Abstract : Two investigations were performed into the conspicuity of stimuli equated for luminance, but of different purity and of different dominant wave length. In these experiments, subjects performed a simulated flight and responded to the stimuli as the stimuli appeared at various azimuth locations against a simulated sky background. The results supported the contention that purity will affect detection time in the simulated flight situation and that wave length also exerts an important effect. (Author)
