Abstract:

This study compares operator target detection performance while wearing red, yellow and gray sunglass lenses and unaided viewing. A research task was performed outdoors using survival orange targets located at ranges of 1600 feet to 4500 feet from the subjects. No statistically significant performance differences were obtained although subjectively the operators preferred the yellow lenses over the gray sunglasses and unfiltered conditions.
