Abstract:

In an effort to reduce the costs and increase the efficiency of initial and sustainment training of XM1 armor crewmen, the Army is exploring the use of simulators for driving and tank gunnery. Assessment of transfer of training to operational equipment and estimation of the predictive validity of proficiency on a simulator are addressed empirically by the Armys operational testing system for device evaluation. The purpose of this report is to present the products prepared in response to the Task 1 and Task 2 requirements for Mission-Based Simulation and Training Requirements to design institutional training for XM1 driving and gunnery, and unit sustainment training for XM1 gunnery. Specifically, three products are presented Capabilities analyses for XM1 armor crewman training devices Recommended training program for XM1 armor crewman institutional training Recommended unit sustainment training program for XM1 gunnery.
