Abstract:

The Naval Aerospace Medical Research Laboratory NAMRL has been pursuing a research program to develop easily administered tests of vision skills that are valid, practical tools for the selection of personnel likely to be successful in the naval aviation arena. From 1980 to 1985, NAMRL maintained a data collection effort measuring the vision of U.S. Navy fighter pilots assigned to the air-to-air combat training range NAS Oceana, VA. Both operational performance and vision test data were collected from the pilots. This report presents a the underlying theoretical orientation that guided that research effort, b a summary of the research results to date, and c the ideas guiding the design of the research strategy projected for the future. For convenience, abstracts of the principle publications describing this work are assembled in the appendix. Biomedical standards, Vision, Navy jet pilots, Operational performance, Review paper.
