Abstract:

The aim of this project is to provide basic knowledge concerning 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 two reports in this volume are concerned with the behavior of systems under changing or dynamic conditions. The first report is an introduction and bibliography through Spring 1967 covering the areas of artificial intelligence, adaptation, learning, and pattern recognition. In addition, the definitions of adaptation and learning are discussed. The second report is an extensive analytical and experimental study of the operators behavior in a dynamic detection task. The effects of changes in signal to noise and feedback state were investigated. Author
