Development of NVG compatible Lighting and helo visual landing aids for use onboard ships.


Naval ships that operate helicopter need visual landing aids that enable the pilots for safe operation of the helicopters. In addition, for operation at night, standard and night vision goggle (NVG) compatible lighting and landing aids are required to ensure secrecy of flight operations without compromising safety. Presently these systems are imported. With a large number of ships with helicopters being built for Indian Navy and Coast Guard, indigenous availability of few, if not all components of the helicopter deck lighting and visual landing aids will reduce dependence on foreign manufacturers.
