Abstract : The effectiveness of a low fidelity, laptop training simulator has been proven in this study. Military personnel from elite units of the armed forces participated in simulation training prior to conducting real world training at Strategic Operations. Researchers observed, studied and quantified the training transfer that occurred from the laptop simulator to the real world. A series of performance assessment metrics and training effectiveness models were utilized in this study.
