Abstract:

The research is concerned with obtaining the answers to three questions 1 What will be required of tomorrows aerial observer 2 How well is todays observer equipped to satisfy these requirements and 3 What changes in training emphases are necessary to reduce the differences between the two. The report presents answers to the first queation, and describes the methods used to answer the second. The first chapter contains statements of those skills and knowledges that will be required of the aerial observer in the future, and the circumstances under which he may be expected to operate. The remaining chapters describe the rationale and procedures that were employed in developing and implementing three tactical field tests designed to yield information on the performance of todays observers when faced with future combat situations.
