Abstract:

Effective prevention of direct fire fratricide and sensor modeling experimentation are both reliant on the understanding of cognitive processes associated with visual perception. Research conducted at the US Army Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate NVESD from the mid 1990s to the present has applied the recognition-by-components cognitive theory to develop combat identification tools to prevent fratricide, misidentification and collateral damage, and to aid in the development of sensor models through the improvement of human perception testing.
