Abstract:

At present, propulsion engineering training is a major problem for the Navy. NAVPERSRANDCENs goal is to build an intelligent computer-aided instruction ICAI training system to enhance Navy training in this area and evaluate the potential of new computer-based technology to provide a qualitatively different form of training. The STEAMER project is concerned with the design and implementation of a training system to instruct personnel in the principles of propulsion engineering. Operational personnel need to understand these principles of plant operation in order to remember the multitude of procedures required for safe plant operation and to be able to respond to a myriad of potential casualty conditions.
