Abstract:

The EG and G SY-116A photochromic goggle system was evaluated to delineate any problem areas associated with it before Category III testing. The following features are presented and discussed 1 physical characteristics of the goggle, such as closure time and peak optical density 2 effect of the goggle upon the basic visual functions, such as visual acuity and color vision 3 aircrew ability to visually detect various targets through the goggle 4 comparative flashblindness recovery times for both operative and inoperative goggle situations under day and night conditions, utilizing FOT simulator systems and 5 protection afforded by the goggle from various nuclear environments in terms of safe separation distances.
