Abstract:

AMTESS is the Armys attempt to develop an operational model and framework for acquiring modularized, generic simulation systems for maintenance training. More broadly, the AMTESS program is designed to lead toward a proven, systematized, institutionalized approach to task analysis, training requirements analysis, and fidelity analysis in support of training device acquisition. It is also designed to produce a model hardware configuration which includes a common two-dimensional display subsystem and a unique three dimensional hardware subsystem. Two prototype versions of the hardware model which vary along a number of significant dimensions e.g., passive vs interactive use of video Maryland. In this paper, the AMTESS prototypes will be described, along with plans and procedures for their evaluations.
