VISUAL AIDS IN ACQUISITION.
AVCO EVERETT RESEARCH LAB INC EVERETT MA
The problem of visual aids in acquisition is examined in some detail. The capabilities of the naked eye and of the eye aided by monoculars or by image intensifiers are examined. It is proposed that a 20 degree field-of-view image converter instrument be fabricated based on a design developed in this study and that a second instrument be built with a field of view determined by our experience with pre-acquisition pointing aids in TRAP-6. A possible design for 5 degree field of view is proposed. It is also proposed that an acquisition simulator be built for training and for the evaluation of instrumentation being developed. Author
