Aero Dynamix
Balanced Cockpit Solutions for Night Vision
F
ounded in 1994, Aero Dyna-
mix, Inc. (ADI) is the industry
leader and principle innovator
of “INTEGRATED” Night Vision
Instrument Systems (NVIS) solutions
for both commercial and military air-
craft. Focused on quality, service and
customer satisfaction, ADI special-
izes in complete cockpit modifications
designed to achieve a “BALANCED
SOLUTION” that is optimized for
both NVIS and daylight readability
performance. To date, Aero Dynamix,
has earned 25 multi-ship Supplemen-
tal Type Certificates (STCs) on 36 dif-
ferent aircraft model types in addition
to three EASA validations. ADI has
completed over 500 cockpit modifica-
tions without certification issues. Each
civil aircraft modified by ADI is fully
certified and STC’d by the FAA, thus
meeting or exceeding all regulatory
standards.
Product offerings include Edge Lit
Panels (ELPs), NVIS panel overlays,
NVIS instrument modifications and
repairs for a wide range of avionics
manufacturers. ADI is also a stock-
ing distributor for L-3 Night Vision
Goggles (NVGs) and certification
repair station for L-3 and ITT NVGs,
offering 48-hour turnaround time
on NVG re-certification. ADI cur-
rently employs approximately 100
full-time night vision professionals
who all work at one location in a new
23,200-square-foot facility located in
Euless, Texas that incorporates the
very latest in high-tech manufactur-
ing technology and equipment. At
its new facility, ADI has complete
manufacturing and instrument modi-
fication/repair capabilities that are all
accomplished to strict adherence to
the guidelines established by the FAA
and its Quality Assurance Depart-
ment. ADI recently achieved internal
certification under MIL-DTL-7788G
for Edge Lit Panel manufacturing and
is pursuing QPL-7788 certification for
its ELP products.

Aero Dynamix, Inc. is a certified
FAA/EASA avionics repair station
(C73R723N & EASA.145.6260) with
Part Manufacturing Approval (PMA)
for thousands of NVIS products.
Since avionics equipment oftentimes
require internal light source modifica-
tions in order to achieve NVIS com-
patibility and performance without
sacrificing daylight readability, ADI
works closely with avionics and equip-
ment OEMs such as Garmin, Honey-
well and Aspen Avionics, just to name
a few, to achieve maximum lighting
performance in such a manner to
ensure the OEM warranty service is
maintained. All assembly, modifica-
tion and repairs are performed in-
house and are subject to a thorough
and comprehensive FAA/QA process
to ensure both physical appearance
and technical performance of each
and every product going out the door.
ADI has full-time Engineering and
Research & Development depart-
ments with a complete in-house NVG
test lab, which includes a Radio Spec-
trometer for measuring light trans-
missions. ADI also has an in-house
FAA certification team that includes a
Designated Engineering Representa-
tive (DER), Designated Airworthiness
Representative (DAR) and a full-time
NVG qualified DER pilot.
ELPs and NVIS Overlays are man-
ufactured in-house with capabilities
that include water cutting, Computer
Numerical Control (CNC) machining,
silk screen, laser marking, a robotics
aided paint facility, and a Coordinate
Measuring Machine (CMM), which
allows ADI to perform automated
parts inspections (first article inspec-
tions) on manufactured products.
Dennis Trout, General Manager of
Aero Dynamix, states: “As the indus-
try leader, we will continue to grow
and support our customers in a way
that no other company can.” Trout
also stresses that crew safety, mission
performance and total life-cycle sup-
port to the customer is crucial to and
entrenched within the Aero Dynamix
brand and company culture.
