Abstract
A model has been developed that predicts the probability of detection as a function of time for a sensor on a moving platform looking for a stationary object. The proposed model takes as input P (calculated from NVThermIP), expresses it as a function of time using the known sensor-target range and outputs detection probability as a function of time. The proposed search model has one calibration factor that is determined from the mean time to detect the target. Simulated imagery was generated that models a vehicle moving with constant speed along a straight road with varied vegetation on both sides and occasional debris on the road and on the shoulder. Alongside, and occasionally on the road, triangular and square shapes are visible with a contrast similar to that of the background but with a different texture. These serve as targets to be detected. In perception tests, the ability of observers to detect the simulated targets was measured and excellent agreement was observed between modeled and measured results.
