Night Vision

Matt Black Systems offers a comprehensive service for the design and manufacture of bespoke NVIS (Night Vision Imaging Systems) and NVG (Night Vision Goggle) compatible solutions for new build projects and modification/upgrade programs.

The reason that our clients choose us is that we deliver right first time, on time results on all of our projects. Our culture of innovation has a proven track record in providing blue chip companies with NVG solutions.

Unique to our industry, we offer a free advisory service and after sales support to our clients using our extensive knowledge to ensure that the end product complies with all applicable standards and regulations, including MIL specifications.

This makes us a more comprehensive choice than other night vision manufacturers.

Our range of capabilities encompasses the design and supply of NVIS lit bezels, bridges and pillar lamps to transform your existing instrumentation.

Additionally we can modify non-NVG panels to become NVG compatible, without the need for external additional lighting.

All of our products are manufactured to ISO9001:2015 and either comply with or surpass both international and customer standards. 

We have night vision products in service on the Chinook and Apache helicopters, the C130 Hercules and the E2C Hawkeye, as well as many other aerospace and training applications.
