Abstract : This report describes an experimental program aimed at arriving at some recommendations for transforming radar signals into auditory displays which are compatible with operator capabilities. Four experiments were conducted for the purpose of: (1) determining the feasibility of using the perception of the direction of a binaurally produced sound image as an audio display; (2) measuring the human capacity for judging the intermittency of audio signals; (3) examining the feasibility of using an auditory illusion of intensity change as a display; and (4) examining the interaction among signal dimensions.
