Abstract : This report presents a research concept for developing and applying methods for collecting measures of performance for close air support aircraft equipped with hardware to integrate with the Air-Ground Training Feedback System at the National Training Center. This paper, discusses background, development of an outcome collection method, data collection hardware, and proposes a data collection method for examining the effects of close air support systems on the battlefield. This report is part of a complete package of hardware, battle planning tasks, and outcome measures. These products will assist commanders and their units training at the National Training Center, as well as analysts studying trends in training and operations. The Air-Ground Training Feedback System is a promising addition to the training at the National Training Center. However, the capability of the system to produce the outcome measures discussed above is dependent upon instrumentation and availability of trained observers/controllers.
