Future soldier systems will have the possibility to implement technical support for so far not supported duties.
Target acquisition to aid target detection is one area of desirable support.
A series of field experiments have been conducted to test different kinds of support for target acquisition for single soldiers.
In two field experiments three different kinds of target acquisition methods were tested.
In the first experiment normal verbal communication between two soldiers was compared to a visual matching method giving the azimuth to the target with high accuracy.
The second experiment investigated the possibility to indicate the target by using a 3D-audio, a virtual oriented sound.
The result showed that visual matching gives the fastest and most reliable answers.
This method has also been considered to be the easiest method to use.
Free speech has given faster, but above all, more reliable answers than 3D-audio.
The report is completed with a discussion about the methods technical maturity and possibility to be but into practice.
