Abstract:

A new type of optical device called the overlapping monocular system has been conceived to meet the requirement for extremely large instantaneous field of view. This device requires scanning by the observer-instrument combination to achieve 360 degrees azimuth coverage. Stereoscopic vision is achieved in part of the field. The particular instrumentation developed for this program provides unity power vision with variable fields of view as large as 140 degrees horizontal by 90 degrees vertical and variable exit pupil diameters as large as 15 mm. Two such instruments are available for use. In this report, a plan is developed for utilizing this special instrumentation in a field test program which is intended to provide the necessary data for correlation of crew performance with vision system parameters utilized. Tests of the open and closed hatch modes are included only to establish the same performance capability information for existing vehicles. Author
