Paper Abstract

The presented work gives an overview on the efforts of the NATO SET-198 research task group. It comprises nonrestricted material, which is already published or is to be published in journals. Main topics are the development and validation of computer models in order to understand the impact of laser dazzling on the detection of objects in a scene but also on the accomplishment of visual-based tasks. The work includes laboratory and field dazzling tests on sensors and humans, computer eye-dazzle modeling, automatic character recognition and laboratory observer trials for validation purposes of the used algorithms. The impact of dazzling is studied in dependence of laser wavelength, laser power and camera type.
