Abstract:

Northrop Grumman has recently completed work as part of the Vision Science and Personnel Susceptibility Integrated Product Team of the Air Force Research Laboratory, Human Effectiveness Directorate, Directed Energy Bioeffects Division, Optical Radiation Branch AFRLRHDO. This report satisfies the requirement for a final report at the end of the period of performance of this work. This effort provided research support to understand vision science and human performance based on vision so as to predict the effects of lasers on vision and human performance. The types of activities included, but were not limited to, basic research into relevant aspect of visual performance and visual adaptation, field and laboratory measurements of laser glare and flashblindness effects, and development and validation of optical safety and effectiveness models. A total of 11 open literature papers, posters and presentations and 13 Technical Reports TRs were completed during the period of performance. The work performed by Northrop Grumman detailed in the report is divided according to project. These projects are Basic Research DazzlerHornet Veiling Glare Cockpit Laser Obscuration Study HAVE STAN Federal Aviation Administration Special Projects and White Papers Dynamic Glare Driver Defeat Multiple Source Glare Effects Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Directorate - Optical Suppression and, Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Directorate - Knowledge Base.
