The “Rhino” Mount Arm, from Norotos, is the standard issue USGI articulating NVG helmet mount. It places the night vision device in front of the operator’s eyes and can be pivoted up over the helmet into a stowed position when NVGs are not required. The Rhino Mount got its nickname from its appearance when it is flipped over the helmet. This mount features fore/aft travel and tilt adjustment.
The Rhino Mount attaches to any helmet shroud that has a universal interface such as the standard MICH and PASGT shrouds, the OpsCore VAS Shroud, Wilcox L4 One Hole Shroud, and the Norotos Universal Shroud. The Rhino will accept any night vision device or adapter with a standard bayonet interface. It has an auto shut-off feature that will turn off the night vision device when it is flipped up over the helmet so the lit-up green glow from the eye piece lens does not show down-range. The arm articulates with a “force to overcome” motion meaning the user simply pushes the device upward or down into position.
