Abstract:

This report describes work on a part of the USAFs Visual Target Classifier program T76240. It summarizes the pertinent results to date of an extended series of interrelated studies of mathematical models of visual performance capability. The starting point for the studies is a derivation of an analytic expression for the psychometric function. The subsequent studies involve the use of the analytic psychometric function as a tool for the prediction of the results of vision experiments which either have been performed or could be performed. The capability of making such predictions constitutes an important forward step toward an operational Visual Target Classifier System. In addition to the prediction of visual thresholds, the model can be used to explore the significance of currently employed techniques for the processing of experimental vision data. Author
