Abstract:

A night target detectionrecognition test was developed to follow a daylight air reconnaissance test. The night flights were flown in a modified OH-58 helicopter about 30 meters above ground level by pilots trained to use night vision goggles. Detectionrecognition scores and ranges are compared among day flights, night flights with no visual aids for the copilot-observers and night flights with observations aided by night vision goggles. User comments on the total system are reported in some detail. Modified author abstract
