Abstract : The report provides a general description of the design and features of the Simulator for Air to Air Combat (SAAC). The limitations of the research in transfer of training prevent the prediction of the effectiveness of a simulator, but a qualitative technique (Stimulus-Response Analysis) does point to the existence of positive transfer in the SAAC. The cost effectiveness analysis is carried out with the transfer of training treated as a varible. The results of the investigation indicate that the exact measure of transfer is not essential to the training device. (Author)
