Abstract : In ships employing Action Data Automation (A5D5A5) systems, information from the various sensors (e.g. radar, sonar, visual look-out etc.) is presented to an operator in the form of computer-generated characters on a cathode ray tube. Sometimes these displays will be mounted horizontally to provide a conference facility for several men. Research was conducted on problems which might arise with proposed systems, and to compare the efficiencies of alternative symbologies. (Author)
