Abstract:

The report summarizes experimental studies using a scale model simulator to determine visibility distances of military targets under certain nighttime illumination conditions. The experiments concerned both detection and identification of targets, which were observed along ground paths under simulated natural and artificial nighttime illumination. The studies were intended to provide a basis for better understanding and specifying the stimulus factors that influence target visibility under such conditions. Photometric data were used to relate the simulator conditions to actual field conditions.
