Abstract:

This report develops a framework which structures the variety of modeling approaches that might be taken in quantifying visual target acquisition. Significant omissions in current modeling efforts are identified. Past modeling approaches are described, including those emphasizing cognitive and subjective approaches. It is concluded that mathematical modeling is so dependent upon 1 the objectives of the user, 2 the class of situation being modeled, and 3 the methodological orientation of the modeler, that a single model cannot meet all requirements. This report is particularly useful to those engaged in modeling who desire an overview of modeling techniques.
