Abstract:

Embedded Training ET, as an integral part of weapon system design, offers what appears to be a unique and cost effective training capability. ET was developed for the MCS 2 system to help validate a set of embedded training development procedures being undertaken in a concurrent program, Systems Design Concepts to Support Embedded Training ET. MCS 2 is a battlefield management system under development by the Army Development and Employment Agency ADEA. This effort resulted in the generation of computer-aided instruction CAI courseware, but did not succeed in implementing interactive ET, in which the trainee uses the operating software under controlled conditions. The causative factors for this are documented as lessons to be integrated into the concurrent program. Keywords Embedded training, Training system development, Maneuver control system 2 MCS 2, Computer-based training, Training requirements.
