Abstract:

This report outlines a novel data collection technique whereby the standard aim trace muzzle tracing feature of the Engagement Skills Trainer 2000 can be captured as a recording, specified over a time interval, and quantified as a root mean square RMS distance from the target center of mass. As a research tool, aim trace can represent the dynamic compilation and integration of multiple aspects of the visual-vestibulocochlear-musculoskeletal system of systems as it relates to marksmanship tasks. To this end, it may be of importance to the researcher employing the EST 2000 as a research tool for areas such as Traumatic Brain Injury TBI and Soldier return to duty.
