Abstract:

The objectives of this pilot study are to determine if it is possible 1 to predict human performance to displayed alphabetic characters that are presented in a varying noise background and 2 to predict at what range people have a 50 probability of identifying pictures of army vehicles. Each of the predictions is made using a model of the human visual system and statistical analysis. Predictions based on this analysis are compared to psychophysical performance. The results indicate the capability to predict the trend of human performance, thus warranting in-depth research into these areas.
