Abstract : Training Assistance Technology is the collection of tools that are provided as part of the training system to assist the instructor in conducting the training process. They would typically consist of automated capabilities designed to support specific parts of the training process, such as to provide detailed postscenario feedback to the trainees. Many of these capabilities would be implemented as a part of the computer-driven training device, although usually not impacting the simulation fidelity, and thus comprising the training subsystem of the training device. The Submarine Advanced Reactive Tactical Training System (SMARTTS), the direct product of a long-term research and development program sponsored by the U.S. Naval Technology in an applied environment. SMARTS is provided, as integrated with a Submarine Combat Systems Trainer. Other applications of this generic technology are presented, with detailed examples. (Author)
