Abstract : The study is the third in a series which is concerned with man as a monitor. These studies are related to the problems encountered in automatic and semiautomatic systems, and in the modern submarine in particular, where a man must detect and control incoming signals. The study was designed to obtain performance measures when Ss had a two-fold task, that of compensatory tracking on one display (keeping a pointer on target) while monitoring two other displays for discrete, steady-state signals.
