Abstract:

MANMOD is a digital computer program that is designed to predict operatorsystem response during a compensatory tracking task. The program is specifically tailored to handle manned operation of missile weapons systems, where the quality and nature of the displayed information, the characteristics of platform andor target induced motion, and the operator response strategy change with time. Thus, MANMOD can be used to study time-dependent effects, such as disturbance variations, instrument switchovers, and temporary loss of the optical target signal. In addition, the incorporation of displayed-related threshold and resolution limitations allows one to study, with reasonable fidelity, the effects of instrument modification.
