Abstract : This report is intended primarily as an aid to those using, or planning to use, the Checkout and Maintenance (CAM) trainer. The report provides a brief description of the CAM trainer, detailed instructions for its operation, and the instruc tional programs prepared for use with the trainer. These programs teach checkout proce dures and other information relevant to the operation of the radar system used with the trainer. The CAM trainer was developed for use in research to improve electronic maintenance. It includes an AN/ASB-4 radar bombing naviga tional system, special electronic equipment to make the system function on the ground, a specially constructed device for presenting instructions to a student, and equipment to measure the student's performance. Under con trolled conditions, the CAM trainer presents taks similar to those encountered in the mainten ance of modern complex electronic systems. These tasks can be used for research on problems such as determining the major sources of difficulty in electronic maintenance, determining the best techniques and devices for training and aiding electronic maintenance personnel, and developing techniques for evaluating the proficiency of personnel performing electronic maintenance.
