AKA II HELMET MOUNT
Rugged adaptability unites with long-lasting stable durability to deliver the AKA II Helmet Mount equipped with available interchangeable sockets permitting rapid conversion between HORN and DOVETAIL style NVGs. Accelerated tolerance control enabled through a commitment to engineering elegance secured through manufacturing precision maintains exceptionally stable longevity in a helmet mount.
While stable and rugged, the AKA II ensures a comfortable wear through Vertical, Tilt, Fore/Aft-Eye-Relief Adjustment maximizing a custom-fit user experience. The AKA II enhances safety through right eye/left eye viewing and stowage enabling continual peripheral viewing of NVG system in expanding user knowledge of potential hazards.
Push Button Deploy/Stow Release ensures that the AKA II remains engaged even through increasingly high velocity situations, while smooth and quiet upon engagement. Safe and easy tactile differentials on all operating levers, knobs, and buttons ensure a ruggedly durable flexibility, including NVG safety release rotating knob or release button (dependent on socket).
The AKA II supplies an ideal match between durable, enduring Anti-Wobble stability in a platform that ensures pronounced flexibility in transitioning between HORN and DOVETAIL style NVGs. In so doing, comfort of wear and longevity in performance contribute to a product resulting from extensive engineering combined with vast experience.
- Ergonomically Optimized Vertical, Tilt, and Fore/Aft-Eye-Relief Adjustment Levers for a custom-fit user experience
- NVG Safety Release Rotating Knob OR NVG Safety Release Button (dependent on socket)
- Push Button Deploy/Stow Release enables single-handed smooth & quiet NVG flip-up/flip-down

Easily convert your DOVETAIL (PVS-15/18/21/31) style helmet mount into HORN (PVS-7/14) style readiness with Quick-Change Sockets. A simple turn and slide opens a new space of possibilities for select Norotos helmet mounts including the AKA II (#1840010), AKA II HYPER (#1940010), INVG HYPER (#1920010), and Lo-Sto Force-to-Overcome (#1962010) and Push Button (#1960010), all becoming HORN compatible.
The Universal Shroud is unparalleled in its commitment providing unwavering durable stability within a helmet shroud in enhancing user experience and field capacity, while compatible with nearly all helmets with 1 or 3 holes, or no holes with optional Strap Assembly. Compatible Helmet Types are not limited to, but include, MICH, ACH, CVC, and PASGT, in addition to non-ballistic helmet types such as PROTECH.
In contrast to simply another plastic or aluminum molded NVG holding device—the Universal Shroud exhibits the ultimate in Anti-Wobble design—enhancing safety-ensuring wearability while extending field life. This precision-machined interface manufactured from high-strength, corrosion-resistant anodized aluminum alloy specifically designed for mold integration within the high-strength non-metallic shell optimizes impact resistance even when subjected to severe, direct-impact strikes.
All hardware, including slides, fasteners, springs, and other metallic hardware is selected and tested to withstand through the harshest environmental conditions. The precision machining of the interface incorporated with shock absorbent pads ensures a continuous Anti-Wobble fit enduring through natural or accelerated environmental wear (though proper maintenance is necessary to avoid wear caused by salt-water crystallization, sand, or dirt build-up).
Contributing to the reduction of undesired NVG-to-helmet wobble, the Universal Shroud’s stability management system begins at the rear of the shroud where a gasket affixed to the unique curvature of the shroud creates a harmonious, self-stabilizing compression effect. Meanwhile, the front of the shroud features four high-endurance shock absorbers further enhancing helmet mount and NVG stability.
The elegantly engineered tether plug front attached to the Universal Shroud reduces the possibility of NVG damage through accidental drop or disengagement from helmet mount, yet automatically releases when snagged or subjected to deliberate user release.
Meeting or exceeding military specifications, the Universal Shroud raises the standard in stable longevity for night vision support hardware exhibiting exceedingly high strength endurance resulting in the most sophisticated tolerance-controlled shroud in today’s market. Interfacing with Norotos’ Anti-Wobble optimized Helmet Mounts extends total system longevity while ascending beyond former stability and performance benchmarks.
