RESULTS OF THE VISUAL DETECTION SIMULATION EXPERIMENT FOR THE EVALUATION OF AIRCRAFT PILOT WARNING INSTRUMENTS (APWI). VOLUME II
Results are reported of a Visual target Detection Simulator. Evidence for the validity of simulation, consisting of calibration data and comparisons of detection results obtained in the simulator with real world data from other sources, is reviewed. In the experiment reported APWI systems with sharp range and altitude cut-offs were simulated, and with bearing resolutions of 180, 30, and 2 deg.; part of the experiment was run with no APWI at all for comparison. The results show how the most critical factor in determining the probability of detection of a target is the time available to the pilot for detection.
