Abstract : Training Devices and simulations are becoming increasingly more important as a means of producing combat ready soldiers. Todays Army Trainer finds himself facing training inhibitors such as complex weapons systems, rising ammunition and operating costs, safety restrictions and noise pollution. A potential solution to these inhibitors can be found in the emerging sophistication of training devices. A new field of computer technology which uses advanced programs to approximate human thought processes has particular appeal. This field called Artificial Intelligence (AI) has the ability to capture expertise in a particular field and use that knowledge to teach trainees or assist them in a diagnostic process. Of particular benefit to the Field Artillery is such an Expert System which can be used to teach the skills required of a Fire Support Officer (FSO). Present methods used by the U.S. Army Field Artillery School require a Fire Support Officer to develop expertise through service in the field. Expert Support Officer can be used to develop highly qualified FSO's so they are ready to perform when they first report to maneuver units. Additionally Expert Systems can be developed to assist mechanics in the diagnosis and repair of the complex systems which make up todays Field Artillery. Training Developers must be made aware of this emerging technology in order to develop the next generation of training devices.
