Abstract:

The effectiveness of computer graphics in training Navy personnel to recognize and identify several types of radar jamming was investigated. Dynamic moving and static nonmoving computer graphics were developed to enhance the unique or distinguishing features of each type of actual radar jamming. A title and a one-sentence description of the jamming accompanied each of the graphics. The subjects, who were students at the Fleet Combat Training Center, Pacific, were assigned to one of five experimental groups for preview training consisting of static graphics with or without descriptions, or jamming descriptions only or to a control group that received no preview training. Test results using videotapes of actual jamming indicate that dynamic graphics with descriptions are useful for visual recognition training..
