Hebrew term or phrase: א"א
Wider context --

He requested night photography and infra red equipment. In his letter he took care to refute rumors and myths: there is no way to guarantee good results with night photography since in the known technology at that time there were more failures than successes. As for א"א, contrary to “common belief”, there is no way to photograph with it through clouds, fog or smoke. Despite that, it is recommended to purchase it, mainly because of the feature that allows camouflage to be identified when the film is compared to regular photo film.
