The report presents an analysis and discussion of issues relevant to planning research to examine the contributions of multisensor imagery to intelligence requirements. Parameters influencing imagery are examined to determine how the influences can be specified in terms of scale, resolution, contrast, or other effects. Experimental designs are presented which allow for expansion and trade-off as subjects and imagery become available. The relevance of ground truth and image truth to image collection system losses and performance evaluation is examination. Finally, a basis is presented for construction of measures of proficiency of image interpreters who will serve as subjects in research on image reconnaissance systems. Such measures can be used to select, match, or train subjects to given levels of proficiency. Author
