Abstract:

The Automated Training Technology team of the Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences performs research in areas that include the use of simulators and devices in military training. Of special interest is research in the area of evaluating simulators and devices in terms of transfer of training to the actual weapon system. In order to do this however, specific objective tests of Military Occupational Speciality skills must have been developed with criterion performance measures set. This report provides criterion performance measures for reliable tests of non-procedural M1 tank driver skills that could serve as standards for tank driver simulator training. The tests could also be of service to the Army for the determination of how well soldier perform the different skills that are required of tank drivers. The driving tests can further application as criterion measures for evaluating tank driver performance under degraded modes. Tank Driving Tests can also prove valuable in evaluating new tank design concepts such as those being incorporated in the Surrogate Research Vehicle and Tank Test Bed.
