Abstract:

The increasing application of electro-optical devices such as night vision goggles as aids in night flight demands a prerequisite evaluation of the optical quality and the visual detection thresholds of those devices when they operate through the aircraft windscreen. This report presents an analysis of the spectral transmission characteristics from 360 to 1080 nm spectral range of sixteen Army aircraft windscreen samples. The samples were from six fixed wing and seven rotary wing aircraft windscreens.
