Abstract:

An analysis was performed to identify specific skills required to successfully perform mission planning and navigational tasks for the future tactical umnanned vehicle TUV and to determine if U.S. Army soldiers and U.S. marines with a beginning skill level of 10 have those skills. This analysis was performed by the Human Research and Engineering Directorate of the U.S. Army Research Laboratory at the request of the Program Manager Unmanned Ground VehiclesSystems. Military occupational specialties examined included U.S. Army infantryman 11B, cavalry scout 19D, and the Marine Corps rifleman 0300. System required mission planning pre mission and navigational functions and tasks were identified. Soldier marine navigational skills were compared to mission planning and navigational tasks. Results of the analysis show that of 70 navigational skills required by the TUV system, 33 are mismatched because of a higher skills requirement, untrained system specific skills, or a combination of both.
