Abstract
Remote sensing systems may be regarded as extensions of man's natural senses. As such, they should be governed by the same principles that govern natural perception. Perception is described as a means whereby information useful for action is separated from the enormous mass of useless information, and encoded in a way suited to rapid evaluation of potential behaviour. This functional viewpoint leads to the idea that the "attention" of a "central processor" must be devoted at any one time to a small region of the enviornment and that a behaving organism should be provided with a large number of feature detectors which continually monitor the enviornment of the central processor and send "alarms" when such features are detected.
