Abstract:

A final report is given on a study of antiaircraft tracking with the job miniature, described in a previous report. Experiments were conducted to determine the effect of periods of inactivity on tracking ability, and to resolve any differences in tracking for monocular vs. binocular vision. Tests using velocity-direct and acceleration-velocity-direct settings were used so that any differences in the two could be detected. It was noticed that for different speeds the experienced subjects tested approached the horizontal portion of their learning curves much sooner than did the novices, which indicated that inactivity reduced their operating skill perceptibility.
