Low light, indirect lighting.

Here's the most recognized..........

The rear lights (below) were used mostly for estimating/judging distance behind vehicles at night.

All of the Notek lights were designed to be used under black-out restrictions...so the indirect lighting/hooded light concept was essential for the front light when the standard/main lights couldn't be used to avoid being spotted from ground or aerial observers. The rear lights were used to maintain proper vehicle spacing at night under similar black-out conditions and worked on the concept of optical convergence at different distances to achieve that which is why the rectangular style light has 4 windows but the sizes of the windows are different. Depending on how far away from the light you were dictated what pattern of the 4 windows you saw and provided a constant frame of reference to avoid vehicles ramming into each other in the dark.

When following another vehicle in blackout drive, you try to see only 2 lights. If you see only 1, you are too far away and if you see all 4, you are too close.
