Abstract
DESCRIPTIONS OF TESTS USED TO MEASURE VARIOUS ASPECTS OF VISION ARE SCATTERED THROUGHOUT THE LITERATURE OF FIELDS SUCH AS MEDICINE, PHYSIOLOGY, PSYCHOLOGY, HUMAN FACTORS ENGINEERING, OPTICS AND OTHERS. WITH STEADY ADVANCES IN THE COMPLEXITY OF MILITARY SYSTEMS (NOTABLY AIRCRAFT), THE NEED FOR A READILY ACCESSIBLE AND THOROUGH SOURCE OF MATERIAL ON VISION TESTS BECOMES IMPERATIVE. DCS PROPOSES TO CONDUCT A SURVEY OF ALL CURRENT VISION TESTS, BEGINNING WITH AN EXHAUSTIVE LITERATURE SEARCH ON THE SUBJECT. RESULTING DATA WILL BE ORGANIZED BASED ON ARMY FLIGHT REQUIREMENTS AND COMPILED INTO A COMPUTERIZED DATA BASE. WITH THIS ACCOMPLISHED, FLIGHT DOCTORS SCREENING PROSPECTIVE PILOTS AND DESIGN ENGINEERS DEVELOPING COCKPITS WILL HAVE AT THEIR FINGERTIPS THE MOST AUTHORITATIVE AND UP-TO-DATE INFORMATION ON THE TESTING OF HUMAN VISION AVAILABLE.
