Recent events have increased interest in the ranges at which the helicopter crewman can be expected to detect andor identify a target. Studies of air-to-ground target detection identification have all concluded with essentially the same results a stationary, passive, noncamouflaged military ordnance type of target can be detected by an observer in a slow speed, 60 knots, low flying, less than 300 feet, helicopter at maximum ranges up to 2000 meters but cannot be reliably identified at ranges greater than 1000 meters.
