Abstract : This study was conducted to determine the feasibility and desirability of incorporating training devices in the Mark 68 Fire Control Maintenance Training Course at the Great Lake Naval Training Center. Accounts are given in this report concerning the maintenance tasks as they exist aboard various ships, results of inquiries into the school and its program, and relevant aspects of the state of the art in instructional devices. Based upon a synthesis of information gathered from these sources, recommendations and specifications for training devices were derived and are present in this report. Although this study was focused upon the Mark 68 Fire Control System the result, to a considerable extent, is generalizable to other fire control systems. (Author)
