Abstract
An eight-day field trial was undertaken at Fort Benning, Georgia, during the period of 27 March to 9 April 2002. Sixteen volunteer regular force infantry soldiers completed simulated day and night target detection tasks in an urban setting while using three different fields of view (95º, 70º, and 40º). System performance was tested on at the McKenna MOUT site in Fort Benning, Georgia with fully and partially exposed targets at near (10 to 30m) and far (31 to 59 m) distances. Goals of this trial included: quantification of the nighttime and daytime target detection performance of systems with different fields of view (95º, 70º, and 40º); and the quantification of daylight target detection and engagement performance of three different field of view day goggles (95º, 70º, and 40º) against normal sight (nominally 185º) during simulated urban engagement scenarios. A number of human factors tests were also administered.
