Abstract : The evaluations made by 36 Navy fighter pilots of 64 air-to-air combat situations are statistically analyzed to detect any significant differences between pilots' evaluative techniques in relation to their rank, flight hours and combat missions. Predictor equations are computed and used in a self-analyzing, self-modifying artificial intelligence program modeled on an instructor-flight student interactive situation. (Author)
