Transaero, ITT sign NVG distribution agreement

3rd August 2011 - 08:01 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Transaero Inc. and ITT Corporation are pleased to announce the signing of a domestic distributor agreement on July 22, 2011. Through this agreement, Transaero will inventory, market and sell ITT's F4949 Aviator Night Vision Imaging System throughout the United States. Additionally, Transaero will provide technical support, training and maintenance of the F4949 System to maximize customer benefits and usability. Our partnership will offer the highest technology night vision equipment (Generation III) and the best price and service in the industry. This arrangement will provide the market with service for their domestic NVG needs today and into the future.

ITT Industries Night Vision is the world's leading producer of Generation (Gen) III night vision devices. First developed by ITT in 1992, the F4949 night vision system continually has improved and is now designated the AN/AVS-9(V) by the US Government. The F4949 System features Generation III tube performance offering high resolution, high gain, photoresponse to near infrared and exceptional reliability. Helmet mount configurations designed for fixed-wing and rotary-wing applications, adapting to most aviator helmets (US HGU-55/P, HGU-56/P, HGU-84/P, SPH-5). A low-profile battery pack improves aviator head mobility and increases battery life. Other features include flip-up/flip-down capability, simple binocular attachment, individual interpupillary adjustment, tilt, vertical, and fore-aft adjustments to fit all aviators.
