As many of you know, and those of you still in flight school will find out, we place an enormous emphasis on being able to operate tactically at night. In order to do so, we must train heavily in that regime. I was never very happy with Grimes lights or fingerlights. Never mind flying on goggles in a non-NVD compatible cockpit, where you have to essentially turn out every interior cockpit light. I decided to come up with something better. The Night Vision Pen was designed, tested, and is currently being used by graduates of TOPGUN, the Rotary Wing Weapons School, the Electronic Attack Weapons School, LSO School, and many other experienced Naval Aviators across all platforms. By incorporating a small NVD-compatible accessory light into the tip of a pen you are able to have more control over the directionality and use of the light. There is no need to have any other accessory light to see your kneeboard when taking notes or reading your kneeboard card, the light is right there at the ready. While designing the Night Vision Pen, a lanyard loop was added as well to ensure a positive attachment can be achieved with your kneeboard without relying on tape or Velcro which have a tendency to fail. Using a Night Vision Pen helps reduce cockpit FOD possibilities by bringing less items into the cockpit. The pen is secure and you aren't carrying a fingerlight or chem light with you any longer. In addition to using the Night Vision Pen for standard note taking, reading your kneeboard, and looking at your instruments, it is also excellent for giving night flight deck signals for rogering up your weight board before a cat shot, giving your up or down status post arrested landing, as well as HEFOE signals. LSOs will have an easier time writing down the passes as well on those pitch black nights. This thread was started to introduce my product to those who may find it helpful and facilitate any questions you may have about the Night Vision Pen.
