Abstract : The test operations procedure (TOP) delineates general test and specific subtest procedures required to measure the technical performance of Night Vision Goggles (NVG). Comparison of test results with criteria and technical specifications permits evaluation of their suitability for an intended use. The NVG is a self-contained, night vision viewing system worn on your head or hand-held. It provides the operator with improved night vision capabilities using available light from the sky allowing the operator to see and move in the night and perform such manual tasks as map reading, vehicle maintenance, short- range surveillance, etc. The NVG is used only at night. It is not used as a substitute for daytime vision. This TOP is limited to 22 tests which are applicable only to night vision goggles. The ability to perform radio tasks, map reading, and drive cross-country while wearing the goggles will also be investigated.
