Abstract
This review of literature, and annotated bibliography, on sonar operator-machine interfaces (OMI) and related evaluation issues was contracted by the Defence Research Establishment Atlantic (DREA). This work was aimed at developing a methodology for assessing the impact of OMI on the operational capability of sonar systems. The document reports on a multi-phased project that involved: Identification of human factors issues associated with operator performance when using a sonar system, including the operator-machine interface; Literature on areas identified as being of interest to DREA's short term requirements; Prioritization of OMI issues to be included in sonar assessment methodologies, based on the literature review. The report summarizes major human performance models developed for tasks with similar human-systems relationships to sonar. The strengths and weaknesses of these models and their applicability to the study of the sonar OMI are outlined. The literature on sonar modeling and specific OMI issues was annotated to provide a simple classification or taxonomy of published work. The purpose was to identify OMI issues investigated to date, major findings, where research was being conducted, and to develop priorities for future research.
