Abstract:

The job of the Landing Signal Officer is to provide for the safe and expeditious recovery of aircraft aboard ship. Perceptual abilities related to job performance were identified and used as a basis to select a preliminary battery of perceptual tests which was administered to qualified LSOs and trainees. Results indicate that LSOs may be differentiated on the basis of perceptual style on a field independence dimension. Suggestions for validation of the test battery against LSO performance criteria are presented and reviewed.
