Abstract : The Human Performance Model (HPM) was developed as part of the Infrared Tactical Decision Aid Human Performance Modeling and Analysis Program. The Infrared Tactical Decision Aid (IRTDA) was developed by Air Weather Service as an analysis tool that helps a commander decide how to deploy forces and weapons by providing accurate range predictions of a pilot's ability to detect, identify, and recognize a target given a particular set of weather conditions and a particular sensor. The objective of the IRTDA development program was the accurate prediction of human performance using IR weapons systems.
