In order to assist Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance ISR analysts engaged in perception and detection tasks, it is necessary to understand how perception and detection depend on the complexity of a scene and the salience and probability of exogenous events confronting the perceiver. Determining the functional dependence of detection performance on scene complexity and frequency or rarity of scene-element occurrence requires a method for manipulating scenarios of differing complexity and the subsequent information stream available to an analyst, a useful index of scene event complexity, or at least, the complexity of the activity and information available in a scene and a method for determining the frequency or rarity of dynamic scene content.
