In connection with a study dealing with human discrimination possibilities in missile defense discrimination, it was decided to test the ability of human observers to discriminate color differences among widely spaced moving images. Before these color discrimination tests were conducted, it was necessary to develop the equipment for such visual presentations. Several approaches to the design of this equipment were considered, and it was decided to use motion picture color photography, which seemed to be the most expedient method that satisfied the requirements of the discrimination tests. Equipment was developed to produce colored images on motion picture film by photographing a light source through several combinations of filters. Before an animation was filmed, the motion picture film was calibrated for color rendition, making it possible to produce the desired color on each film frame by means of different filter settings. The display simulator provides the multiple images required for the discrimination tests, and permits close control over image parameters such as color and position.
