Paper Abstract

Technology is advancing to the point where night vision goggle designs being developed have wider fields of view to help achieve an increase in situational awareness. The appropriate diopter setting for the eyepiece of these goggles needed to be determined. Aircrew members were surveyed to determine the range of diopter settings they were using. In order to determine what fixed setting would work the best, two diopter settings were chosen (-1.0 and -0.5) to preset aircrew members' goggles. The aircrew flew with these presettings and then filled out a 14-question survey about the diopter settings.
