Paper Abstract

Bandpass filters using absorptive materials were developed to filter the incandescent light sources commonly found in crewstations to provide lighting compatible with Night Vision Imaging Systems (NVIS). A discussion on how NVIS operate provides insight into the rationale behind the military specification for NVIS compatible lighting; the radiance and color of NVIS compatible lighting is also examined. To achieve the desired results, a filter designer will find a balance between four different interdependent parameters. Finally, recent developments in NVIS filter technology are examined to determine current trends.
