Abstract:

A program exists within the Air Force Human Resources Laboratory to develop techniques for automated assessment of pilot performance. To insure that quantitative assessment capabilities are available for the evaluation of the Advanced Simulator for Underground Pilot Training ASUPT and to make efficient use of existing resources, measuremtnt development is being limited initially to six aircraft maneuvers. These are a Lazy 8, b Barrel Roll, c Normal Pattern and Landing, d Cloverleaf, e Normal Spin, and f Split-S. The rationale for selection of these particular maneuvers is discussed in the first part of this report. Subsequent to selection, extensive maneuver analyses were performed. The analysis format was chosen specifically for the purpose of supporting automated proficiency measurement development. These categories of information which constitute the analyses are described and the procedures whereby the information was obtained are detailed. Author
