Aerial Firefighting

ASU | NVG Aerial Firefighting initiatives


As the pioneer in next generation night vision goggles for firefighting, ASU's superior visual acuity lets you see clear as day to land, refill suppressant, and travel to and from the fire at night.

Now you can make the other 10 hours of the day your most effective. Having built relationships with a number of aerial firefighters, we are confident that we can tailor a package to meet your night flying needs.
