Abstract
Although the superiority of red lighting over white in terms of subsequent dark adaptation is well-documented, the operational significance of this superiority is difficult to quantify. More operationally relevant measures are required in order for the user to evaluate the relative advantages and disadvantages of each type of lighting. The present study provides data showing the advantage of red pre-adaptation in terms of visual detection range superiority for simulated-ship targets.
