhanced reliability.
- Both STORM & FURY work with the standard 4-pin LEMO style connectors found on the ANVIS battery packs and many other common battery packs. Both come standard with an 8 inch cable, but can be customized according to user needs. Only one exposed cable ensures a minimal snag hazard, and incorporates a retention system to prevent the cable from pulling out of the mount. The FURY comes standard with a low battery LED which flashes discretely on the eyepiece of the goggle. The low battery LED is optional on the OPS version of the STORM. The FURY is also available with a hard-mounted cable.
