Abstract:

Two aspects of air-to-ground daylight target acquisition were investigated. Study I examined the task of finding a target displayed on a cockpit-mounted CRT after the pilot had acquired it visually through the cockpit canopy. The effect of three different TV camera fields-of-view on the subjects ability to transition from outside to inside conditions was studied. The second experiment evaluated the differences in acquisition performance elicited by color and monochrome TV display presentations of ground targets.
