From the Navy description of this photograph of WAVES in training at the Aviation Gunnery School in Pensacola, Florida:

This 3A-2 trainer shoots a beam of light at the moving picture of a pane projected on the screen. Movement of the place is controlled by the operator of the projector, a WAVE who completed the course 2 weeks earlier.

The photo comes from the National Archives.
