The Air Force has developed several aircraft cockpit lighting techniques that will reduce glare, windscreen reflections, improve visibility and are compatible with Night Vision Goggles. These techniques utilize a combination of microencapsulated Electroluminescent lamps, light control film, light filters, and dimmers to control light placement, wavelength, and intensity. These techniques are applicable to military, commercial, and general aviation aircraft.
