Abstract : The aim of this Lecture Series is to provide the aeromedical specialist with a thorough understanding of the physiology of the visual system with particular concentration on the impact of the environment presented during night tactical air operations. Methods to preserve, protect or enhance unaided night vision will be discussed. Information concerning visual performances with electro-optic devices derived from aeromedical research and field experiences will be detailed to provide the medical specialists, the engineers end operational pilots with appropriate understanding of these increasingly common operational tools. This Lecture Series, sponsored by the Aerospace Medical Panel of AGARD, has been implemented by the Consultant and Exchange Programme.
