Bedford, TX -- REBTECH, one the first civil and military aviation night vision lighting providers in the world, has announced the initial night vision goggle (NVG) compatible conversion of an AS350B3e recently acquired by the City of Austin Police Department (APD).  The addition of this aircraft to the APD Air Support Unit will allow expanded critical support roles such as external load fire suppression, night vision goggle operations, increased passenger and payload capabilities, and other safety enhanced missions.
