The report reflects the results of an investigative study into the techniques offering the most effective solutions to the problems of providing conduct-of-fire training for tank gunners and commanders. The study provides an analysis of related critical task functions as they impact on simulation and training device equipment requirements. Five different technical approaches, identified in a survey of industry for applicable technology are evaluated against system requirements and on the basis of cost, availability, configuration, and support requirements. The study recommends the limited development of an existing prototype, with the concurrent development of a reduced-capability trainer. As a separate but concurrent effort, a conceptual approach is developed for a conduct-of-fire trainer COFT integral to an operational vehicle. The integral COFT proposes use of a microprocessor to interface with the vehicles fire control equipment and ballistic computer, and the use of a liquid crystal to display the target image and special visual effects.
