Abstract:

This paper documents Armstrong Laboratorys Aircrew Training Research Divisions ALHRA participation on the Flight Vehicle Integration Panel Symposium of the AGARD Flight Conference held in May 1995. The paper is concerned with the general problem of measuring the value of simulation for combat mission training. There are a number of engineering efforts currently attempting to develop multi-player, virtual simulations that will allow soldiers, sailors, and pilots to interact with one another in a synthetic battlefield for combat mission training. This paper briefly discusses the continuation training for estimating the training payoff of these efforts. It summarizes the results of recent efforts conducted by ALHRA to assess the value of combat mission simulation for continuation training of pilots. Although the results of these studies indicate high user acceptance for simulation and improved performance during the course of simulator-based training, transfer of training data has yet to be obtained. This paper was included in the AGARD Conference Proceedings 577, AGARD-CP-577, pp 37-1 to 37-8.
