Abstract:

Advances in microcomputer and communication technologies make a network of relatively low-cost, interconnected combat simulators possible. Such a network would allow tens or even hundreds of aircraft to fight each other in simulated but realistic battles. It would also allow aircraft to interact with ground vehicles and surface-to-air-missiles SAMs. Such a network is already being constructed for Army tanks. This conceptual research effort examined a range of questions and options that might be considered with a network of tactical aircraft combat simulators. Although the main emphasis of the research was on training, some consideration was given to the use of such a network in aircraft development and in pilot selection. While such a network of aircraft simulators remains to be built, the results of this study suggest that such a network should be given serious consideration. Keywords Pilot training.
