Abstract:

The purpose of this effort was to increase the effective use of aerial surveillance and reconnaissance AS and R resources by combat commanders through analysis of current experience and training and subsequent development of materials that may be used for training and field use. Contemporary training materials were analyzed for content. Questionnaires pertaining to experience with, attitudes toward, and training received relative to AS and R were distributed to students at pertinent schools, and the responses were analyzed for implications for training. Combat Arms students receive limited training in the use of AS and R resources, and they felt they could use more information in this area. The more experience with AS and R, the more favorable has been the experience with this resource. More emphasis should be placed on practical exercises that permit appropriate interaction with the capabilities of AS and R. The results of the analyses were used in the subsequent development of training materials and a field aid.
