Abstract:

In order to improve acquisition of training performance information through usable tools, this study was directed to 1 systematic definition of performance measures appropriate to combat-training needs and 2 definition of a cost effective measurement system usable in combat-crew training environments to acquire and process needed training information. Definitions of needed performance measures were based on data derived from data collection trips to Castle AFB B-52, Altus AFB C-141, Dyess AFB C-130, Davis-Monthan AFB F-4 , Tyndall AFB F-106, Luke AFB A-7, George AFB F-4 crew, Norton AFB C-141 crew, Nellis AFB F-4 ACM. System criteria were based on an analysis of combat-crew training research procedures. Design studies were performed to provide data for tradeoffs between alternative system candidates. Finally, detailed system specifications and an implementation plan were prepared. Measurement was generated in the following steps 1 The requirements of six aircraft were consolidated into a common framework of maneuvers Transition, Instruments, Formation, Air Combat, Air Refueling, Ground Attack, Air Drop, Radar Navigation and Bombing 2 For each maneuver, data collected from CCTS visits were formalized into measurement requirements 3 Measurement parameters and 4 specifications were produced for hardware and software implications, respectively and 5 Examination of crew interactions led to an analysis of communications measurement.
