Abstract:

The intensive flash resulting upon detonation of a thermo-nuclear device can cause temporary or permanent blindness in an observer who has no eye protection, even when the observer is sufficiently distant from the explosion to survive the other effects of the blast. It is imperative that air crews be provided with a means for guarding against flash blindness, which can occur at great distances, and which can seriously affect the ability of a crew to properly operate its aircraft.
