The purpose of the research has been to study the performance of sonar operator personnel in their most difficult of tasks, signal interpretation or target classification, as it is affected by a variety of display variables and operational procedures. It was the authors objective to study the performance of sonar personnel, primarily those aboard submarines, in reaction to both audio and video presentations of a wide variety of representative target signals. As a result of the study, the author recommended that the classification performance skills of all submarine sonarmen, supervisors, and instructors should be determined by objective performance tests at least once a year.
