Abstract : This Memorandum presents a series of experimental investigations conducted to provide answers to certain specific questions concerning navigational techniques, parameters of difficulty, and characteristics of the lensatic compass which could not be obtained from the literature on past research. Besides their immediate applicability to the ALN training program, the findings are of consequence to others concerned with land navigation. At a more general level, the methods of investigation have illustrative value, and certain of the findings have implications for those concerned with training research and education. (Author)
