MSP NVIS support includes Night Vision Goggle (NVG) equipment acquisition, NFC NVG training and maintenance services, and the Hoffman NVG Lighting Conformity Test Kit to ensure aircraft airworthiness. New Laser Armor TM Aviator Glasses, Laser Armor TM Light Interference Filters (LIF) and Laser Armor TM Training will help MSP increase laser strike readiness and prevent possible damage to personnel and equipment.
