Abstract:

This report describes the second phase of a research program designed to investigate requirements for an effective integrated surveillance system utilizing several combinations of radars and night vision devices. The results, obtained in a realistic setting, showed that 1 the highest quality of target detection information reported to battalion was obtained by surveillance teams consisting of one ANPPS-5A Ground Surveillance Radar Operator, one Night Observation Device Operator, a team chief, and a radio-telephone operator 2 ground surveillance radar operators were unable to identify reliably either target types or target classes wheel vs track vehicles personnel vs vehicles under simulated operational conditions 3 simple, low-cost modifications to training and work procedures greatly enhanced the performance of PPS-5A ground surveillance radar operators.
