Abstract:

The Armys Combat Vehicle Identification CVI Training Program GTA 17-2-9 uses a 35mm slide system. Utilization of the Bessler CueSee and Videotape as additional media on which to present CVI raised the issue of the extent to which these systems could affect image quality with a commensurate reduction of training effectiveness. To evaluate the effects of image quality differences among the 35mm, Bessler, and videotape systems, 105 soldiers were pretested, trained on the three media, each of which used the CVI Training Program. Performance was measured by the correct number of vehicle recognition and identification responses. Comparisons of performance scores across the three media were not significantly different. It was concluded that the image quality of all three of the media was satisfactory for use with the CVI Training Program. No conclusions were drawn regarding the relative overall value of the three systems as training devices. Keywords Vehicle Recognition Vehicle Identification Bessler Video Media Evaluation.
