Abstract:

The research dealt with three problem areas selection of the minimum number of views of each aircraft required for effective recognition training, determination of an appropriate exposure duration for test images, and determination of the relative emphasis needed on friendly and hostile aircraft to produce adequate identification performance. The uniformity of performance on a post training test was a function of the number and distribution of the views used in training and the similarity level of the aircraft. Differences in duration from one to five seconds were critical only for the most highly similar aircraft. Both friendly and hostile aircraft need to be given equal training emphasis.
