Adoption of Forward Looking IR (Enhanced Flight Visibility Systems, EFVS in FAA speak) and Synthetic Vision Systems (SVS) would go a long way to eliminating night visual problems. The EFVS view, especially in a HUD, would have shown the line up planes as four large signatures and the lighting clearer, assuming it hadn't been converted to LED. The SVS would have shown the runway off line-up to the left in a daylight view and the taxiway in front of them. SVS is good enough to show you taxiing across a runway and the view on the PFD or MFD is identical to the outside view.
