Night Vision Goggles
NAAA has been closely monitoring the certification process of night vision goggles (NVGs) for use in night agricultural operations. Early in 2013, NAAA employed an online survey to gather information from operators that perform night operations about their acres or hours flown at night; why they use night application; and what their opinion was about NVGs. Those responding reported treating 1.6 million acres and flying 11,737 hours of night application. Eighty four percent of the present night operators were interested in using NVGs if they were approved.
