This paper is part of a project concerned with the improvement of audio radiogoniometer design ergonomics and sound aesthetic. It introduces a virtual prototyping implementation of a simple radiogoniometer along with a methodology to assess its ecological validity. Said methodology involves a performance comparison between two different radiogoniometer designs, both implemented as virtual prototypes. While suggested assessment achievement supposes a companion study in a real environment (based on a physical prototype), significant results have already been gathered regarding the impact of the virtual environment on the virtual prototype validity.
