Abstract : This report documents two presentations on air combat performance measurement research. The first, Modeling Pilot expertise in Air Combat, was presented at and published in the Proceedings of the Human Factors Society 36th Annual Meeting in Atlanta, GA, which was held on 12-16 October 1992. This presentation discussed an effort to model expert pilot performance and decision making in one-versus-one (1V1) air-to-air combat. The second Validating Model of Air Combat Expertise, was presented at and published in the proceedings of the 14th Biennial Applied Behavioral Sciences Conference, 6-8 April 1994, at Colorado Springs, CO. It describes the intelligence System for Air-to-Air Combat (ISAAC) which was developed to model expertise in 1v1, within-visual-range, air combat. ISAAC was developed based upon a subject matter expert's verbal protocol provided in structured interviews and in protocols collected both during and after simulated combat engagements flown in the Simulator for Air-to-Air Combat (SAAC).
