Abstract:

This exploratory development effort was directed towards two objectives. First, refinement of a behavioral data design technique for the identification and specification of training device requirements and second, use of these techniques to specify and procure a prototype, low-cost, functional part-task trainer for the F-106A RadarInfrared Fire Control System. The design technique uses instructional systems development ISD data as a baseline and adds further analysis and information from the prospective operational users to determine 1 Which of the training tasks actually need to be taught in the proposed device and 2 The costbenefit relationship of various degrees of simulation for each task. A one-year evaluation of the actual training impact of the device currently is being conducted. The design techniques used resulted in an inexpensive, reliable trainer with considerable flexibility inherent in the design.
