Abstract : The Department of Defense (DoD) is facing a shortage of qualified instructors for its advanced technical weapons training facilities. This shortage is because of the current downsizing trend, without a similar trend in the development of weapons and computer systems. To maintain a force of highly trained, technical personnel, DoD must investigate other methods for training and maintaining a highly technical force. The advanced capabilities of modem computer systems with the use of Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS) can provide a supplemental training aid for the lack of human instructors. This thesis proposes the use of a Design Support Tool (DST) to assist instructional designers in the development of ITS systems for the DoD.
