The office/laboratory is equipped with sophisticated display and test equipment, including laser control system prototypes, a two-meter vection drum for visual-vestibular interaction studies, an oscilloscope-based drive movement in depth task, an automated eye movement recording/analysis device for workload and biocybernetics projects and several other visual task apparatuses (e.g., dynamic visual acuity), which are located in the 400 square foot laboratory area. Many PC based computerized tests (>100) are fully up and running in-house. Posture, eye movement and bioelectric measurement capability is also available.
RSK Assessments’ in-house library contains more than two dozen scientific journal subscriptions and over 40,000 scientific reprints in behavioral and neuroscience area and is maintained by a part-time resident librarian knowledgeable in human factors terminology.
