Abstract : Researchers in the Aircrew Evaluation Sustained Operations Performance (AESOP) facility of the Crew Systems Directorate, Armstrong Laboratory (AL/CFTO) developed the capability to run realistic Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) scenarios, initially for performance measurement of trained Weapons Directors (WDs). Subsequently, in cooperation with the Technical Training Research Division of the Human Resources Directorate, Armstrong Laboratory (AL/HRT), Systems Research Laboratories, Inc. (SRL) developed, as a proof of concept, an ,intelligent Tutoring System (ITS) for Air Force WDs. Current human instructor-based training was observed and analyzed, instruction materials were obtained, and criteria were developed. The resulting design of the ITS consists of the AWACS simulation system, the knowledge domain, the instructor model, the student model, and an intelligent interface linking them. Though not fully implemented for this proof-of-concept effort, it is planned that each of these elements be tailored to suit the purposes of an ITS for AWACS WDs. Prior to Lesson One, the student completes a skills assessment module to establish a skill level ranging from novice to master. Software was developed to present Lesson One. Evaluation occurs at the end of the lesson. Recommendations for future development are presented....
