Six series of experiments 11 individual experiments were conducted to further extend automaticcontrolled processing research to command and control mission-specific training. The issues examined in these experiments were related to retention of task-component skills amount of practice component training for memory-search-dependent tasks and effects of degree of consistency, context, and task performance dependent on interactions of memory scanning, visual search, rule-based processing and acquisition of procedural knowledge. A final section of the document outlines how the present data provide processing principles which augment previous human performance guidelines that have been shown to be important for high-performance-skills training.
