Abstract : Fundamental concepts are developed for the application of information management and artificial intelligence-based decision making technology to current and future surveillance, command, control and communications (C3) training systems. Specific emphasis is placed upon Airborne Early Warning and Control (AEW&C) training systems using the E-3 Mission Simulator as the analysis example. Present Mission Simulator capabilities are discussed along with ongoing improvement programs. Training inadequacies and instructor workload problems are highlighted. Advanced information management and artificial intelligence techniques are proposed to overcome these and other training deficiencies and to increase instructor efficiency. Extensions of these techniques for operational system use are also presented. (Author)
