Abstract:

A supplementary report is presented on antiaircraft tracking concerned principally with accelerational following and magnification. A revised and more complete analysis of psychological results is also included. An operational equation is given describing approximately the behavior of an experimental tracking mechanism of which the circuit diagram is given. It was concluded that the use of an accelerational component reduces the error considerably. Results of psychological tests given show that out of a group of fifteen tests given operators only three strength preferred hand, percent difference of strength between two hands, and the stopping of the preferred hand, showed anything but trivial correlation with teh excellence number slow speed for the fourth week.
