Abstract:

The purpose of this research was to validate and calibrate performance criteria for Short Range Air Defense task and summary engagements for use in the training, evaluation, and qualification of Career Management Field 16 Series soldiers. In 1989, engagement performance criteria were subjected to multiple field test experiments using the Realistic Air Defense Engagement System RADES and the Range Target System RTS. Participants were soldiers using the Stinger, Chaparral, and Vulcan air defense weapons. Engagement performance varied as a function of experience level, scenario difficulty level, and individual differences in ability and personality. These results enabled the fine tuning of performance and scenario difficulty criteria. Performance standards are proposed.
