Abstract : This research report identifies U.S. Army aviation system and subsystem acquisitions projected for the time period of 1985 to 2000 which will require behavioral research to support development of new aircrew training methods and equipment. The report describes the conduct and results of three tasks; (a) a survey to identify future Army aviation related systems and subsystems; (b) the identification of systems with unique training needs; and (c) the determination of training requirements and the forecasting of behavioral research requirements for the systems with unique training needs. This research is intended to assist the Army behavioral research requirements for future Army aviation aircrew training before the new aviation systems and subsystems are introduced. The lead time provided by the early initiation of behavioral research programs should aid the development of effective training systems. Requirements for the behavioral research needed to support Army aviation training programs in the time frame 1985 to 2000 are described in this report of U.S. Army aviation training R&D needs. The appendix (published as ARI Research Note 82-29) presents the survey results in questionnaire format, as they were originally obtained, together with information on scoring model weighting, and a complete listing of the bibliographical references.
