Abstract:

Mobility and compatability tests of the ANPVS-5 night vision goggles for infantry applications were conducted during August 1974 at Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD. Daylight observations of static relationships between the goggles and selected clothingequipment ensembles were made. In addition, field observations, attitudinal measures and obstacle times are reported for 12 soldiers performing with the goggles at night, in combat ensemble over a 500- meter assault course. Recommendations for improvement of goggle design and further research are provided.
