Abstract : This AGARDograph presents a general summary of suggested Night Vision Goggle (NVG) testing methods and should be used as a framework for developing airborne and laboratory based experiments to evaluate equipment. The objective of this document is to provide an inventory of rules, standards, procedures, methods and means needed to test and evaluate night vision systems. In order to meet its objective, the scope of this AGARDograph is limited to the testing of night vision devices based on image intensification technology for use in rotorcraft. This AGARDograph includes sections covering the basic theory of the systems in use today, human vision and its relationship to the technology, general flight test methodology and an inventory of flight test techniques from NATO countries.
