Abstract : Preliminary laboratory research on methods for evaluating aerial flare sources and for optimizing their placement are described. Ten subjects performed target acquisition (detection and recognition) tasks under simulated Mark 24 flarelight (2,000,000 candlepower), and ten under simulated Briteye flarelight conditions (5,000,000 candlepower).
