Abstract : Reports of operating problems with some of the newer airborne weapon system trainers (WST). The Human Factors Laboratory of the Naval Training Equipment Center undertook a critical review of the instructor operator stations of selected trainers. The initial review was of the EA-6B WST (Device 2F119) and was documented in technical report NAVTRAEQUIPCEN 81-M-1083-1. The results verified that significant problems did exist and constrained training effectiveness. This report covers a review of the WST for the F-14A aircraft, Device 2F112. The device differs from the 2F119 in simulation features, operating philosophy and relationship to other training devices utilized in the training program.
