Abstract:

Tank gunnery training devices are designed to decrease the costs and other resources required for training. To realize the potential resource savings of devices and, at the same time, maintain desired proficiency, cost-effective tradeoffs must be specified for device training and on-tank training. This report presents methods for deriving and using these specifications. In addition, the report summarizes the support requirements for obtaining the data necessary for using the methods specified. The recommended approach is to obtain the data from actual performance-based gunnery data. At the same time, it was recognized that this may not be feasible. Because of this difficulty, an alternative judgment-based method, called simulated transfer, is offered to generate surrogate performance data.
