Abstract:

The goal of this research is to combine the principles of instructional design and computer technology in order to produce a multimedia computer based trainer for the Aviation Night Vision Image System and Heads up Display ANVISHUD. The technological advances in night vision goggles like the ANVISHUD system have permitted aircrews to accomplish numerous night mission tasks which they were not previously capable of completing. Increase in mission tasking requires the operators of the ANVISHUD system to obtain a large amount of ANVISHUD training to ensure safety of personnel and equipment as well as mission success. The Department of the Navys training budget is being reduced and the need for unconventional training methods to augment the cockpit and classroom is essential. The use of computer based training provides the technology to achieve this training requirement. By providing a means to apply innovative instructional design principles and multimedia computer technology, the training of the war fighters is expected to be accomplished both effectively and efficiently thus saving lives and money.
