Kopp Glass Announces New Virtual Catalog for NVIS Filter Solutions

Kopp Glass, Inc. releases a new virtual catalog of glass specifications for the Night Vision Imaging System (NVIS) compatible filter glass product line and Infrared (IR) Transmitting filter solutions including important technical information to support LED innovation in aerospace and defense lighting applications.   When utilizing Night Vision Imaging Systems (NVIS) it is imperative that all lighting within the field of view be compatible.

Kopp provides filter glass solutions designed to ensure compatible lighting across a broad range of applications, including:

·         Crew station illumination

·         Exterior aircraft lighting

·         Handheld or portable lighting

·         Vehicular and convey lighting

·         Airfield, heliport and other covert ground lighting

Color uniformity is critical for NVIS compatible lighting environments. If the color is not uniform it can cause undesired distractions and color saturation can lead to eye fatigue. MIL-STD-3009 specifies the acceptable color parameters and NVIS radiance requirements for various NVIS lighting applications. However, within the MIL-STD-3009 acceptable color circles, the color will appear varied. For this reason Kopp has engineered its product line to meet narrowed ranges within the acceptable color specifications resulting in a superior filter product line with consistent and uniform spectral properties.
