The Surveillance Systems Work Unit Area of the U.S. Army Research Inst for the Behavioral and Social Sciences has been analyzing the Armys aerial surveillance and reconnaissance ASR system, particularly with respect to the G2 Air Officer position and image interpretation personnel. This present effort concentrated on developing resource management materials for the G2 Air Officer that could be used for on-the-job training and guidance in the performance of duties and in intelligence school courses. Resource management materials were compiled in the form of a handbook to achieve the training objectives. The first step involved gathering information on tasks as performed by operational ASR units. Next, a content outline of the handbook was prepared by integrating the field interview data with the existing data base. Third, preparation of the handbook itself took into account the various training techniques and aids appropriate for on-the-job and school application. Step four consisted of conducting a limited evaluation of the handbook to determine its usefulness, acceptance, and final structure. Next, a preliminary edition of the handbook used the information derived from the evaluation. Finally, an automated demonstration of a portion of the handbook illustrated how the materials could be used with possible future computerized information systems.
