Revision Number: B
Sponsor Name: Daniel Flis
Title
Night Vision Goggle (Nvg) Compatible Light Sources
Scope
This ARP covers three common lamp light sources, incandescent, electroluminescent and light emitting diode that, when NVG filtered, can be used to illuminate NVG compatible aerospace crew stations. It is recognized that many other different light sources can also be used for this purpose.<p>This ARP sets forth recommendations for the design of NGV compatible lighting, utilizing these light sources, that will meet the requirements of MIL-L-85762A Lighting, Aircraft, Interior, Night Vision Imaging System (NVIS) Compatible.<p>Although this ARP concentrates on lamp light sources for illumination, the information contained within this ARP may be directly applied to incandescent, electroluminescent and light emitting diode information display devices.<p>This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice recommends certain basic considerations which the design engineer should observe when designing NVG compatible lighting.
Rationale
Need to update the obsolete military references and include LCD's as another NVIS light source.
