Abstract : A prototype training course to apply map interpretation and terrain analysis (MITAC-II) to low-altitude fixed-wing navigation was developed to improve visual orientation skills of Marine Corps aircrews. The course consisted of a slide-tape illustrated lecture and a series of dynamic simulation exercises using 70-mm cinematic techniques. Fifteen advanced aircrew training instructors participated in the demonstration and evaluation of the course and served as subject-matter experts. MITAC-II was pronounced effective in improving low-altitude orientation with specific improvements recommended for the production model. (Author)
