Abstract : A feasibility demonstration of the application of automated-adaptive training techniques for air-to-air intercept training in a flight simulator was conducted. The training task included three phases: (1) a climb task under GCI/CIC control, (2) an attack phase under RIO control and a steering dot display, and (3) a descent phase also under GCI/CIC control. Sidewinder-type missile intercepts including head-on, forward-quarter, and beam runs were incorporated into a training syllabus. Atmospheric turbulence, aircraft configuration, and bank angle were employed as adaptive variables. Performance was objectively measured for each phase, and the syllabus was restructured (on-line) based on that performance. (Modified author abstract)
