6 May 2009 Micro-environment condensation-induced obscuration on optics
Author Affiliations +
Rubber boots used on optical eye-pieces to control stray illumination from optics and displays used in the battlefield environment also creates a micro-environment where tear evaporation can induce condensation on eye-piece optics that obscures object or target recognition. The author presents condensation models to show the condition occurs under a broader range of conditions than previously recognized. Techniques are explained to control the problem.
