Paper Abstract

A target attractiveness model is used for field of view search. The model describes the search as a two-step process. The observer first decides to move to some location base don its attraction and size. These attractive points are further divided by a second decision which determines whether or not an observer will perform a detailed examination of the area or will choose a new attractive point. The model is tested on human performance experiments performed by the US Night Vision and Electronic Sensor Directorate.
