This report describes an experiment conducted to obtain data for use in determining the effects of a number of targets and background clutter elements on visual target detection performance by means of the unaided eye. Data obtained from this experiment consist mainly of whether or not single or groups of tank targets within controlled clutter defined as tree density configurations were detected, and the times of detection. Statistical methods, including analysis of variance tests and Newman-Keuls tests, are employed to assess the effects of target and clutter factors on detection performance. For this experiment, the effects of number of targets were determined to be more important than those of clutter on detection performance, and there were no significant effects due to interaction between targets and clutter elements.
