Abstract : The automation of weapons system training presents the potential for significant savings in training costs in terms of manpower, time, and money. The demonstration of the technical feasibility of automated training through the application of advanced digital computer techniques and advanced training techniques is essential before the application of such techniques is warranted. The advanced computer techniques include the incorporation of real-time performance monitoring and course scheduling. The advanced training techniques center on the feasibility of adaptive training based on performance measurement reflecting operational performance requirements. Automated Ground Controlled Approach and emergency procedures tasks were implemented and tested with operational pilots. The results demonstrated the feasibility of automated training as well as the acceptance of the training technique by operational personnel. Recommendations for the testing of the effectiveness and efficiency of the techniques are made. (Author)
