Abstract : The intelligence systems research program has as its objective to improve the Army's capability to process tactical intelligence information through application of current technology in data handling techniques, computer aids, work methods, and information management. The report evaluates the improvement of photointerpretation performance achieved by providing ancillary intelligence information to the photointerpreter. The research is presented in two sections: a reprint from Human Factors, 1972, and an appendix that supplements the journal article with additional detail on the photointerpretation task studied and the methodology employed.
