Abstract:

The supplement presents examples of SNAP programming which were prepared for the NIKE Hercules HIPAR course at The Ordnance Guided Missile School, Huntsville, Alabama. This course uses the FORECAST concept for training repairmen in system troubleshooting and overall system understanding. The programmed materials were prepared for an experiment in programmed instruction in troubleshooting. The portion of the HIPAR system for which they were intended Transmitter was changed greatly by the manufacturer after the materials were prepared, making them obsolete for their original purpose. These examples of SNAP programming were intended for personnel with a background in electronics and radar. Although this type of background is helpful, the material can be understood by almost anyone who is willing to apply himself. There are four sections of material, each concerned with a different aspect of troubleshooting training.
