Abstract:

To reduce problems with safety, logistics, and evaluate feedback inherent in training at night, the Army Research Institute ARI has developed experimental light-attenuating devices LADs, which simulate visual conditions of night during the day. Single-density or bidensity lenses can be fitted to various existing facemasks and used to conduct certain simulated night-training operations during the day, with little reduction in effectiveness.
