Abstract:

A previously developed computer based, digital simulation technique was applied to a sonar situation in order to verify the applicability of the technique for simulating sonar detection and track tasks. No statistically significant differences were noted between task success predictions of the model and criterion data based on the performance of sonar technicians. In a second study aspect, the time for sonar technicians, at two skill levels, to perform the motor acts involved in sonar apparatus operation and their time to detect a target was investigated. The motor performance of less skilled journeyman operators was about 20 slower and 20 more variable than that of the more skilled technicians. Author
