Abstract : Four radar operators estimated the location of targets on simulated PPI's. Their data were analyzed for accuracy of range estimation as a function of target position with respect to range rings. The grouped data show that the average accuracy of estimation changes in a complex fashion as the distance from the range ring to the target increases. In general, targets near range markers and those near the center of the inter-ring distance are judged more accurately than those at other places. (Author)
