The Royal Danish Air Force (RDAF) has conducted the first operational flight of the night vision cueing and display / aviator’s night vision imaging system (NVCD/ANVIS) in an F-16 MLU M5 configuration aircraft.

The operational flight of NVCD/ANVIS, developed by Vision Systems International (VSI), was conducted as part of Operation Unified Protector in Libya.

The NVCD/ANVIS, based on ANVIS-F4949 night vision goggles (NVGs), is an additional capability to the joint helmet-mounted cueing system (JHMCS) to allow the cueing of weapons and sensors at night.

VSI president Drew Brugal said the system had been validated and matured to successfully execute air-to-air and air-to-ground tactical missions at night.

The RDAF are participating in the UN enforcement of the no fly zone in Libya.
