PAVE LOW III: interior lighting reconfiguration for night lighting and night vision goggle compatibility



PAVE LOW III: interior lighting reconfiguration for night lighting and night vision goggle compatibility



Aviation, Space, and Environmental Medicine 53(12): 1162-1165



The PAVE LOW III aircraft is a modified HH-53H helicopter that has a low altitude--below 30.48 m (100 ft)--night/day rescue mission. The desired night flying configuration is for the pilot to wear night vision goggles (NVGs) to fly the aircraft while the copilot, without NVGs, observes the video display and monitors the aircraft instruments. The problems of NVG incompatibility in the cockpit were successfully countered using several light control techniques. The light control modifications were evaluated on the ground in the PAVE LOW III helicopter at Kirtland AFB in April, 1980, by PAVE LOW instructor pilots. The evaluation results were extremely positive.
