Abstract:

The aim of this project is to provide basic knowledge of the methods which may be used by a man-computer system to detect the presence of a target, using data from a passive sonar receiver. This research consists of analytical studies to evaluate important system parameters and experimental investigations measuring operator performance under various operating conditions. The first two reports in this volume describe the effects of pattern variations on human pattern recognition. The results measured the operators ability to visually detect patterns differing in shape and to detect patterns generated by statistically dependent sequences. The second two reports deal with basic human information processing and describe the testing of a predictive model for reaction time to visual stimuli and a test of the effects of number of stimuli on memory span.
