The AB Nightvision STORM Nightvision Mount is an aviation style ball detent mount that fits into a standard helmet NVG shroud. Ball detent systems offer a firm locking mechanism with built in breakaway on impact. They are self powered through a LEMO connector so nightvision goggles are automatically powered off when flipped up, and powered on when flipped down.
Ball detent style systems such as the TNVC Artemis allow for lower profile stowage than a standard dovetail system.
Designed for strength. Through careful, innovative design, we have been able to reduce weight of our mounts while increasing strength and adding features, all without increasing the cost. The entire frame of each mount is made from 7075-T651 aluminum alloy, which is 36% stronger than common 1018 steel, and 7X stronger than Delrin plastic, another common mount material. Made from the same rigid material, the front body frames won’t flex and spring like a plastic mount, which means the NVG will be much more secure. As well, the design incorporates retention features, located above and below the NVG ball-head, to securely retain the NVG during jumps, bumps, and parachute openings. Users can remove and install the NVG easily without worrying about it coming out when performing aggressive maneuvers.
Robust, easily manipulated controls. These mounts have controls that will be familiar to anyone who has used an ANVIS style mount before. When the NVG is in the flipped-down position, the mount allows users to adjust for the perfect placement in relation to their eyes. When the NVG is flipped up, power is automatically cut off, and the goggle is held securely out of the way until needed. CNC machining on STORM & FURY mounts ensures strict tolerances for rock-solid lock-up and reliable function. They feature a ball-detent Jackscrew for precise vertical adjustment that won’t change position with vibrations or use. The vertical travel spans 1.25 inches and can be easily adjusted while wearing gloves.
Redundant power delivery for enhanced reliability. Both STORM & FURY work with the standard 4-pin LEMO style connectors found on the ANVIS battery packs and many other common battery packs. Both come standard with an 8 inch cable, but can be customized according to user needs. Only one exposed cable ensures a minimal snag hazard, and incorporates a retention system to prevent the cable from pulling out of the mount. The FURY comes standard with a low battery LED which flashes discretely on the eyepiece of the goggle. The low battery LED is optional on the OPS version of the STORM. The FURY is also available with a hard-mounted cable.
