Casualty reports from Southeast Asia indicate a need for a small fragment protective eye shield which will not interfere with the normal duties of the user. Commercially available eye goggles which are in accordance with Federal Specification FSN 4240-052-3776 were evaluated and found to provide inadequate ballistic protection. A polycarbonate eye shield which can be easily attached to the M-1 steel helmet was designed and found acceptable in evaluation reports from Vietnam. Ballistic data on the shield and construction details are given in this report.
