Paper Abstract

Recent advances in display technology have made it possible to superimpose color-coded symbology on the images produced by night vision goggles (NVGs). The resulting color mixture shifts the symbology's hue and saturation, which can impede recognition of the color code. We are developing luminance-contrast specifications for color-coded NVG symbology to ensure accurate color recognition.
