Four specific aircraft training program development efforts A-6E, E-2C, EA-6B, and SH-2F were examined and compared as to methodology and procedures used. The four efforts embodied principles of the Systems Approach to Training SAT andor Instructional Systems Development ISD. Three different contractors were involved, and the programs were under the technical direction of the Naval Training Equipment Center. The four projects carried through the point in the SATISD process of development of lesson specification documents. In addition to examining procedural and methodological differences of the four programs, the report describes the various program products and examines their utility for subsequent steps in the SATISD process. The report also examines the general model that has been evolving in a variety of NAVTRAEQUIPCEN sponsored efforts for the conduct of SATISD programs. The model and its associated documentation are examined in terms of their utility for aviation training program developmental efforts. The report concludes that these various activities have advanced the Navys capabilities significantly for the development of more effective aviation training program efforts in the future. Several areas are suggested for further improvement of the model. These include 1 making it more applicable to complex in-cockpit psycho-motor skills as contrasted with cognitive skills 2 techniques of flight performance measurement, and 3 means of enhancing the role of simulator training in the model.
