Military Aircraft missions are all multidimensional in nature. This means that every mission can be divided into usually one overall goal or purpose i.e., destroy the target, deliver the supplies, rescue the survivors, etc., with several subgoals safety, minimize susceptibility, timeliness, etc.. Since missions are multidimensional, the operator effort in the form of mental and physical action performance becomes multidimensional. The multidimensional nature of skilled aircrew performance, in turn, requires that several criteria, all of which are relevant for a particular activity, be defined and used. The unique situation of an aircrew flying an aircraft for a specific mission and the necessary determination of subcriteria for evaluating accomplishment of that mission requires further research of an analytical and empirical nature. The relationship among altitude, airspeed, operator activity, and the hundreds of other system variables that comprise the total system must be compared to mission success in quantifiable terms. This study is an effort to improve acquisition of training performance information in affordable ways on behalf of the Hellenic Air Force HAF. Thus, it is divided in 1 The principles of human performance, 2 Definition of the criteria and their measurement, 3 Systematic definition of performance measure appropriate to combat-training needs, 4 Definition of a cost effective measurement system usable in combat- crew training environments to acquire and process needed training information. Originator supplied keywords include Pilot performance Performance criteria development and Pilot performance evaluation.
