Abstract:

This study recorded the target-detection ranges achieved by 10 combat-qualified U.S. Army Aviators flown on nap-of-the-earth route reconnaissance against camouflaged tanks, and their target detection times when performing the pop-up maneuver against the camouflaged tanks. On 10 of the 20 day flights the aviators eye movements and fixation points were recorded, and the aviators wore the ANPVS-5 night vision goggles on 10 of the 20 night flights.
