Paper Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to describe the Standard for Passive, Hand-Held Night Vision Devices that has been developed at the National Bureau of Standards under a project sponsored by the Law Enforcement Standards Laboratory of NBS, which is financed by the National Institute of Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice of the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration of the Department of Justice. The Standard is intended for use by law enforcement agencies in procurement of night vision equipment. The Standard is now undergoing review prior to promulgation. Because of the size of the complete standard, it will not be possible to describe it in detail. What is intended is to mention the philosophy behind the standard, describe briefly the test procedures, and mention the performance requirements.
