The Marine Corps is interested in procuring a clip-on Night Vision Magnification Device (NVMD) to satisfy the need to see targets at the maximum effective range of its weapons.

The Ministry of Defence, like all ministries, is being subjected to the current financial squeeze, but due to the priorities of missions in Afghanistan, they were able to bring the order for the goggles forward. There are, at present, about 10,000 British troops based in Afghanistan. The order will mean that every British soldier in Afghanistan will now have access to these new glasses, with the remainder being used to train up the next batch of troops getting ready for deployment. The new Generation Three glasses are a “significant” improvement over the older Generation Two goggles said ITT – the firm making the night-vision equipment.

Dean Black, a retired lieutenant colonel in the air force and former CH-146 Griffon helicopter pilot, said Thursday the goggles came into use in the 1990s and are now considered essential. They are not only indispensable to air crew, but to people on the ground who depend on the ability of the helicopters to come and help them, he said. It means the helicopters can operate 24/7 and in deteriorating conditions. It turns night into day, albeit all in a green colour, but it really brightens things up. Mr. Black, now executive director of the Air Force Association of Canada, said wearing the goggles never caused him much trouble, though he found himself getting more tired, more quickly than normal. Some others did suffer considerable pain, however, including one female Griffon officer whom he recalls being grounded because of it.
