Abstract:

As a result of the Phase 1 investigation, many specific gaps were identified in the empirical research literature regarding the use of simulators for mariner training. These gaps cover a wide range of variables relative to simulation and its influence upon training effectiveness and performance validity. Phase 2 clarifies several of the more important issues facing the design and use of simulators for mariner training by initiating a systematic investigation of several simulation and training program variables. The variables investigated during this phase of the research were colorblack and white visual scene, daynight simulation, horizontal field of view, target controllability, feedback methodology, and instructor differences.
