Abstract : A night target detection/recognition test was developed to follow a daylight air reconnaissance test. The night flights were flown in a modified OH-58 helicopter about 30 meters above ground level by pilots trained to use night vision goggles. Detection/recognition scores and ranges are compared among day flights, night flights with no visual aids for the copilot-observers and night flights with observations aided by night vision goggles. User comments on the total system are reported in some detail. (Modified author abstract)
