Abstract : This report covers a survey of the IOS of a part-mission trainer, Training Device 2E6, an Air Combat Maneuvering Simulator. The device is significantly different from the WSTs surveyed previously (Device 2F119 and Device 2F112) in terms of the training objectives and in the characteristics of the trainer. The training objectives are concerned exclusively with the visual attack phase of air-to-air combat. Thus the environment and vehicle simulation requirements are limited and the training events consist of multiple relatively short duration 'flights.' Training Device 2E6 consists of two domes inside which is projected the simulated visual world and which house the training mockups. Two IOSs are provided so that the two training mockups can be operated as independent trainers. The two trainers can also be 'tied' together and operated as a single training device. The survey of the IOSs included reviewing technical documentation for the device, observing training operations and interviewing instructors, mission operators and technical personnel supporting the trainer. In addition, operating procedures were analyzed. The goal was to identify console design deficiencies and develop feasible solutions, for both short and long term.
