Abstract:

Recent advances in aircrew training methods and technologies now allow the Air Force to conceptualize training as the peacetime manifestation of war. That is, ground-base pilot training can now move beyond simply training procedural skills to training wartime mission skills on a much more frequent basis than past training range has allowed. We discuss RD advances in three key areas that will truly allow the US Air Force to train as it intends to fight. These three areas are Warfighter Training Behavioral Research, Distributed Mission Training Engineeering Development, Night Vision Device Training RD. Under each of these three main categories of RD, we discuss specific advances made at the Armstrong Laboratory, Human Resource Directorate, Aircrew Training research Division. We also discuss future directions that we believe aircrew RD should advance in order to provide synthetic training environments that will allow the full measure of warfighting skills to be trained.
