Abstract : The first volume of this report (ARI Technical Report 783) presented the analytic rationale for determining the requirements of a device-based program for training and testing armor skills. The resulting concept indicated that it was feasible to use existing devices to train and test much of the domain of tank gunnery in an integrated fashion. However, there were gaps in the program where devices did not support substantial portions of the domain. Also, there were cases where training on basic skills and knowledges was not integrated into training on higher level skills. It was concluded that on-tank experience at both the beginning and advanced stages of training is necessary to train and test the entire domain of gunnery. This second volume of the report details the results that support the research activities described above. These detailed results are presented as a series of appendixes that support the following research activities: (a) definition of the domain of gunnery in terms of individual conditions and actions; (b) identification of gunnery performance deficiencies through an analysis of Directorate of Evaluation and Standardization (DOES) performance data, a review of the research literature, and an analysis of Table VIII performance at Grafenwohr; (c) identification of training and testing objectives through a hierarchical analysis of the gunnery domain; (d) evaluation of gunnery devices with respect to their fidelity features, instructional features, and testing features; and (e) specification of the training and testing program by a detailed listing of objectives within instructional units. Keywords: Gunnery trainers; Tank crews; Training devices; Army training.
