Abstract : The requirement was to validate task descriptions for operator and maintenance personnel in the new AN/TPQ-36 radar system and to assess the suitability of the 26B MOS for system maintenance, in support of programs to develop the radar training system and the parent system concurrently. The validation effort consisted of two steps: (1) an analysis and revision of the original task descriptions based on data from an operator training course, a maintenance demonstration, and interviews with development test II (DT II) and training course participants; and (2) an evaluation of the revised descriptions through performance observation and personnel survey during the AN/TPQ-36 operational test II (OT II).
