Abstract:

The NIGHT OPERATIONS program is concerned with problems in optimizing human performance in relation to night vision devices and related sensors. The present publication provides a description and evaluation of the effectiveness of an instrumentation system developed under concepts provided by BESRL research scientists. The primary objective in this phase of the research was to develop an instrumentation system, embodying the requirements and essential characteristics for effective and accurate measurement of target detection and search behavior in field testing.
