Abstract:

The selection, development, and operation of several tasks for use in skilled-operator-performance research are described. The tasks are intended, collectively, to sample a broad spectrum of abilities required by complex operator systems individually they vary to the extent with which demands are placed upon attentional, sensory input, decision, and motor processes. A tracking and monitoring task simulates some of the functions associated with pilot skill, while a radar ATC task simulates the en route controllers functions. Other tasks auditory vigilance, problem solving, mental arithmetic, and choice reaction time are of a more abstract nature. Author
