Abstract : The experiment investigated the effect of sequentially changing the background color during target detection. Two color sequences, three speeds, and twenty-four subjects were used on an experimental appartus designed and built at the Naval Postgraduate School. A three-way factorial analysis of variance was used to analyze the data. It appears that both the sequence of background colors and the speed at which the color changes have an effect on target detection time. (Author)
