Abstract:

The properties of the visual system, including Human MTF are described. Ground target environmental factors, including TargetBackground variables, and atmospheric conditions are related to target acquisition by direct visual search and through imaging systems. Imaging systems parameters are described. Prediction and evaluation of target acquisition through modeling and simulation are discussed. Areas for further target acquisition work are recommended. A bibliography of more than 1750 entries is accompanied by tables which key the entries to target acquisition parameters and variables.
