Unity vision equipment, such as periscopes and vision blocks, is used in combat vehicles to furnish the vehicle crew with a wide-angle, closed-hatch surveillance capability. The addition of filters to eliminate laser hazards from affecting crewmembers' eyes makes the testing of such filters essential in order to assure their physical and optical integrity. The hazard filters are glass with a thin-film coating and, depending on the application, cemented to polycarbonate or acrylic. This paper presents some preliminary results in the applicability of shearography for flaw detection in thin-film coatings and bonded optical components used in combat vehicle unity vision devices.
