An Evaluation Framework for Designing a Night Vision, Computer-Based Trainer
NAVAL POSTGRADUATE SCHOOL MONTEREY CA
Pagination or Media Count:
The mission requirement of low-level, nightime navigation employing night vision goggles has expanded. This has led to a greater demand for training NVG skills and initiated a requirement for a low-cost, desktop, computer-based trainer CBT. A framework is presented in this thesis that includes a review of the technology available for designing a night vision CBT. System attributes and constraints are identified and analyzed and evaluation criteria developed to allow for examination of alternative system configurations. Two configurations are developed one PC-based and one workstation-based. These configurations present different costbenefit components. A sample in graphics capabilities, processor performance and peripheral support is provided for the two configurations. In addition, cost range estimates are included and possible baseline capabilities established to assist in the determination process.
