Abstract:

The results of previous research suggested that a battery of 3-4 specific visualperceptual tests would be employed to predict proficiency as an operator of visual sonar displays. This test battery was validated on a new group of ANBQQ-5 and ANBQQ-6 sonar technicians and once again moderate multiple correlations were produced. The tests include measures of near vision, intelligence, experience and personality their implications for maximum utilization of sonar technicians are discussed.
