Paper Abstract

The historical background, of U.S. Army individual night vision, goggles is briefly traced and the current status is summarized, leading to the conclusion that a dramatic reduction in unit cost is essential for maximum military utilization of such devices. System. requirements are outlined for low cost night vision goggles. A. current development program is described in which low cost is achieved by use of one image intensifier tube, by extensive use of injection molded aspheric plastic optical elements and by molded Plastic mechanical components. System concepts and design. considerations are presented.
