Abstract:

A series of interrelated analytical tasks was completed in order to support the training development of the AHIP scout, AH-64, and AH-1SMC helicopters. The tasks were 1 mission profile analysis, 2 time series analysis, 3 allocation of functions, 4 detailed task analysis, and 5 training requirements development. Each task resulted in an individual set of end products which provide required information in themselves and which formed the basis of later tasks. The need for coordination training, both within helicopter team training courses and between team training courses, and for training in problem solving are pointed out, along with the possible need for selection standards methods which are based on the crew members ability to solve problems while under high levels of collateral perceptual-motor load.
