Project MS 14/15 - Amendment to CAO 82.6 regarding NVG maintenance
Project closed 9 October 2014.
The amendment has been completed and the revised CAO 82.6 has been published. NFRM 1412MS has been published.
In December 2011 CAO 82.6 was amended to allow the interchange of the image intesifier tubes between NVG manufactured in the United States (US) in accordance with the US Department of Defense specification known as the "Omnibus IV". This allowed the operators with options in the repair of their NVG that were designated AN/ANVIS 9.
The maintenance requirements however remained the same, limiting the operator to a single supplier. To provide the users of the US sourced NVG with an alternative maintenance provider CAO 82.6 should be amended to allow operators to use a maintenance provider that has been endorsed by one of the two suppliers of NVG to the US Department of Defense, i.e. ITT or L-3.
Amend CAO 82.6 Appendix 3 to allow additional maintenance options for US sourced NVG.
This project was approved by Peter Boyd, EM Standards Division on 6 May 2014.
