This thesis provides a general background to the experimental
studies of air-to-ground target acquisition reported in the appendices. An introductory chapter outlines some of the human
factors problems associated with high-speed, low-level flight
with particular reference to visual tasks, including visual and
televisual target acquisition. The remainder of the work falls
into three main parts; a review of the literature relating to
target acquisition performance; an account of the techniques
available for the study of target acquisition; and an evaluation
of the present author's experimental work. [Continues.]
