Abstract:

The report summarizes findings from the four research tasks comprising Project IDENTIFY for FY 74. During FY 73 research into the identification of the individual differences involved in mine detection produced a body of human factors data relevant to the mine detection problem. A major purpose of the FY 74 research was to continue gathering and analyzing human factors data in the area of unaided mine detection. This research was designed not only to gather additional human factors data for an unpopulated field environment, but also to gather it for a built-up area environment. In addition, it was designed to identify the human factors involved in vehicular operations, both along an established road and in a cross-country setting.
