The paper presents a selective review of previous and contemporary methods of teaching aircraft recognition to personnel manning forward area air defense weapons. Methods in use since about 1940, including the WEFT System image-analysis concept, the Renshaw System whole-image concept, the modified WEFT-Renshaw System learning of aircraft features, and a method are examined. Research designed to coordinate studies of training with generalization, retention, and transfer in order to provide a better assessment of training effectiveness, is described.
