This paper 1 assesses IOS designs for current-generation Operational Flight Trainers OFT and Weapon Systems Trainers WST, 2 identifies strengths and weaknesses, 3 develops an approach to improved IOS design, and 4 develops alternative IOS configurations. The alternatives are comparable in training capability. They differ in their primary methods of control fixed-function console-mounted electronic touch pads versus variable-function CRT touch panels. The primary conclusion of the paper focuses on the importance of systematic application of training data with the resultant potential for improvement in IOS design and operations.
