Abstract:

Aircrew training devices for the teaching of tactical combat maneuvering currently range from simple desk-top trainers to large weapon system trainers with limited visual systems. Still missing from the spectrum is the capability to practice full-mission multi-ship scenarios. At present such training can only be provided by major field exercises such as Red Flag, at great expense. A network of hostile-environment simulators could greatly increase the frequency of training, provide more realistic training, and keep pilots at a higher state of readiness than by using aircraft alone. The Air Force Human Resources Laboratory is exploring technology requirements for multiple aircraft simulation under Project 2743, the Combat Mission Trainer CMT program. The goal is to develop a full-mission combat simulator affordable at the wing level and capable of training all air-to-air and air-to-ground tasks. Author
