Abstract:

The report covers an experiment to determine the effects of number of targets and background clutter on static, low altitude, target detection performance by the unaided eye, as would be experienced in a helicopter-type target acquisition environment. The data consist mainly of whether or not single or groups of tank targets 1, 3, or 9 within controlled clutter configurations were detected, and the corresponding times to detect them. Statistical methods are employed to assess the effects of target and clutter factors on detection performance.
