Abstract:

During the summer of 1962 a field experiment was conducted at the U. S. Naval Ordnance Test Station, China Lake, California. This field test consisted of a coordinated program of visual sightings and measurements of the environmental and target properties appropriate to the observations. The specific task undertaken by the Visibility Laboratory was to aid in the design of the experiment to obtain the observations, to conduct the program of measurement of the environmental and target properties, and to use these data to predict the sighting ranges. This report contains a description of the design of the visual experiment, the details of the program of geophysical measurement, and the predicted sighting ranges. The observed sighting and recognition ranges will be published in a separate report by the Naval Ordnance Test Station. Author
