The Navy has given extensive support to the development of several different integrated display concepts for nuclear submarines. The report describes a research program through which comparative, empirical analyses of these concepts was accomplished and aid was provided in selection of the most promising approach from a systems effectiveness viewpoint. The experiments established guidelines for use of these integrated displays in vehicle control including monitoring and mission plan revision as a function of external constraints such as attacking weapons systems. The experimental approach employed tests designed to reveal differences which have practical significance to the Navy by measuring tracking performance with and without forced sampling or blanking recording reaction, judgment, and decision times and determinating correctness of decisions on problems requiring interpretive judgment, evasive maneuvers, and return to the preproblem tracking task.
