Abstract:

The purposes of the study were 1 to explore the effects of prior task-related experience on FLIR Forward Looking InfraRed target acquisition and 2 to determine the effects of several real-time imagery related variables on target acquisition. Three groups of subjects were tested including trained FLIR operators, photo interpreters, and untrained college students. The thirty subjects were presented with airborne video-taped FLIR imagery which had been edited into 15-second segments. Eleven different targets were included in the stimulus set ranging from large industrial facilities to small military vehicles. Detection, classification and identification time, and accuracy were recorded. Scanning patterns were also recorded using the viewing hood oculometer.
