Abstract : With the introduction of the MH-53E helicopter as a platform for airborne mine countermeasures, a new cockpit flight simulator was proposed. This simulator, device 2F141, will provide the US Navy with the capability to simulate the flight environment of an airborne mine countermeasures mission. The method of the Instructional System Development (ISD) model was applied as a framework for development of a training program. This study concentrated on the analysis phase of the ISD process. Through the application of a task analysis and quantification methodology of the Mission Operability Assessment Technique (MOAT) a rank ordering of subtasks and major flight segments for the ship-based MK-105 magnetic minesweeping mission was determined. This study found that the major flight segments of landing, takeoff and preparation for tow, and transit to the minefield required the most improvement to increase the mission operability and effectiveness score. Therefore, a training program should be designed and developed that will effect these improvements by utilizing the cockpit flight simulator. Keywords: Conjoint measurement; Task analysis. (Theses)
