Abstract : The purpose of the study was to learn what methodology cybernetics might have to offer mine detection. Namely, given a variety of sensor inputs from the changing images of a mine field being scanned, how might one augment the character of a display system in a cybernetic sense so as to enhance the capability of a man to detect mines. The report provides both a survey of pertinent cybernetic literature and an outline of relevant cybernetic principles drawn from the contractor's expertise in this field. (Author)
