COLOR NEGATIVE AND BLACK-AND-WHITE NEGATIVE IMAGERY AND INTERPRETER PERFORMANCE COLOR AND B&W NEGATIVES FOR P:

A TEST CONDUCTED AMONG PHOTO INTERPRETERS SHOWED THAT THEY OBTAINED SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER SCORES USING COLOR NEGATIVE IMAGERY THAN WITH BLACK-AND-WHITE. NEGATIVE MATERIALS ARE OFTEN USED IN TACTICAL MILITARY RECONNAISSANCE. FOUR SUBJECTS WERE TESTED USING ACTUAL SAMPLES OF BOTH KINDS OF MATERIALS WHICH CONTAINED NEARLY 300 DISCRETE TARGETS. ALL SUBJECTS SCORED BETTER WITH THE COLOR MATERIALS, AND THE AVERAGE INCREASE WAS 14 PERCENT. THIS SEEMS TO BE THE ONLY STUDY TO DATE CONCERNED WITH THE DETECTION OF DISCRETE TARGETS USING COLOR NEGATIVE IMAGERY. /PE/
