Abstract : The requirements to assess the compatibility of aircraft cockpit lighting with night vision goggles (NVGs) are defined in MIL-L-85762A, Lighting, Aircraft, Interior, Night Vision Imaging System (NVIS) Compatible. However, the procedures specified to evaluate cockpit lighting are primarily specific to the laboratory environment, with only a few assessments specific to the field environment. This report describes the procedures used by Armstrong Laboratory's Aircrew Training Research Division (AL/HRA) to conduct a field evaluation of aircraft cockpit lighting. The evaluation procedures are divided into Planning, Evaluation Preparation, Assessment Procedures, and Results. This report can also be used as a guideline for other organizations that need to conduct NVG-compatible cockpit lighting evaluations.
