The Night Vision Awards are a bi-annual event with ceremonies hosted by Aviation Specialties Unlimited, Night Flight Concepts, Vertical Magazine and Rotorcraft Pro Magazine at ALEA in July and at NightCon later in the year. The purpose of the awards is to promote operational leadership and excellence in the use of night vision, in North America and around the world.
“Last year at ALEA we honoured seven law enforcement units,” said Night Vision Awards emcee Scott Emerine. “Each unit had their own story of how night vision systems helped their unit succeed in catching suspects or saving lives and we feel privileged that we are able to share their stories while raising awareness and honouring them at the same time.”
