Abstract : Three experiments of reduced-scale stadimetric ranging training were conducted for a criterion range of 1500 meters. The observers for all studies were trained in a reduced-scale (1/48) environment with stadimetric or occlusion ranging aids. Two of the studies also included a full-scale performance test with jet aircraft. The ranging training method consisted primarily of immediate feedback that contained either qualitative or quantitive information. The results of these studies are discussed. (Author)
