Abstract:

A Task Analysis Reduction Technique TART for collecting human factors information was developed and applied to the anti-submarine warfare tactical data system. TART is a specific procedure for analyzing the manmachine interface which allows the researcher to analyze sequential properties of the manmachine interaction. The technique is based on an analysis of the interface at a task level and uses closed circuit television and video tape recording apparatus. A trial application was performed using four air detectortrackers who were presented a one-hour air scenario in the anti-submarine warfare tactical data system. The results section presents various breakdowns of the TART data and indicate that TART can provide valuable insight into manmachine design and training effectiveness decisions. Author
