Abstract : The Navy's primary mission is combat warfare in the defense of our country. To achieve this mission it is vital that Naval Officers in operational billets assigned to ships, submarines, aircraft squadrons and afloat staffs maintain the highest degree of readiness and tactical expertise. The objective of the present research was to identify those factors that a line officer perceives as enhancing or constraining his opportunity to learn and practice tactical employment of his weapons and combat systems. This Technical Report describes the Pretest survey vehicle administered randomly to five hundred (500) Air Warfare Officers to achieve the stated objective. Survey design, methodology, data obtained, computer programs written for data analyses, feedback in the form of relative comments obtained, and preliminary results of analysis are included. (Author)
