Abstract:

A model is presented for predicting the time cumulative probabilities of visual detection of a single aircraft by a ground observer searching an unstructured background. The important elements of the model are supported by appropriate references to psychophysical experimentation. The model is registered on a small amount of field testing at present the author intends to broaden the scope of the model and continue registration on field tests in the future.
