Paper Abstract

Experiments were conducted using image dynamics which simulated a ground-stabilized narrow FOV sensor to examine the effects of IR "Hot Spots" on target acquisition performance. Subjects were required to detect and recognize vehicle targets situated in backgrounds that varied in complexity. Displayed target signatures were representative of those associated with FLIR or TV imagery. Several performance and stimulus imagery measurements were recorded and preliminary regression analyses were performed on the results. Luminance distributions within the vehicle target and the background were important cues for both detection and recognition.
