Abstract:

MODERN WARFARE PRESENTS A RISK OF LASER EYE DAMAGE, EITHER ACCIDENTAL OR FROM DELIBERATE ENEMY ACTION. WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP COMPUTER MODELS WHICH WILL ALLOW US TO SIMULATE SHORT PULSE LASER GENERATED VISION LOSS. THESE MODELS WILL BE CHECKED AGAINST EXPERIMENTAL DATA AND ADJUSTED AS NECESSARY. AS THEY ARE PERFECTED, THEY WILL INCREASE THE USEFUL AMOUNT OF DATA FROM ANIMAL STUDIES BY EXTRAPOLATION. TWO TYPES OF MODELS WILL BE DEVELOPED. ONE WILL MODEL ACUITY. THE OTHER WILL MODEL ACTUAL VEP OUTPUT. BOTH WILL USE A SIMULATED RETINA WITH A HEXAGONAL TESSELLATION, AND MODEL WITH ACTUAL DATA USED IN PAST VEP ANIMAL STUDIES.
