Abstract:

The algorithm is modular in design. The user only need substitute either his own subroutines or parameter values in order to test his hypotheses on the solution of the reconnaissance problems. As written, the algorithm uses the authors hypotheses on the human visual system approach to a reconnaissance problem. The resulting algorithm consists of a main program that defines the options chosen by the investigator and the search procedure to be used. Individual subroutines are used to perform each of several tasks that are dependent upon the reconnaissance problem at hand. The investigator need only specify the options desired. If he desires to investigate alternate approaches to those already programmed, he can substitute alternate subroutines. The algorithm is intended for use as a research vehicle that can be adapted to the specific needs of the researcher. Fruitful subroutines can then be incorporated for use by other users. Author
