equipaggiamento per elmetto
Explanation: Non credo che mettano una cuffia; nei filmati si vede che è applicato all'elmetto dei soladati ; elmetto che indossano sempre in azioni di guerra; non si va in giro con occhiali e monocolo senza il casco.
The battery-powered goggles resemble binoculars and attach to a helmet. They amplify existing
light. The amplified scene glows in shades of green on a tiny screen in the eyepiece.
The goggles have a few drawbacks. Soldiers cannot see through smoke, they have a narrow field of view and the devices weigh down their helmets. The goggles are so sensitive that a sudden burst of light can be disorienting.
But soldiers say those are minor inconveniences.
"You can tell what the person is, you can see what they're carrying, you know what kind of gear they've got on," said Pfc. Jacob Moss, 21, of Colorado Springs, a member of Company A, 2nd Battalion, 327th Infantry.
The Army has used the goggles for more than 20 years. They are now standard equipment for U.S. troops and come in a new monocular version that allows soldiers to use their other eye normally, reducing the blinding effect from a sudden burst of light.
The monocular "gives you more flexibility on the battlefield," said Fenner Milton, who heads the Army's Night Vision and Electronic Sensor Directorate. "You can look at a map or see the regular battlefield with a naked eye."
