Abstract : Two experiments were performed to measure the speed and accuracy of operating the TDT-11 and BRI-3 equipments. The first experiment measured the speed and accuracy with which radarmen can designate randomly assigned targets with the TDT-11 equipment. Six operators and one TDT unit were tested. The VF indicator provided the accuracy criterion. The second experiment measured the speed and accuracy with which radarmen can receive randomly assigned targets with the BRI equipment. Six operators and two BRI units were tested. The VF indicator provided the accuracy criterion. (Author)
