Abstract:

A laboratory test program was conducted to evaluate the effects of video signal bandwidth and target contrast ratio on visual target identification. The results of the tests indicate that 1 reducing the target contrast ratio degrades target identification abilities 2 reducing the video signal bandwidth degrades target identification abilities 3 the ability to identify targets is degraded less by video bandwidth reductions for low contrast targets than it is degraded by high contrast targets 4 the ability to identify targets is degraded less by target contrast ratio reductions when using a narrow video bandwidth rather than using a wide video bandwidth.
