the Army supply system can be viewed at 
"http://www-rucker.army.mil/atb/nvd/nvdb.htm".
7.5.2.  If Army issued supplemental lighting items are not 
available, items which pass the degradation evaluation IAW 
Paragraph 7.5.4. are authorized.
7.5.3.  The specific supplemental lighting configurations 
authorized by unit commanders must be defined in the unit SOP.  
Unit commanders must ensure crewmembers receive instruction in the 
use of authorized supplemental lighting to include flashlight 
filters.  This requirement may be met as part of NVG Readiness 
Level (RL) progression if addressed in the unit standardization 
SOP.  As a minimum, the following training must be conducted and 
evaluated.
7.5.3.1.  Operation and use of lighting.
7.5.3.2.  Demonstrate degradation of NVG performance caused by 
noncompatible supplemental lighting.
...................NOTE...................
....Lights that have not passed the supplemental test
....described below will not be used in the cockpit/pilot
....stations except for ground operations.  These lights
....may be used in the cargo/passenger compartment of UH-1,
....UH-60, OH-58A/C, or CH-47 aircraft at the discretion
....of the Pilot in Command (PC).
7.5.4.  Supplemental lighting degradation evaluation -
7.5.4.1.  At night, in an aircraft located in an area of low 
ambient light (landing zone, etc), with interior lighting set for 
NVG operations, and with ANVIS prepared for use, position a 
reflective material (map sheet, note card, vinyl checklist, etc.) 
approximately 12 to 18 inches from the eyes.
7.5.4.2.  Shine the supplemental light onto the material.  With 
the unaided eye, look at the resultant reflection cast on the 
windscreen.
7.5.4.3.  Observe this same reflection through the ANVIS.  An 
acceptable supplemental light source will allow NVG aided vision 
through the reflection.  The reflection may even disappear.
7.5.4.4.  If the reflection, glare, or stray light interferes with 
the ANVIS aided vision of any crewmember the light source is 
unacceptable.
7.6.  Laser pointers -
7.6.1.  Guidance regarding hazards associated with tactical laser 
pointers is available from the U.S. Army Center for Health Promotion 
and Preventive Medicine, DSN 584-3932 or (410)436-3932;

...................WARNING...................
....Users should be aware that most lasers can
....permanently or temporarily degrade the ANVIS
....performance if used improperly.
...................WARNING...................
....Any laser that is not a Class 1 Laser device
....has the potential to cause permanent eye damage.
7.6.2.  Prior to conducting operations using authorized lasers 
unit commanders must authorize the use of, and include procedures 
for, the use of laser pointers during ANVIS missions in the unit 
SOP.
7.6.3.  Any Class 1 Near-Infrared (Near-IR) laser is acceptable 
for use in the cockpits or cargo compartments of Army helicopters, 
to include the Infrared Aiming Light (AN/PAQ-4 Series, 830-860 
nanometers).  These lights provide reasonable range performance 
with little to no degradation of the ANVIS performance when 
directed through the helicopter windscreen.
7.6.4.  At the discretion of the PC, lasers other than Class 1 
Near-IR may be used in the cargo/passenger compartment of UH-1, 
UH-60, CH-47, or OH-58A/C aircraft IAW the Unit SOP.  The PC will
