Abstract:

THE PROPOSED NIGHT VISION GOGGLES "EAGLE EYE", DEVELOPED BY NIGHT VISION CORPORATION WEIGHT UNDER 500 GRAMS, AND ARE HELMET MOUNTED CLOSE TO THE FACE, PROVIDING MAXIMUM FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT WHILE GREATLY ATTENUATION VIBRATION. THE CENTER OF GRAVITY IS A MERE 18 MM IN FRONT OF EYES, MAKING THEM EJECTION-SAFE. "EAGLE EYE" NVG'S EMPLOY A UNIQUE FOLDED OPTICAL PATH INCORPORATING A PROPRIETARY LENS SYSTEM AND SPECIAL FIBER OPTICS TO KEEP THEM COMPACT. THIS ENABLES THE GEN III IMAGE INTENSIFIERS TO BE SET BACK AND TO THE SIDE OF THE EYE AND INTO THE COMBINING GLASSES WHICH ARE SET IN FRONT OF THE EYES. PERIPHERAL FOV IS 120 DEG H X 110 DEG V. THE OPTICAL PORT FOR HEAD-UP DISPLAY IMAGERY INJECTION IS INCORPORATED INTO THE OPTICAL SYSTEM. THE PROPOSED ENHANCEMENTS TO BE UNDERTAKEN: INTEGRATING THE NVG WITH HGU-55P HELMET AND MAKING THEM COMPATIBLE WITH MBU-12P, MBU-5P, AND NEW "HALP" OXYGEN MASKS. IN ADDITION, FURTHER WEIGHT REDUCTION WILL BE INVESTIGATED BY REDESIGNING SELECTED OPTICAL GLASS COMPONENTS AND REPLACING THEM WITH PLASTIC ELEMENTS.
