A STUDY OF THE ORGANIZATION OF DETECTION AND RECOGNITION SYSTEMS

The work on this project is to develop mathematical models of human target-detection behavior through experimental and theoretical investigations in the field of psychophysics. This goal has been attained for a broad class of detection situations, particularly in psychoacoustics. In many cases where mathematical models have not yet been developed, the framework for such development has been established. The results are 1 a formal development of a method for generating rational mathematical models of human performance in target-detection situations 2 a development of performance measures, experimental techniques, and presentation equipment to implement the above method and 3 the actual conduct of experiments with human observers in signaldetection situations for the purpose of developing mathematical models for describing their performance within the framework suggested.
