Night vision devices (NVDs) mitigate risks in low visibility operations through image intensification or infrared imaging. However, NVDs create new risks, including a host of human factors problems. The operation of night vision equipment has been associated with several different forms of spatial disorientation. The following pages describe how this disorientation exacerbates the hazards created by ‘brown-out’ landings that occur when visibility is reduced by airborne particles, typically… Expand

TLDR
An analysis of incident and accident data is used to identify requirements for the successful deployment of night vision equipment and argues that these applications must be integrated more closely with existing navigational systems. Expand
Detection of motion-defined form under simulated night vision conditions
The influence of Night Vision Goggle-produced noise on the perception of motion-defined form was investigated using synthetic imagery and standard psychophysical procedures. Synthetic image sequencesExpand
