Abstract : An individual trainer for giving students in RIO schools concentrated practice in basic procedures for air-to-air intercepts was designed around a programmable graphics terminal with two integral minicomputers and 8K of core memory. The trainer automatically administers practice in computing values of variables in the intercept triangle, and in making the turns required to put the fighter into position for a sidewinder attack. In an initial field at the RIO school, Glynco, Georgia, each of 29 students received ten hours of practice on this trainer. Data for the values of 33 variables were automatically recorded and were analyzed. (Modified author abstract)
