Abstract:

A VJ remote radar indicator was mounted at seven angles scope-face with respect to the floor 0, 15, 30, 45, 60, 75, 90 degrees and tests were made to discover whether there is an optimum mounting angle for operator performance. The results of the experiment show that the angle at which a VJ is mounted has no significant effect on an operators speed andor accuracy in target indication. A questionnaire was given to the group of subject-operators used in the experiment to determine which mounting angle they preferred. An analysis of these results gave the following rank order from most to least preferred 15, 45, 30, 60, 0, 75, 90 degrees. The 0 degrees position is the conventional mounting angle. Author
