Abstract : A prototype computer-based training (CBT) system was developed to investigate the effectiveness of applying interactive, 3-D graphics techniques to teach Render Safe Procedures (RSPs) for Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD). The EOD Graphical Trainer (EOD-GT) prototype combines conventional multimedia computer based instruction with interactive manipulation of the ordnance in a 3-dimensional graphical environment to provide the student with opportunities to engage the ordnance and hands- on practice of RSP procedures. The prototype EOD-GT focuses on the SUU-25 airborne dispenser and was installed at the U.S. Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal School for evaluation. Development of the system and future directions are discussed in this report.
