Abstract:

A sample of experienced aviation antisubmarine warfare operators AWs was administered an experimental survey questionnaire designed to provide information about the quality of initial training and job conditions associated with acoustics analysis. Performance tests were then used to measure their performance on acoustic analysis tasks. Results indicated that the questionnaire measure was successful in predicting sonar operator performance in the AW community. It is likely that this general technique could be used to assess skill degradationmaintenance in other technical ratings as well. Author
