Abstract : Night vision goggles (NVGs) have been employed in a variety of aircraft for over 20 years; however, only recently has their application begun in fighter/attack aircraft. Research accomplished by the Night Vision Programs Office at the Aircrew Training Research Division of the USAF Armstrong Laboratory demonstrated the loss of NVG performance resulting from improper goggle adjustments. This report describes correct adjustment procedures for the CATS EYES NVG system currently being used by USAF, USN, and USMC fighter/attack pilots. The procedures described were developed so aircrews could take advantage of the adjustments available on the NVGs. Additionally, image descriptions are given to help aircrews evaluate NVG performance. Information on the necessary equipment/space needed for proper evaluation is also included....
