Abstract:

The effectiveness of any combat weapon system is in large measure a function of the level of performance of the soldier operator. The US Army is interested in ensuring maximum effectiveness of the new M1 tank system by optimally selecting and training Ml crewmen. To support the Armys effort in maximizing system effectiveness from the personnel selection aspect, the Army Research Institute has conducted extensive research in the area of tank crewman performance prediction during the past several years. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the results of this research in order to determine by job content area, for both trainees and job incumbents, whether quantifiable aptitudes are related to tank gunnery performance.
