Abstract:

The focus of this research is to improve the probability of detection of IEDs using human vision. According to Atkinson 2007, General Meigs imperative to Train the Force, has saved innumerable lives --soldiers who once spotted few roadside bombs in Iraq now detect more than half before detonation. Based on evidence from an analysis of the probability of detection of mines Staszewski and Davison, 2000, we believe further improvement is possible, specifically, by applying principles of perceptual learning. Perceptual learning involves relatively long-lasting changes to an organisms perceptual system that improve its ability to respond to its environment Goldstone 1998.
