A survey, using interview and observation, was made in five subject areas to determine current and anticipated problems associated with development and use of performance aids in the Air Force, and to identify implications of those problems for relevant research. The five areas surveyed are: job-task content and current performance aids for electronic technicians at typical Air Force sites, unique problems of performance aids in limited war operations, current requirements for optimum performance aids, the nature of future electronic technology as it may affect performance aids, and current and future developments in performance aids technology. Visits were made to 12 different Air Force bases, nine equipment development firms and laboratories, one commercial airline maintenance facility, one commercial communications firm, and conversations with ten researchers working in technical data and job performance. About 800 man-hours were spent in collecting information.
