Abstract : This report presents the results of an Air Cushion Vehicle Operator Training System (ACVOTS) Problem Analysis. Data were collected from training site visits. The focus of the analysis was on the JEFF B air cushion vehicle. Significant recommendations for development of a Landing Craft, Air Cushion (LCAC) training system that will result in a training and cost effective operator training system are as follows: Conduct an ISD program per MIL-T- 29053B(TD), MIL-STD-1379B, or similar specifications; Incorporate 'lessons learned' and training concepts and strategies from both the surface and aviation communities, as well as the existing AALC and Voyageur ACV programs; Assign an education specialist (1710) to the LCAC program; Develop an LCAC operator manuals systems; Develop an LCAC operator instructor training program, and Expand the ISD training development to other LCAC areas to include remaining onboard crew members and all areas of LCAC maintenance.
