Abstract : The Handbook is comprised of three volumes and is intended to provide guidelines and procedures appropriate for Air Force Operational Test and Evaluation (OT&E) personnel to use in planning, conducting and reporting the results of simulator assessment efforts. Although of value to all test personnel, it is primarily for the typical novice test manager/director - a person who has subject matter expertise (e.g., a qualified pilot or operator), but who may have little or no previous OT&E experience. The Handbook provides detailed coverage on OT&E planning and management with special emphasis on measuring device operational effectiveness and suitability. In accord with its objectives, the Handbook was prepared to serve as a supplement to Air Force Manual 55-43. 'Management of Operational Test and Evaluation,' by providing those specific additional evaluation concepts and techniques necessary for aircrew training device test and evaluation. (Author)
