Abstract:

This report describes development and evaluation of a 12-hour Program of Instruction in basic land navigation, for use in Army Basic Combat Training ATP 21-114. The specification of a performance requirement for basic land navigation by enlisted personnel is summarized in an appendix. The experimental program of instruction, which was built around instruction in dead reckoning and map-terrain association, is outlined. A sample of basic trainees was trained by the POI and tested on a night proficiency test, with about 75 per cent of the sample meeting the performance requirement. Author
