Abstract : The report describes a series of tests designed to investigate resolution and target recognition performance under conditions of direct viewing and TV mediated viewing of appropriate test stimuli. The long range objective of the program is to determine the television display simulation requirements that will enable, for training purposes, visual target acquisition performance comparable to that obtained in the real world. The study utilized resolution bar charts and simple target forms, varying in target-to-background contrast. (Author)
