L3 Series G10
One Hole NVG Mounting Systems for MICH/ACH
The Wilcox L3 G10 One Hole Bracket with Integrated Breakaway Interface, NVG Lanyard, and Universal NVG Mount allows firm attachment to a MICH/ACH helmet drilled with the standard one-hole pattern. This NVG Mounting System is unique in that it provides three modes of operation. The first mode allows the Mount to “break away” from the base under a stressed condition, such as when prompted by interference during fast roping, maritime operations, hard impact or when entering or exiting mobility platforms. Without the Wilcox breakaway feature, the potential for induced neck injury and NVG breakage are increased. The second mode allows the Universal NVG Mount to securely lock the mount to the base. A third mode allows the Breakaway Base to pivot away from the Helmet Bracket by means of a locking bayonet interface when the NVG is not in use, further reducing weight and profile.

2)A Locking Bayonet Interface allows the Breakaway Interface (Assembly 4, 5 & 6) to be dismounted from the Bracket for reduced snag.
3)A Lanyard Interface allows snap-on mounting of the Wilcox NVG Lanyard.
Integrated Breakaway Interface Components (See Above):
4)A NVG Mount Alignment Guide assists the operator in directing the Universal NVG Mount into place while wearing the MICH Helmet.
5) A unique Vertical Height Adjustment Button easily facilitates positioning NVG height up or down with a simple push of the button. No longer is it necessary to manually rotate a thumb screw to perform this function.

Universal NVG Mount Components (See Above):
7)An ergonomically placed Flip Button allows the Mount to “flip up” to a very low profile when stowed. This pivot mechanism is simple and robust by design and will not loosen over time.
8)A sleek, low profile Tilt Adjustment Knob allows for finite tilt adjustment of the NVG by the operator, then lock the position in place with a simple turn of the knob.
9)Two coinciding Fore/Aft Travel Release Buttons provide Fore/Aft NVG travel.
10) An ergonomically placed NVG Release Button allows for one handed release of the NVG.
11) A Magnet Switch is featured to facilitate the “Automatic Function” of the NVG.
