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 report is a description of the overall research capability of the display facility at the University of Connecticut facility. The next two reports describe experimental investigations using a simulated sonar search task. The results of the operators ability to detect curved targets and to use computer aids under light-pen control are described in one while the effects of transforming the dots to vertical line segments are discussed in the other. The next three reports describe a series of experiments on basic human information processing characteristics. Author
