Paper Abstract

A model is proposed for determining the effect of image clutter on the time-line behavior of observer eye fixations when searching for targets in infrared scenery. Several possible metrics for qualitatively evaluating the degree of clutter are tested. Correlations between these metrics, the probability of fixating a particular area, and the length of time spent fixating a particular area are discussed.
