Abstract
Although the value of aural displays is generally acknowledged, their use in modern sonar systems is limited because of the requirement for extensive operator training and experience before the systems can be used effectively. For aural displays to be useful in future sonar systems, better methods of presenting information aurally, and more effective training methods must be developed. This report reviews basic and applied research relevant to the development of enhanced aural displays and better training methods. It is not intended to provide precise answers on the value of aural displays or the form they should take; rather, the report is a working paper for those involved in providing such answers. Relevant basic research in psychoacoustics, pattern recognition, and cognitive processing is reviewed for possible innovative methods for improving aural displays. TRUNCATED
