Abstract:

Recognizing both the potential benefits and the potential risks associated with the use of training devices and simulators as adjuncts and substitutes for operational equipment, the Army has evolved a multi-tiered assessment policy, in which plans and devices are evaluated at successive phases of development, from concept evaluation to operational testing. The material presented in this training TSP for the XM1 UCOFT was developed in response to the test concept for OT II to answer three of the operational issues asked in the IEP for the UCOFT. These answers will be used in the decision to continue into the production stage of the UCOFT and to select a production source. The three operational issues are The training effectiveness of each of the three XM1 training alternatives in sustaining gunnery proficiency of XM1 Gunners and Commanders The transfer effectiveness of the three XM1 training alternatives in sustaining gunnery proficiency of XM1 Gunners and Commanders and the training resources required for each of the three XM1 training alternatives.
