Abstract:

The objective of the effort was to investigate materials and techniques for applying antireflectance coatings having the properties of good adhesion and scratch resistance to acrylic plastics. The acrylic plastic used in helicopter windshields has a high degree of reflectivity of the impinging suns light rays. This is a major threat to helicopter survivability since these rays are readily observed by enemy ground personnel.
