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.
