7026NIGHT WARFARE, EYEGLASSES, EFFECTIVENESS, NIGHT VISION, COMBAT SURVEILLANCE, SPECIFICATIONS, SIMULATORS, TEST METHODS, RELIABILITYGOGGLES, NIGHT VISION, NIGHT DRIVINGThe present report addresses the overall utility of the night vision goggles. Military effectiveness of the goggles over the unaided eye for night driving, close-order operations, patrol, and combat surveillance was evaluated by field experimentation. Identification of optical, electro-optical, and human-related factors was done through laboratory simulation and bench-test evaluations. Alternative approaches, as well as electro-optical specifications for individual night vision aides, were considered and evaluated. The 40 degrees FOV Night Vision Goggles provide a dual passive-active, open-hatch, night-driving capability for armored vehicles. Author Modified Abstract
