Transport Canada NVG-LED Project

Hello STAC Members,

In an effort to help represent our Member stakeholders, STAC has joined a Transport Canada (TC) project that will study night vision goggles (NVG), how they impact pilots’ ability to detect red LED lighting, and what this means for tower obstruction lighting systems.

Included below is a preliminary message sent out by the TC project lead, Eduard Alf, as well as a PowerPoint deck that provides more information about the problem, the project and some potential solutions.

If you have any questions about this TC project or if you would like to join a STAC project team dedicated to responding to this issue and any related TC consultations, please contact Nick Kyonka at [email protected]
