Abstract : A detection and identification test of four basic geometric shapes was conducted. The test was conducted in two phases. In phase 1 the stimulus objects were painted with an olive green flat latex paint (OG); in Phase 2, after having been so painted, they also were coated with a noncuring silicone-based adhesive. 200 enlisted personnel participated as subjects. The report presents the results of the test. (Author)
