Abstract : The purpose of this study was to establish a preliminary target-background metric to be used in the prediction of dynamic visual aircrew target acquisition performance. This was accomplished by relating 14 physical and psychophysical characteristics of ten operational target-background encounters to observed air-to-ground cumulative target acquisition probability. The target acquisition performance on these targets had been previously validated by large-scale field tests conducted by Joint Task Force Two (JTF-2). (Author)
