Im looking at it with a positive disposition … I want to make certain we make a good choice, he told the Star in an interview. Questions about the safety of night operationsand the possible advantages of night-vision goggles were raised by the midnight crash of an ORNGE helicopter in Moosonee on May 31 that killed two pilots and two paramedics. Investigators have so far ruled out mechanical failure as a cause of the crash. One possibility is controlled flight into terrain, a situation in which pilots inadvertently fly into the ground, usually in conditions of poor visibility or darkness. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit <a href='http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2013/07/20/ornge_considers_nightvision_goggles_for_its_aircraft.html' >http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2013/07/20/ornge_considers_nightvision_goggles_for_its_aircraft.html</a>

The effects can be debilitating for some, said Patrick Neary, a kinesiology professor at the University of Regina who has led much of the Canadian research. The hazard has been identified in other countries, too, with some pilots actually grounded because of the cervical strain. Talking to some individuals, I know they have problems sleeping because of this, he said in interview Thursday. Night-vision goggles, which amplify available light thousands of times and display images in green on built-in screens, have become standard issue throughout the armed forces, used by infantry soldiers for low-light operations as well as air force personnel. They contribute to a total weight with the helicopter pilots helmet of about 3.6 kilograms, said Prof. Neary. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit <a href='http://news.nationalpost.com/2012/01/05/night-vision-goggles-causing-neck-problems-in-military-pilots/' >http://news.nationalpost.com/2012/01/05/night-vision-goggles-causing-neck-problems-in-military-pilots/</a>

The Night Vision frames are made of titanium and over-moulded with an anti-slip elastomer, so theyre light, flexible around the temple area and the height of driving chic. As they are specifically designed to be worn under a helmet, they make a lot of sense for motorcycle riding too. The frames are available in both Wide and Panorama, and the pale yellow lenses offer constant clear, sharp vision with a very high light transmission rate in order to contrast dark blue and green surroundings without changing color perception. The special ophthalmic lenses are shatter-resistant, provide complete UV-A and UV-B protection, and offer an anti-reflective treatment, which reduces glare and offers more accurate sight from dusk to dawn. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit <a href='http://www.gizmag.com/tag-heuer-night-vision-eyeglasses-for-safer-driving/9761/' >http://www.gizmag.com/tag-heuer-night-vision-eyeglasses-for-safer-driving/9761/</a>
