A survey of the red lighting installations aboard the USS RANDOLPH was conducted to determine the functions of red illumination and the efficiency of the illumination to carry out the desired functions. There are two kinds of night operations for which red lighting is required a aircraft handling and flying, and b navigation of the ship. In both operations, the functions of red light are to expedite dark adaptation and to protect it against deterioration by white light.
