Abstract : This paper contains recommendations for solutions to problems in team training (T2) in command and control (C2) systems in the Air Force. The recommended solutions are proposed as projects within the current state of technology. They are near-term projects and require only design and preparation for an existing application rather than further development or research. The recommended projects were generated to address issues and problem areas identified in a survey of AFC2T2. Eleven projects were recommended, consisting of taxonomy development, methodology for team task analysis, evaluation of team readiness, guidelines and aids for defining simulated combat mission, formal training material for C2 system supervisory personnel, development of supplemental skill training for entrants into the air weapons controller career field, formal training for operators of interceptor simulators, procedures for program evaluation, procedures for compiling and using after-action reports, attitude survey of discontent in C2 career fields, and an instructor resource package for operational unit instructors. The plan for a project to implement a technique for training is discussed in greater detail. (Author)
