This report, prepared for Air Force personnel responsible for the development and execution of future programs of research on the design, development, and use of aircrew training devices ATDs, presents topics to be considered in the development of future ATD research programs. The topics were developed in the course of the Simulator Training Requirements and Effectiveness Study STRES. One objective of STRES was to identify gaps in the technology base that underlies the development and use of ATDs. Research needs were identified on the basis of reviews of the simulation research literature observations and interviews conducted at a wide variety of simulator training agencies interviews and discussions with simulator research, procurement, management, and design personnel and comparisons of suggested topics with plans of various ATD research agencies. The report presents a basic listing of 111 potential research topics. Detailed research plans were developed for 21 of these topics of highest priority. Each plan includes a problem statement b research overview c analytic requirements d suggested experimental methodology e subjects requirements f data collection and analysis plans g facilities requirements and h projected schedule and manpower requirements. Less detailed plans are presented for nine additional topics. Author
